If games results are archived, why not include game plans and scouting reports?
In order to save time, Gilas Pilipinas head coach Yeng Guiao is proposing that the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas document the national team program in future international campaigns.
“We need to do this for future references, so that whichever group is handling the national team, it won’t be left out in the dark,” Guiao said.
“We want to share this database because this is for the Philippine team after all.”
Formed only two weeks ahead of the 18th Asian Games, the Rain or Shine-led team competed with minimum scouting reports on its opponents.
“In creating an archive of game plans and scouting reports, it will certainly help the future national squads since they have files to look over at,” Guiao added.
Ryan Gregorio – the team’s chief scout, who was appointed recently as Special Assistant to SBP President Al Panlilio – will gather data Guiao recommended.
“The main proponent of this is coach Yeng Guiao.
“We hail coach Yeng to high heavens as a person who puts the best interest of the country and put this program as priority. I will [direct] it as part of the SAP function in the SBP,” Gregorio said.
