The Philippines will be facing a tough competition in vying to be one of the three host countries of the Olympic Qualifiers for next year.
The Philippines needs prayers and a lot of convincing in order to get the nod of FIBA to award us to host one of the three Qualifying tournaments for the Olympics in July 2016.
The country will be going up against Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Serbia and Turkey.
FIBA will be making its announcement on January 19, 2016.
Only the top teams from the three six-team tournaments will make it to the Rio Olympics. (with DZRH Chris Capulso)
