Gilas Pilipinas 3.0 And Their Damn Strong...Hair Game
Another thing to watch for in the national team's games...

After a hard-fought war match, Gilas Pilipinas was able to withstand a highly physical and unbeaten Russian team, 85-71, in its third game at the 37th William Jones Cup—despite ending up with a bloodied Sonny Thoss, a ball thrown at Terrence Romeo, and a raging Asi Taulava.

While some have initially deemed this version of our national team as not the best our local talent pool could offer, Gilas 3.0 has been faring well in its recent tournament, with a 2-1 win-loss record, after a winless campaign in Estonia.

All this after reports of injuries and lack of personnel and practice (consider the case Marc Pingris, who just rejoined the team days before the tilt); we're seriously wondering how is the team managing—or more so, competing—given all these nagging issues on and off the court.

Our hypothesis: the team members' HAIR GAME

Yep, just like the biblical character Samson, whose strength is equal to the days he skips the barber and the electric shaver. Most Gilas players are sporting clean looks (We're looking at you, Captainj Jimmy), though there are a handful of them whose hair games are on point.

Take for instance...


TERRENCE AND HIS BOMBASTIC BLONDE TOP

...which might be quite distracting for those who guard him, aside from his killer crossovers.


CALVIN ABUEVA AND HIS FANTASTIC 'FRO

The Beast (and his real hairstyle), unleashed.


RANIDEL DE OCAMPO AND MOALA TAUTUAA CHANNELING JAMES HARDEN

One word: intimidation

Safe to say, there's no manong barbero in this contingent!
