Aside from earning silver, Gilas Pilipinas also secured a ticket to the 2014 FIBA World Championships to be held next year in Madrid, Spain. Iran and South Korea, which took home the gold and the bronze, respectively, also qualified for next year's world cup.

"The Aquino administration joins the Filipino people in congratulating Gilas Pilipinas for winning the silver medal in the 2013 FIBA Asia Championships—and with it, a ticket to the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain," Sec. Edwin Lacierda said Sunday night. "This victory is the culmination of years of hard work, belief, and perseverance from our players and their families, from our coaching staff, from the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas led by Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan, and, most of all, from the entire Filipino nation, who has always stood behind the national team through their struggles and triumphs."

He added, "In unison, the nation urged our team forward, and with consummate 'puso,' they laid everything on the line for flag and country. Gilas Pilipinas has shown the world that no one can outsize the heart of the Filipino. May their performance inspire every Filipino to relentlessly pursue excellence, no matter what field they find themselves in, so that, together, we may fulfill our shared aspiration of a Philippine nation greater than ever before."

Gilas Pilipinas point guard Jayson Castro also made it to All-Star Five of the FIBA Asia Championship, joining Kim Mingoo of South Korea, Lin Chih-Chieh of Chinese Taipei, and Oshin Sahakian and Hamed Haddadi of Iran as the tournament’s top performers.

The silver finish is the Philippines' highest placement since winning the Asian title in 1985.

Backed by a crowd of thousands of Filipino basketball fans, Gilas Pilipinas defeated familiar foe South Korea, 86-79, in the semifinals of the 27th FIBA Asia Championship held at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City  on Saturday night, August 10.

"To all the haters and the skeptics, I forgive you," said Gilas Pilipinas head coach Chot Reyes. "God bless you and mabuhay ang Pilipinas."

"Our game plan was to force their big men to beat us. We didn't want their shooters to beat us," Reyes added. "That was for Jong [Uichico], for Olsen [Racela], for Rajko [Toroman] and for all those who had a hard time against Korea."

Gilas Pilipinas will take on the Iranian squad in Sunday's Final in a bid to be crowned champions of Asia, while South Korea and Chinese Taipei will battle for the third place.

The tournament's top three finishers will be given the privilege of playing against the best teams in the world next year in Madrid.

It would be the first appearance of the Philippines in the world stage since an eight-place showing in the 1978 Manila World Basketball Championship.
