Filipinos jumped to their enjoyment on Thursday night after Gilas Pilipinas survived Senegal in extra 5 minutes to score the nation's first triumph in the FIBA Basketball World Cup after 40 long years of waiting, and the history happened in Seville, Spain.
Mark Jones of ESPN was one of the members of the International press who showed their admiration and respect for Gilas Pilipinas, who has won the hearts and adoration of basketball enthusiasts around the world after showing a heroic performance in the global arena with 81-79 win versus Senegal and almost winning over the world's best teams.

Mark Jones even posted on his Twitter account Gilas Pilipinas' battlecry.
NBA columnist Andy Bailey of Bleacher Report also tweeted:
There was even a feeling of compassion for the Former sports journalist and now a member of the Miami Heat organization Couper Moorhead, who hoped that Gilas Pilipinas entered the Round of 16. He also said that the Filipinos were “more enjoyable” to watch than defending champion Team USA.
