Alapag to bring winning culture to Alab

Jimmy Alapag is hoping to bring in his hard-earned smarts from the international stage as he calls the shots for Alab Pilipinas in the Asean Basketball League (ABL)—the first stint as head-coach of the “Mighty Mouse.”

“I hope it (experience with Gilas Pilipinas) will be helpful. I hope the experiences that I went through I can share with our players and hopefully it will help them when they run the court,” Alapag told The Manila Times.

Alapag was a long-time member of the national team. He has been the captain of the Gilas squad who won the silver medal in the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Asia Championship in 2013 that ended the country’s 40-year drought in the FIBA World Cup in 2014.

After his storied career as a player for Gilas, Alapag continued to serve the national team as an assistant coach.

The 39-year old Alapag is grateful to his former mentors.
