For his whole career, Marc Pingris has been known to provide his team energy and hustle on the court.

Even with the Philippine national men’s basketball team, the San Mig Coffee forward is expected to provide the team a burst with his defense and rebounding.

Gilas team captain Jimmy Alapag spoke to Pingris after the match about the forward’s play.
