'This game make us really feel we're there at the World Cup, and the kind of team we're playing, they've been there as a team for a long time, with great talent, (and) very smooth system,' Reyes said following the Philippine team's 102-87 defeat to Montenegro in their friendly match on Sunday evening, August 20.'Offensively and defensively, I like how we competed.

'We started the third quarter with three straight turnovers and they (Black Mountain) scored two three-pointers and they scored a two-point shot, so right away, an 8-0 run. That basically turned the tide,' explained the 60-year-old Reyes.'When we give good quality teams like Montenegro momentum like that, it would be very, very hard to recover,' he stressed.
