Philippine national men’s basketball team star guard Jayson Castro maintained his title as one of the best players in the continent after being named to the all-star team of the 2015 FIBA Asia Championship Saturday in Changsha, China.
Castro, the main driving force of Gilas Pilipinas, was included to the Mythical Team for the second straight time after also earning the accolade in the 2013 edition of the tournament held in Manila.
Joining Castro are Iran’s Samad Nikkhah Bahrami and three Chinese players in Guo Ailun, Zhou Qi and Yi Jianlian who was hailed as the tournament MVP.
Castro was brilliant all tournament long for Gilas Pilipinas which captured the silver medal after bowing to China in the final.
