Anthony's mother is Filipina, and he impressed recently during a tryout camp in Las Vegas for Filipino-Americans.
"Sean played in a scrimmage between Filipino-Americans and Smart-Gilas in Las Vegas and he impressed with good shot selection, tough defence and overall court sense ... He’s still learning and adjusting to coach (Rajko Toroman's) system. He also played in our games against the Red Bull and Talk ‘N Text teams, where he (contributed) good quality minutes." — Noli Eala, executive director, Phillipines national teamThe Phillipines is currently 63rd in the FIBA World Rankings, so even the discussed expansion of the Olympics from 12-16 teams might not help its bid to qualify for the 2012 London Summer Games. Still, it sounds like a great adventure for Sean Anthony.
