Basketball is the most popular sport in the Philippines. In the aftermath of Superstorm Yolanda that struck the coast on November 8, 2013 leaving more than 6000 dead and many more homeless, basketball hoops were some of the first things to be repaired and rebuilt amongst the rubble, showing the Filipino's resilience and intense love for the sport. Five months after the storm, basketball courts have re-emerged in large numbers across the damaged provinces using any available space and many being rebuilt from storm debris.
