Posted by Sports5 on Friday, February 8, 2019
Reaching the semis is the goal of the team Philippines when they returned to Dubai for this year’s basketball tournament.
This goal is now achieved after Mighty Philippines disposed the Oil Sports Iraq in the knockout quarterfinals round.
That game seems like a takeaway for them in the first quarter but the Iraqi squad knows how to make a comeback.
Oil Sports gave the national squad and its fans a scary moment when team Iraq cut the lead to just six in the final quarter.
Mighty Sports has led as much as 22 points.
Bottom-line, Philippine team won the game and will be now playing Al Riyadi Beirut in the semi-final round.
The team from Lebanon is a six time Dubai International Basketball Tournament champion.
