The Philippines’ Batang Gilas Pilipinas is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the team Australia at 9:30 P.M. on July 5, 2019 (PHI time) live from Heraklion Arena, Crete, Greece.
Batang Gilas went officially out for the gold contention after they got blown-out by the team Serbia in their previous outing.
Team Philippines will now play in the 9-16th place quarterfinals round and in that round they’ll facing team Australia.
The young Boomers got a 2-1 record in their Group B stage then they got beaten by team Lithuania in the Round of 16 phase.
In their recent outing against the team Serbia, Batang Gilas looks ok in the first quarter as they were trailing for only five points and was successful to set the tune of the game in their favor.
However, in the second quarter, the Serbian surge began and their lead started to balloon to double-digits.
Gilas were able to respond at the start of the third quarter and threatened to make a comeback. But, team Serbia made their adjustment and took over the game completely.
