The Philippines’ Batang Gilas Pilipinas is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the team Greece at 1:30 A.M. on June 30, 2019 (PHI time) live from Heraklion Arena, Crete, Greece.
The Gilas squad will start their 2019 FIBA U19 World Cup campaign against the home-team in the main event of today’s schedule.
To boost the chances of the Philippine squad to reach their goal on making to the Quarterfinals round they made a stopover in Qatar to sharpen their skills.
The towering tandem of Kai Sotto and AJ Edu were effective against a team that composed of much older players.
Batang Gilas won those two exhibition matches and not just an ordinary win but a blowout victory.
In the first encounter the game ended with the score of 79-54 then two days later they did it again with 93-64 blowout.
Those are very good news for our teenager Gilas squad but their real test will be early this morning of June 30 in the Philippines.
Gilas will face the Greek squad led by their 16-years-old player, Iosif Koloveros.
