The Philippines’ Gilas Pilipinas is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Team Tunisia at 8:00 P.M. on September 6, 2019 live from the Wukesong Arena, Beijing, China.
The Gilas Pilipinas still searching its first win in the 2019 FIBA World Cup and they hope that tonight they’ll find that elusive “W” while the Tunisian wanted to dominate the classification round when the tournament continues in China.
Team Philippines almost got the victory against team Angola on their last day in Group D.
Though the team coached by Yeng Guiao still win-less but CJ Perez and Robert Bolick continue to have impressive performance and silenced their critics when they got first selected to join the national squad.
Likewise, Andray Blatche found his rhythm when they played against Angola where he led the Filipino squad with 23 points and 12 rebounds.
For team Tunisia on the other hand, they were 1-2 in Group C where their sole victory came from team Iran.
In their last outing, they got defeated by team Puerto Rico by a mere three-points and lost their chance to move to the second round of the competition. Instead, they’re relegated to the classification round.
Salah Mejri and Omar Abada was Tunisia’s high scorer in that exciting match where they each scored 14 points.
