Team Philippines is scheduled for a head-to-head game against team Turkmenistan at 5:00 P.M. (PHI time) on October 5, 2018 live from Xi’an, China.
Gilas Pilipinas will try to bounce back after back-to-back defeats in the opening day of the tournament and keep their chances to move to the second round alive.
Against team Serbia last Wednesday, a squad which is one of the top dogs of the FIBA 3X3 Under 23, team Philippines shown some “Never Say Die” spirit.
Down with the score of 7-18, led by Ricci Rivero, the national team rallied back and unleashed a 7-1 blast. However the outside shooting of team Serbia continue to drop and there’s nothing more our boys can do.
The game started close but Serbia made its separation when they were able to hit long two after long two.
Rivero shown tenacity in the defense as he was seen swatting several shots from their opponent.
At 5:00 PM another top contender Gilas Pilipinas will meet, that’s the team Turkmenistan that defeated team Serbia two days ago.
