Gilas Youth closes campaign in 2019 World Cup at 14th-place

Gilas Pilipinas Youth ended its run in the 2019 FIBA Under-19 World Cup by falling short against New Zealand, 70-76, Sunday night (Philippine time) inside Heraklion University Hall in Greece. Carl Tamayo had a strong showing for the second straight game with a 24-point, 12-rebound double-double while Dalph Panopio turned in his best outing in the tournament with 16 markers in this one. It was also Tamayo who had all but two points in the 8-0 run that erased a three-point deficit and erected a 66-61 advantage in favor of the Filipinos inside the last seven minutes. The Kiwis stormed back, however, and Flynn Cameron shot them to a 72-70 lead with 51 ticks to go. The Philippines had two tries at trying tally, but Dave Ildefonso's inside basket got blocked and Gerry Abadiano's floater fell short. Four made free throws by New Zealand later and Gilas Youth had to settle for 14th-place. Nonetheless, the finish is the third-best in all of Asia, ahead of China and just behind Australia and New Zealand. In their last game in the world meet, Dave Ildefonso had 16 points, five rebounds, and five assists while 7-foot-2, 17-year-old Kai Sotto had eight markers, eight boards, and four dimes.
