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.

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.
