FIBA: Olympics somehow still in play for Gilas after China flames out of World Cup

Despite getting swept out of Group D in the 2019 FIBA World Cup, Gilas Pilipinas still has a prize to chase in China. It’s the Olympics, and one could argue if the national team somehow ends up in Tokyo next year, the horror show to start this World Cup will be undone. Host China blew a golden chance to secure its Olympics slot Wednesday, losing its final Group A game against Venezuela, 72-59. The Chinese earlier blew a better chance, losing Group A lead to Poland after folding in overtime. Gilas Pilipinas is 0-3 in the World Cup so far after lopsided losses to Italy, Serbia, and an overtime decision to Angola. Still, the Philippines is still somehow in play for the Olympics after South Korea, Jordan, Iran, Japan, and China also failed to advance to the second round. All teams in the classification phase will play two more games and will be seeded accordingly depending on their group finish. Results from the opening round will be carried over. Gilas Pilipinas will play in Beijing and will take on Iran and Tunisia and games will start Friday. — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
