Batang Gilas falls short of bronze, still bound for FIBA Worlds

Batang Gilas has bowed out of the 2018 FIBA Asia Under-18 Championship with two loses in a row. Just a day after getting eliminated from contention by Australia, the Filipinos again faltered in the battle for third on Saturday, this time in the face of a more determined China side, 76-57, at the Stadium 29 in Thailand. Both Kai Sotto and AJ Edu had bounced back games individually, with the former finishing with 16 points, eight rebounds, and one block and the latter ending with 14 markers, eight boards, and one rejection. However, they were the only two players who proved to be effective for the Philippines, as all of Dave Ildefonso, Migs Oczon, and Dalph Panopio only combined for 21 points in 9-of-30 shooting. Four day ago, Batang Gilas dominated the same Chinese side by a score of 73-63 to top their group in the preliminary round. After that, however, they were at the wrong end of routs by Australia in the semifinals and then China in the battle for third. Even with back-to-back losses the tournament, the Filipinos have already booked a ticket to the 2019 FIBA Under-19 World Cup by virtue of reching the semifinals. In doing so, they downed Lebanon, United Arab Emirates, China, and Bahrain along the way. BOX SCORES CHINA 76 – Wang QZ 27, Xu 18, Li 9, Guo 8, Jiang HR 7, Wang YZ 7, Chen 0, Shi 0. BATANG GILAS 57 – Sotto 16, Edu 14, Ildefonso 9, Oczon 7, Panopio 5, Abadiano 2, Amsali 2, Cortez 2, Lina 0, Ramirez 0, Torres 0. QUARTER SCORES: 27-14, 43-26, 59-43, 76-57. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Tamayo, Abadiano complete ‘strongest’ Batang Gilas ever

The Philippine national basketball team is nothing but positive as it heads to Argentina for the FIBA Under-17 World Cup. “Hindi tayo pupunta dun na ‘di tayo tiwala na kaya nating manalo,” Batang Gilas assistant coach Josh Reyes said in their send-off dinner on Monday in Ortigas. The Filipinos booked a ticket to Worlds after reaching the quarterfinals of the 2018 FIBA Asia Under-16 Championship. That team featured talented tower Kai Sotto, court general Forthsky Padrigao, streaky shooter Terrence Fortea, rim protector Raven Cortez, and scoring guard RC Calimag After that tournament, Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas was nothing but proud that the boys have accomplished their mission. Now, Batang Gilas has also added heady guard Gerry Abadiano and versatile big Carl Tamayo. That is exactly why Batang Gilas is nothing but positive even as it has been grouped with eighth-ranked host Argentina, 10th-ranked Croatia, and seventh-ranked France. “This is the strongest U17 team that the country has produced. We’re very excited kasi ‘di na maliit ang Pilipinas,” Ronald Mascarinas, president of team backer Chooks-to-Go shared. Indeed, the country, ranked 34th in the world, now boasts of five players listed at or higher than 6-foot-5. Of course, fronting the effort is UAAP champion and Finals MVP Sotto. And for him, there is no doubt that the Philippines could go far in the Worlds. “Naniniwala ako sa team ko na kahit anong mangyari, nasa likod ko sila. Ako rin, lagi akong nandito para sa kanila,” he said. Rounding out Batang Gilas are Yukien Andrada, King Balaga, Kyle Bautista, Geo Chiu, Mac Guadana, Rafael Go, and Joshua Lazaro. They will be coached by UAAP Juniors champion coach Mike Oliver alongside Reyes and Gilbert Lao. They fly to Argentina on Thursday for the tournament running from June 30 to July 8. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
