Taiwan – Team Pilipinas Smart-Gilas back in the winning form after dropping a 4 point loss to Jordan.
Gilas started the game with both starter Marcus Douthit and JV Casio in the bench. Giving them the chance to at least regain their energy after an evident fatigue in the last game.
Both teams in the starting quarter showed up poor ball handling, suffered back to back turnovers until Aguilar made the first basket for Gilas.
Gilas bounced back a 24-2 run to control the game and manage a victory via a wide margin 86-68.
Highlight of the game was when Asi Taulava punched Malaysia’s Kwan Jing, for allegedly grabbing and punching him. Both were thrown out in the game for their respective actions. While Asi immediately apologize his action might be still playing against tough unbeaten Koreans.
“He grabbed my balls, squeezed it and then back-punched it,” said Taulava.
