“last 2 mins of the game between Philippines and China. Phils. down by 5. Credo drives and dishes off to Pagsanjan at the 3pt area… Boom! Phils. now just down by 1. Stopped China on their offensive… Phils. on the attack! Belangel passes to Credo at the 3pt area… BOOM! Phils now up by 1… Phils again stops China’s offensive by Tibayan’s tap and eventual steal by Mamuyac… Mamuyac rushes down to drive to the basket and dishes off to Tibayan to finish the layup… Again Phils. stops China’s offensive… Credo deffensively rebounds the ball and off to Belangel… to Mamuyac to Tibayan and back to Belangel then a foul on Belangel. Inbound to Credo, dribbles the ball, pass to Belangel. Credo provides screen for Belangel to shoot eh 3pts to seal the deal… and the rest was HISTORY! :)”
The Philippines handed three-times reigning champions China their first defeat in the history of the competition. China has dominated the tournament with 31 successive wins starting from 2009.
Batang Gilas now moves on to the quarterfinals as they aim to improve from a silver medal finish in 2013.
