MANILA, Philippines – Sinag Pilipinas showcased its form in a 107-55 blowout of Cambodia in the 27th South East Asian (SEA) Games on Tuesday, December 10 at the Zayar Thiri Stadium in Myanmar.

Save for a close first quarter, the Philippine men’s national basketball team dominated the hapless Cambodia with many players contributing in the victory.

FEU’s Mac Belo led the Philippine team with 17 points. Five other players scored in double-digits for Sinag

Perlas setback 

However, their female counterparts dropped their second assignment against reigning SEAG titlists Thailand, 36-75.

The Thailand squad, who previously defeated Perlas 75-73 in the 2011 edition of the tournament, flashed their deadly form to bury the struggling Perlas.

Sinag will try to make it three straight when they battle home team Myanmar on Thursday while Perlas hopes to bounce back when they tackle Indonesia on Sunday. – with reports from Levi Verora/
