MANILA, Philippines – First round done. Second round next.
Gilas Pilipinas outclassed 70th ranked Kuwait, 110-64, in their final match in Group B of the 2015 FIBA Asia Championship on Friday, September 25 at Changsha, Hunan, China.
The Philippines finished the first group stage strong with back-to-back blowout victories.
Gilas wrapped up first round play with a 2-1 record but will move on to the second round in Group E with a 1-1 carryover slate. Their win over Kuwait will not be credited as the winless Kuwait is already eliminated.
The nationals will face reigning champions Iran, India and Japan in the second round where the top 4 teams from each of the two groups will move on to the knockout quarterfinals.
The games resume Sunday, September 27 after a one-day break.
