Gilas Pilipinas put up a gallant stand as it came close to shocking host and world No. 5 Serbia in the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament following a nail-biting 76-83 defeat.

Although the Filipinos still absorbed a loss, they earned the respect of Serbian head coach Igor Kokoskov as they nearly upset the home team in front of its home crowd.

Jordan Heading also showed up with 13 points built on four three-pointers, Kai Sotto chalked up 10 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 steals, while RJ Abarrientos added 9 points.
