Gilas vs Qatar Replay

The hot shooting of the Philippines came in full display, led by the prolific marksmanship of Matthew Wright who scored 25 points on 7-of-12 shooting from rainbow territory.

The Philippines, assured of a quarterfinal spot after its third straight win, will now be waiting for the winner between Japan and South Korea which will be played on Monday.

Not even the absence of big man Christian Standhardinger, the early exit of Calvin Abueva and a brave stand from the Qataris could stop Gilas from completing a sweep of Pool B after victories over China and Iraq.
