- Malaysia was expected to put up stiff resistance against the Philippines, but the Pinoys still ran roughshod over them. Kiefer Ravena proved to be very efficient, scoring 15 points in 18 minutes, while Mac Belo and Russel Escoto each dropped 14 markers off the bench. It was relatively close after the first period, when Sinag Pilipinas led by just 9 points, but a huge second quarter explosion blew the game open. The Malaysians just couldn’t recover after that. Veteran Koh Way Tek led the losing side with 11 points and 5 boards. Erstwhile impressive big man Tian Yuan Kuek was severely limited here, scoring just 2 points on 1/8 FG shooting, while young star Ivan Yeo didn’t even play a single minute.

Line of the Game: Mac Belo (PHI) - 14pts, 7rebs, 1ast, 1stl, 6/10 FGs.
