Jones Cup: Gilas smothers UAE

12 08 2011

After losing to Korea, Smart-Gilas vented their frustrations to the winless UAE team. they routed their opponents yesterday 90-65 to set-up an important match-up against a fighting Japanese team.  Team Japan is represented mostly by developmental players but has giving other teams very competitive games. A win by the Philippines over Japan will vault them into the semis.

Four players led by Marcus Douhit scored in double figures yesterday for the Gilas. They now have a record of 4-2 and trails Korea by just one game. Tied for second are the Philippines, Jordan, Iran, and host Taiwan.

Scores:

Smart-Gilas Pilipinas 95 — Douthit 23, Lutz 13, Lassiter 10, Taulava 10, Aguilar 8, Hontiveros 7, Casio 7, Tiu 6, Barroca 4, Ababou 4, Baracael 3, Ballesteros 0.

UAE 60 — Salem 15, Braiki 13, Mubarak 8, Omar 6, Alameri 5, Zaabi 5, Ahmed 4, Abdalla 4, Ahmad 0, Alhattawi 0, Alali 0, Almehairi 0.

Quarter scores: 19-10; 38-31; 65-49; 95-60.
