23 10 2011

Nha Trang City, Vietnam – The 2nd round of the 2nd FIBA Asia U16 Championships has started and Day 1 was marked by some big routs and a few competitive matches. Korea, Lebanon, China, Japan, Indonesia, and the Philippines hurdled their respective opponents to improve their standings.

Energen Pilipinas wins again!

Here are the game results:

Consolation Match: Malaysia 78 – 30 Uzbekistan

Group E: Chinese-Taipei 59 – 79 Korea

The Koreans remain unbeaten as they drubbed fellow East Asia representative Chinese-Taipei. The Koreans lead by 10 at the end of the first quarter. They continued their pace and coasted to a 20-point victory. Kim Gookchan paced Korea with 18 points hitting 4 of his 9 three-point shot attempts. Lu Kuan-Shiuan led the losers with 13.

Group E: India 65 – 77 Lebanon

Lebanon leaned on the trio of Jimmy Salem, Gerard Hadidian, and Albert Zeinoun to win against a hard fighting Indian five. The trio combined for 63 points to lead Lebanon to a victory in a match that was close in the first half. Lebanon stepped on the gas in the 3rd period and never looked back.

Group E: China 84 – 41 Iraq

China hardly broke a sweat in dealing WABA’s Iraq another loss in the tournament.  China coach Wu Qinglong rarely used young giant Zhou Qi who only finished with 11 points. The scoring cudgels were taken by Zhao Jiwei who hit 7 of the 10 three-pointers by the defending champions. He finished with 24 points.

Group F: Japan 97 – 36 Vietnam

Japan showed no mercy to the hosts Vietnam as they peppered their opponents with 52 points in the first half while limiting the host’s stalwarts to just 6 points. The victory kept Japan undefeated so far in this tournament. Yudai Baba led the Japanese with 17 markers while Jason Trang top scored for Vietnam with 9 points.

Group F: Saudi Arabia 65 – 70 Indonesia

Southeast Asia‘s Indonesia won  the closest match of the night against Western Asia’s Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The match was a see-saw affair at the get-go and the Saudi Arabians still led 57-56 with 3:25 left in the game. Taufik Ramadhan of Indonesia scored 7 points in the game-ending 14-8 run by the Indons to secure the victory. He finished with 12 points enough to support the effort of Vincent Kosasih who finished 20 points. The Saudi loss wasted the 18 points of Abdulaziz  Sakar.

Group F: Qatar 28 -107 Philippines

In the final match of the day, the Philippines displayed another fantastic offensive performance in dropping a lackluster Qatar team. Coach Olsen Racela used all players except Kyles Lao. All who played the game for the Philippines scored a minimum of 5 points. The Philippines started the game with a 36-6 blitz en route to their 3rd win of the tournament. Janhubert Cani and Jordan Heading led the balanced attack with 15 points each. Mohammed Dawoud was the lone Qatari t score in double figures with 10.
