Gilas Pilipinas falls to South Korea in FIBA Asia Cup quarters

South Korea and Lebanon both progressed to the quarter-finals

And the Filipino fans who screamed their hearts out in personally witnessing Gilas' stirring wins over China, Iraq and Qatar were left silent as Korea resumed its dominance over the Philippines in the worldwide basketball scene.

After beating Gilas decisively, however, Korea will move on to the semis where it will face the victor of the game between Iran and host Lebanon on Saturday.

Head coach Chot Reyes, whose team swept their group to set up a quarter-final with a Korea team that needed to see off Japan in a play-off, put his players through a lighter practice in the build-up to today's quarter-final.

The Filipinos' last win came on their home floor during the 2013 FIBA Asia Championships.

With its near-perfect shooting, South Korea has eliminated Gilas Pilipinas in the 2017 FIBA-Asia Cup, issuing an emphatic 118-86 quarterfinal decision Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) at the Nouhad Nawfal Sports Complex in Beirut, Lebanon. Castro, as Jason William is known in his native Philippines, repeatedly fed Christian Standhardinger.

After being down by double digits early, the Philippines made it a game in the second quarter.

Saints fire 2 team doctors after finding out Delvin Breaux has fracture
Eight New Orleans Saints players were not observed on the field Wednesday at the start of the 16 day of training camp practice. New Orleans Saints defensive back Delvin Breaux has a fractured fibula but was initially diagnosed with a contusion.

The second quarter started with both teams hitting long bombs after long bombs.

Not even the individual brilliance of Terrence Romeo, who scored all of his 22 points in the first half could prevent Gilas from denying South Korea's route to the semifinals in dominating fashion.

But the Koreans pressed on the gas pedal in the third-shooting at will from beyond the arc and attacking the hoops more aggressively-as their lead snowballed to 25 points, 87-62 at the end of the quarter. Romeo, Castro, and Japeth Aguilar combined for a quick 10-2 run that cut the Korean's lead 43-51. Tempers flare as the Philippines seems unable to get anything going. In addition, the Filipinos kept missing shots at point blank range.

Philippines vs South Korea scores and results will be posted here.

Oh Se-keun and Kim Sun-hyung were South Korea's leading scorers, finishing with 16 points apiece.
