    Batang Gilas in danger of finishing dead last in World Under-17 after loss to Egypt

    Aug 15, 2014

    THE Philippines dropped a 67-92 decision to Egypt on Friday and fell in danger of finishing last in the Fiba Under-17 World Championship in Dubai.

    Batang Gilas fell behind, 19-32, at the end of the first quarter to the hot-starting Egyptians and never recovered as they fell to their sixth straight defeat in this 16-nation youth tournament.

    Mike Nieto had 20 points and six rebounds to pace the undersized Filipinos, who now need to beat host United Arab Emirates on Saturday to avoid finishing dead last.

    Jollo Go added 17 points for Batang Gilas.
