    Quiambao steps up as Gilas dumps Turkmenistan to reach 3x3 U18 Asia Cup quarters

    Aug 23, 2019

    KEVIN Quiambao and Terrence Fortea came up big for Gilas Pilipinas Mens as the duo drubbed Turkmenistan, 21-16 and earn the top seed in Pool C of the 2019 Fiba 3x3 U-18 Asia Cup Friday in Cyberjaya, Malaysia.

    The 6-foot-6 Quiambao bullied his way down low and allowed the Philippines grab an early 5-0 lead, but Yevgeniy Nazipov pulled his side back in the game as the Turkmenistanis tied the game at 11.

    The sweet-shooting Fortea followed suit, allowing the Filipinos to pull away before icing the game with a pair of freebies with 2:43 remaining.

    Fortea pumped 11 points in the win, while Quiambao got eight points.

    Gerry Abadiano completed the trio with a pair, as Carl Tamayo once again sat out the match.

    The Philippines will progress to the quarterfinals, where top-seed China awaits on Saturday at 3:40 p.m.

    Nazipov and Ysmayyl Arazmammedov both scored seven in a losing cause.
