    Jun 27, 2019

    GILAS Pilipinas Youth is off to Greece for the 2019 Fiba Under-19 World Cup after sweeping Al Rayyan in a two-game series in Doha.

    The national youth team left the bustling Qatari capital on Thursday, with head coach Sandy Arespacochaga expressing confidence with the squad's chances in the global youth hoops tilt.

    AJ Edu and Dalph Panopio led Gilas Youth to another dominant 93-64 win over Al Rayyan on Wednesday (Manila time) in the team's final tuneup game before heading to Heraklion for the World Cup.

      Nazareth School of National University big man Carl Tamayo also added 11 points in the rout.
