    PH Team braces for vengeful Thai club in bid to salvage fifth place finish in Champions Cup

    Sep 29, 2017

    THE Philippine team hopes to come home with heads held high as they face a vengeful Mono Vampire Thailand squad in the battle for fifth place on the last day of the FIBA Asia Champions Cup.

    The match starts at 12:15 p.m. at the Chenzhou Sports Center on Saturday.

    On a high following a commanding 92-57 win over Shabab Al Ahli-Dubai, the Chooks-To-Go bannered team is looking to sweep the Thailand club to salvage its campaign in the China showpiece with a fifth place finish.

    To do so, the Philippine team hopes for a repeat of its superb shooting, after dropping 14 triples on the way to a 115-102 victory in its first clash with the Thais.


      Carl Cruz made eight treys for team-high 28 points, while Isaiah Austin posted a double-double of 27 points and 19 rebounds and Kiefer Ravena added 24 markers.

      Chooks will need to play the same way if they are to beat a Thailand side reinforced by former PBA import Michael Singletary and Fil-Am Jason Brickman, who are raring for payback against a rival in the region.

      Singletary paced Thailand with 32 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, and two steals in that match and expect the high-octane to come out with fire in his eyes as he looks to avenge their loss to Chooks in the group stages.
