    The TNT Tropang Giga gunner drilled five deuces for his game-high 11 points, including the winner with 4:00 left to push the Philippines to the final 12 and send the enthusiastic Pinoy crowd happy.

    "We're so happy and blessed na lahat ng kababayan na Pilipino nandyan," he said on the heels of sweeping Group C of the qualifying draw.

    Joseph Eriobu kept Gilas afloat early on, scoring eight of the first 10 points as the Filipinos seized the early lead.
