Yet another terrific win came TeamPilipinas’ way last night, this time by a more comfortable margin, ending the contest at 82-64. The RP team led by 20 points twice over the host team, with an evidently large Filipino local contingent helping every step of the way by providing much needed noise to counter Taiwan’s home advantage.
Unfortunately, local viewing of the game was cut off to make way for F1 coverage. Here are the last few minutes of the 4th quarter (again from the excellent xeonfire07), just after Taiwan’s Lin CC’s 3 successive 3 point shots chomped down the lead to just 11 points.
Individual and by quarter scores after the jump:
SAN MIGUEL-RP 82 — Caguioa 20, Alapag 15, Hontiveros 9, Helterbrand 9, Yap 8, Williams 6, Raymundo 5, De Ocampo 5, Ritualo 3, Norwood 0, Menk 0.
CHINESE TAIPEI 64 — Lin CC 22, Wu 13, Lin YH 11, Chen 9, Lee HL 6, Chou 3, Lu 0, Lee CY 0, Hsu 0, Yue 0, Tseng 0.
Quarters: 20-16, 40-29, 61-43, 82-64
