Gilas Men’s team ends FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup campaign with win over Samoa

RJ Abarrientos caught fire just in the nick of time to power the Gilas Men’s team to a 21-15 win over Samoa and end their 2019 FIBA 3X3 Asia Cup campaign on a bright note, Thursday in Changsha, China.

The sweet-shooting guard out of FEU torched the opponents with 14 points to give his team a 10-4 lead.

Theodore McFarland took charge and brought Samoa to within 2, 13-11, before Rhayyan Amsali uncorked 4 straight points to give the Philippine team some breathing room.

Abarrientos then applied the finishing touches with a long two-pointer to put the game away for good.

Amsali finished with 6 points while Barkley Ebona contributed 2.

The Philippines, thus, ended the tournament with back-to-back wins to finish with a 2-2 card but it wasn’t enough to give the team a spot in the quarterfinals.

The scores:

Philippines 22 – Abarrientos 14, Amsali 6, Ebona 2.

Samoa 15 – McFarland 5, Levy 5, Paia 3, Tufuga 2.
