Gilas Women’s team falls to Australia in FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup quarterfinals

The Gilas Pilipinas Women’s 3X3 team fought tooth and nail against their much taller counterparts from Australia but could not contain the hot-shooting of Alice Kunek as they bowed out of contention following their 16-21 loss at the hands of the Aussies in the quarterfinal round of the 2019 FIBA 3X3 Asia Cup, Sunday afternoon in Changsha, China.

The Filipinas were still on top, 4-1, before Kunek started to wax hot from all angles.

Claire Castro brought the Philippines to within 1, 15-16, but Kunek came through with a two-pointer and then followed it up with a two-point play to put some distance between the two teams.

Kunek finished with 13 points while Rebecca Cole contributed four.

Janine Pontejos led the Philippine side with 8 points, all from long distance, while Afril Bernardino and Jack Animam added five and two, respectively

The scores:

Australia 21 – Kunek 13, Cole 4, Garrick 2, Zavecz 2.

Philippines 16 – Pontejos 8, Bernardino 5, Animam 2, Castro 1.
