FLASH REVIEW – In its quest to reclaim the basketball gold at the Southeast Asian Games, GILAS Pilipinas encountered a significant barrier on Thursday when it lost to host Cambodia in Elephant Hall 2 of the Morodok Techo National Stadium by a humiliating score of 79 to 68.

The Cambodian team, which defeated the Filipinos and handed them their first setback of the competition, outscored them by as many as 21 points. The Cambodian team was led by six players who had gained naturalized citizenship.

The Cambodians defeated the Filipinos in basketball for the first time ever in the Southeast Asian Games.
