South Korea might be the lightest based on bracket assessment but that doesn’t mean an automatic nor an easy win for Coach Chot Reyes and his team. Philippines has already faced South Korea plenty of times in international competitions, and they are not easy to play against.
Per FIBA.com, Korea’s Hur Jae has coached against the Philippines three times in FIBA Asia Cup play, winning all three. That is certainly not lost on Philippines head coach Chot Reyes, who is aiming for the Filipinos’ fourth straight entry to the FIBA Asia Cup Semi-Finals.
Based on statistics, the Philippines make the highest number of triples per game here, sinking 12.3 three-pointers on average, while Korea are not far behind with 9 triples per contest.
Do you think Gilas Pilipinas will win match-up against Korea? Will they get the precious gold medal and top honor to represent Asia in the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup?
