The battle of Philippines’ Gilas Pilipinas vs Australia will take place on Monday, July 2, 2018, in the Philippines.
After suffering a loss in February, there was no stopping the Philippines in the first round of the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers, and now Gilas Pilipinas is on to their last game, a rematch, against Australian Boomers.
The two teams will meet at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan, Monday. The game is scheduled to tip off at approximately 7:30 p.m. Philippine Standard Time, and it can be live-streamed online (details below).
Both teams rolled to a 4-1 records in Group B. The Boomers moved on to their last game in the first round after suffering a loss to Japan last Friday, June 29 while Gilas Pilipinas overcame a slow start and determined, hot shooting Chinese Taipei squad, 93-71, last June 29 in its third window matchup of the FIBA Basketball World Cup qualifiers at the Taipei Heping Basketball Gymnasium.
The Philippines has the kind of balanced scoring and defensive intensity that is going to make the team tough to beat in the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers throughout the rest of the tournament.
Both teams have already earned a spot in the second round of the Asian Qualifiers, so this next game is simply to add to their points total, which carry over.
They are two of 12 teams who’ll play in the second round of qualifiers. The 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup qualification (Asia) process will determine the 7 teams from FIBA Asia and/or FIBA Oceania that will participate at the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup.
Gilas Pilipinas and Australian Boomers face off at 7:30 p.m. live on TV5. The event will also be live streamed online at Sports5.
