SEABA: Myanmar Stuck at 40 as Philippines Quickly Dominated First Game at 147 Points

It was a home crowd glory, with lots of cheering and screaming in every shot. Gilas Pilipinas left the Myanmar team with only 40 points all through out the game in today's kick-off of SEABA 2017.

Everyone knew how well it's going to be, with the starting line-up of the Philippine Team ranging from a former NBA player, Andray Blatche, big guy June Mar Fajardo, Jayson Castro, Allein Malicsi amd Roger Pogoy. It was quite a battle for the Myanmar Team. Jayson Castro started off the game scoring for Gilas right away. Andray Blatche became the foundation of the team in the first quarter assisting fellow teammates with their three-point shooting, lay-ups and rebounds. Finishing the first quarter with a wide gap against Myanmar, 32 over 7.

Myanmar didn't manage to erase the point deficit of the team in the succeding quarters with Japeth Aguilar, Terrence Romeo, Mathhew Wright and Troy Rosario entering the ball game. The height of the opponent is a huge factor for the players to continuously miss shots. They managed to chip in only 5 points in the second quarter while Gilas is continuing to widen the gap, 66 points by the end of second quarter. The gap is getting more farther and farther for Myanmar to reach with Philippines reaching a hundred points in the last quarter of the game. Final score 147-40.
