E-Gilas Pilipinas suffered a brutal 70-53 loss against the Australia E-Boomers, to open its Southeast Asian Conference title retention bid in the FIBA Esports Open II, Saturday night.

Up by just three in the third quarter, 39-36, Australia put on 10 straight points to end the salvo via two dunks by Squogs and back-to-back triples from Waurk to stretch its lead to 10 heading into the payoff period, 49-36.

Then the E-Boomers continued to pound the Playbook Laus Esports-powered E-Gilas in the fourth quarter to reach their largest lead in the game at 21, from a CQOPR trey with 39.2 ticks left in the game.

The full-court defense of the E-Boomers was in full effect the whole match, resulting in shotclock violations for the Philippines.

The two-man game of point guard Waurk and big man Squogs proved to be the biggest difference, providing 26 and 22 points, respectively for Australia.
