FIBA 3×3: Mikka Cacho leads Gilas Women to 2-0 slate in QD ahead of Kazakhstan clash


Gilas Pilipinas Women 3×3 swept their first two assignments in the qualifying draw of the 2024 FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup on Wednesday at the Singapore Sports Hub, OCBC Square.

The Philippines ripped Tahiti to open the day, winning 21-3 (9:38), before defeating the Maldives 19-11.

This sets up a win-or-go-home clash against Kazakhstan on Thursday at 12:20 p.m., with the winner advancing to Pool C alongside Malaysia and Mongolia.

Kazakhstan also emerged victorious against Maldives and Tahiti, winning 17-11 and 14-10, respectively, earlier in the day.

Jhazmin Joson caught fire for Gilas against Tahiti, scoring 10 points on four deuces — including the game-winner with 22 seconds left.

However, it was Mikka Cacho who remained consistent in both games, dropping a total of 15 points in the two outings.

Against the Maldives, the country’s top-ranked player Kaye Pingol also contributed eight markers — the same output as Cacho.

The Scores:

First Game:
Philippines 21 – Joson 10, Cacho 7, Pingol 3, Clarin 1.
Tahiti 3 – Teissier H. 1, Viriamu 1, Teissier P. 1, Lextreyt 0.
Time: Joson 2 (9:38)

Second Game:
Philippines 19 – Cacho 8, Pingol 8, Clarin 2, Joson 1.
Maldives 11 – Inasha 4, Athif 4, Rishma 3, Ali 0.
