Almond Vosotros torched Indonesia, carrying Gilas Pilipinas Men to the main draw of the 2022 FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup after a 21-15 (5:58) victory, Thursday in Singapore.

“We are playing for the country so I told them to do their best,” said Vosotros. “We are just focusing on the game, taking things one game at a time”

Joseph Eriobu, meanwhile, scored six of his eight points in the first three minutes of the game.

Indonesia, who defeated Jordan earlier in the day, was led by the 11 points of Sandy Aziz.
