Gilas Pilipinas Women bowed to China at the close of the pool phase of the 2024 FIBA 3×3 Women’s Series – Wuhan Stop, losing 21-13, for a 1-2 record on Saturday at Hubei Province Olympic Sports Center in China.

In a crucial game against the host to close out pool play, China’s Wan Jiyuan proved to be too much for the Filipinas.

Hazel Yam then took charge against the Taiwanese.

With Gilas down 18-16, Yam scored three straight points to gain the lead before Pingol finished things off with 46 seconds remaining.
