No mercy: White-hot Gilas cadets bludgeon Brunei



The Gilas cadets showed no mercy whatsoever in a masterful dispatching of the lowly Brunei team, 140-29, Thursday in the 2015 SEABA Championship at the OCBC Arena in Singapore.

A 15-0 run in the opening period was all the Philippine side needed to breakaway in a rout which saw the team shoot 73.3 percent from the field and 56.3 percent from three-point territory.

The Gilas cadets never went threatened and then poured a mighty 37-0 juggernaut in the third quarter, holding Brunei scoreless for almost the entire period before a triple by Mohd Jamri Ramlee inside the last minute of the third frame prevented a total shut-out.

Seven players finished in double digits for the Philippines. Kevin Ferrer was on target from downtown, firing 18 points on 6-for-7 triples. Ray Parks led all scorers with 19 points on 9-for-10 field goals.

Jio Jalalon and Scottie Thompson meanwhile combined for 22 of the team’s 36 assists. Almond Vosotros and Norbert Torres committed 11 of Gilas’ 26 steals.

Brunei in contrast shot an atrocious 13-for-52 from the field and only had 7 rebounds in the entire outing.

Marcus Douthit once again enjoyed a break before the Philippines rounds out its campaign against host squad Sinapore tomorrow night.

The scores:

Philippines (140) – Parks 19, Escoto 18, Ferrer 18, Rosario 17, Vosotros 14, Torres 14, Thompson 11, Ravena 9, Jalalon 8, Belo 6, Khobuntin 6.

Brunei (29) – Ching 9, HJ Hussin 8, Liew 4, Ramlee 4, Chong 2, Lim 2, Soon 0.
