Big performance to Justin Brownlee finishes with 41 points for the Philippines. Team Philippines ends this Window 6 with a 1-1 record and is on its way to the 2023 FIBA World Cup.
Two free throws missed in the remaining seconds of Gilas Pilipinas’ game against Jordan in the sixth window of the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers on February 27 was a learning experience for Scottie Thompson.
“I’m gonna learn from this. Sobrang dami kong nabigo na mga Pilipino so masakit for me but I think ito ‘yung pinaka-best na ni-remind sa akin na I have to get better,” said Thompson.
