Philippines blows lead, loses to Iran in Asian Youth Games

By

MANILA, Philippines—The Philippines lost to Iran, 14-16, in the quarterfinal round of the 2013 Asian Youth Games 3-on-3 in Nanjing, China Wednesday.

The Philippine team, composed of Andrei Caracut, George Isaac Go and Patrick Ramirez, failed to sustain its commanding 9-2 lead as the Iranians showed their poise in the thrilling match to advance into the semifinal stage.

The Philippines will take on the loser between Chinese Taipei and Malaysia in the consolation phase.

The PH team, coached by Nic Jorge, had beaten Indonesia (10-8), Saudi Arabia (14-10) and most recently Maldives (21-10) last Sunday before falling to Iran.

    ah ok..di ba pang barangay na laro and 3×3 dito sa atin? Pang international na pala ito. Still height is might pa rin sa larong ito so no chance pa rin sa mga taga barangay ko ang larong ito. I could just imagine if 6’11″ abg tatlong players na sing bilis ni Lebron James ang kalaban nang 5’11″ natin. Ang mga taga barangay ko 4’11″ lang..he he he.

    I remember na nagmamakaawa ung coach na paglaruin ang mga stars ng UAAP at NCCA ngunit nd pumayag. Yan ang ngyari, pinagdamot nila ung mga players, ni hindi rin nman nakalaro kasi canceled ang UAAP AT NCAA dahil sa bagyo.

      I think it’s 3-on-3 basketball, like what we usually see in streetballs.
