Philippines splits first two games in Fiba 3X3 Worlds
The Philippines split their first two matches in the group stages of the Fiba 3X3 Under-18 World Championship as they won over hosts Hungary in the second game after dropping their debut against Poland, Thursday.
UCLA-bound Kobe Paras led the Filipinos with 15 points in their 19-18 win over Hungary.
Paras put it upon himself after they lost to Poland, 15-13, venting his frustrations on Twitter.
“This 1st game was my fault. Sorry to all the people who are supporting us. I’ve made too much mistakes. We will definitely bounce back!”
Other members of the Philippine team are Michael Nieto, Richard Escoto, and Ricci Rivero. They are coached by John Flores. IDL
