Perlas Pilipinas gave itself a chance early, but faded as the game went on en route to a 91-63 loss to South Korea in the 2017 Fiba Women’s Asia Cup Tuesday night at Sree Kanteerava Indoor Stadium in Bangalore, India.

The Filipinos stayed in step with the South Koreans as they entered the second quarter knotted at 19, but it was a different story the rest of the way.

South Korea outscored PH, 51-28, in the middle quarters to cruise to its first victory in the group stages.


The Philippines, which played in its first Division A tournament, dropped to 0-3 in Group B after lopsided losses to defending champion Japan and powerhouse Australia in its first two outings.

After a winless opening round, Perlas got heavyweight China as its quarterfinals foe on Thursday.

Allana Lim finished with 14 points and six rebounds for Perlas, which shot just 30% from the field and was out-rebounded, 65-41.

South Korea had five players in double-figures led by Kim Danbi’s 19 points.
