KUALA LUMPUR — Perlas Pilipinas shone bright Sunday night.

True to its moniker, the Philippine women’s basketball team fashioned out a 88-54 demolition of Singapore to start its bid for the 29th Southeast Asian Games crown at full-packed MABA Stadium here.

Displaying fluid transition offense through flashy playmaker France Mae Cabinbin, the Philippines kept the tentative Singaporean side under control in the first half, with just about everybody in the lineup scoring at will.

Perlas stepped on it in the final two quarters with Cabinbin, Afril Bernardino and Analyn Almazan leading the charge to rip the game apart and cruise to its first victory of the meet.
