Perlas Pilipinas needed only the first few minutes of the game to put Myanmar away en route to a 123-33 win in the 2017 Southeast Asian Games women’s basketball tournament Tuesday at MABA Stadium in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Filipinos, who raced to a 33-8 lead at the end of the opening period, had six players in double-digit scoring with Clare Castro leading the way.

The 6-foot-4 Castro out of Far Eastern University posted a double-double with 21 points and 12 rebounds with four blocks to boot.
