MANILA, Philippines—There were no comebacks this time for the Philippines as it took a 72-91 beating from Lebanon Thursday in the 2012 William Jones Cup.

After a stunning conquest of Japan Wednesday, 88-84, Smart Gilas didn’t seem to have gas left in the tank and started to trail by double digits midway the second half.
