Philippines clobbered by Lebanon in Jones Cup
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.
It was the Philippines first loss of the tournament after four straight victories, losing its first place tie with Iran.
