    The Koreans were sizzling hot on 3 point shot (16 out of 21 3 point shots made). Not only that, they played relentless assists at will wherein Gilas players were not able stopped them. Every error of the Gilas team were made points by the Koreans, average age is 26 and yet they played like pros and seasoned players. The Filipinos can’t do anything really because of their sharp shooting arsenal.
