Iran basketball team trounces India in 2017 FIBA Asia Cup

Gilas, Iraq battle for Group B lead Gilas Pilipinas vs Iraq FIBA Cup 2017 schedule: start time, tv channel, preview

After stunning defending champion China on Wednesday, Gilas Pilipinas shoots for its second straight victory as it clashes with Iraq today in the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Asia Cup at the Beirut Nouhad Nawfal Sports Complex in Beirut, Lebanon.

But Philippines, inspired by 26-point Terrence Romeo, ended the game on a 12-0 run to hand China - ranked 14th in the world - a first defeat in the tournament since Chinese Taipei beat them in the quarter-finals in 2013.

Leaving everything on the floor, Gilas Pilipinas made the country proud by surprisingly controlling most part of the game with an early double-digit lead and by standing its ground when it mattered the most - during winning time. And while China was down names like Yi Jianlian and Zhou Qi for Wednesday's affair, Gilas Pilipinas had to go without June Mar Fajardo.

Only the No.1 teams from the four groups are guaranteed to make it to the quarterfinals. Romeo looked strong as expected for Gilas Pilipinas against China, and Jayson William dropped 13 points of his own.

He said they had to leave by 1 September, bringing staff levels to 455, the same as Russia's complement in Washington. The US State Department responded to Moscow's move last month, saying that it was an " uncalled-for act ".

However, unlike the Jones Cup squad, this Iraq team will feature a different naturalized player in Kevin Galloway instead of DeMario Mayfield. Calvin Abueva, though, didn't look like his past self on the worldwide stage, only scoring two points before getting ejected for tossing a headbutt at an opponent.

He played the entire 40 minutes, scoring 16 points, grabbing eight boards and providing three assists.

Romeo scored the next eight points, two long triples and a tough fadeaway jumper, and that was the game right there. They will play together at certain time of the game against Iraq. Abdulraham Saad impressed for Qatar, dropping 23 points, but his did not lead at any point after the third quarter.

Scores and results of Gilas Pilipinas vs Iraq will be posted here.
