The Philippine Star
JAKARTA – The country’s amateur cagers proved more than enough to get the job done in winning the SEA Games men’s championship, routing Thailand, 85-57, last night to complete their golden mission here.
Sinag Pilipinas, a mix of collegiate stars and PBA D-League mainstays, just won’t let the gold medal that mattered most slip away, posting an unassailable lead right in the first half en route to scoring another blowout win to cap a masterful five-game sweep.
“This means a lot to us, not just for me but the whole team. We’re very happy to win the gold and make the country proud,” said Sinag Phl coach Norman Black.
Up next for the Blue Eagles: their title defense in the ongoing Philippine Collegiate Champions League.
