The winner will have the relatively easier path in the knockout playoffs as it will take on the Group C’s No. 3 seed, which will be the winner of Saturday’s game between Kazakhstan and Syria.

The loser, however, will be relegated to No. 3 spot in Group D and will face either Japan and Iran with the two being at their best in the continental tilt. They face off on Saturday, with the winner advancing outright to the quarterfinals and the loser sliding to the No. 2 seed in Group C.

Led by naturalized Filipino Andray Blatche, Gilas put up a strong fight in the 2016 Fiba Olympic Qualifying Tournament before falling, 89-80.

Worse was the Filipinos’ performance in the first round of the 2023 Fiba World Cup Asian qualifiers as they found themselves on the losing end of their duels.
