On Wednesday, however, Gilas had bowed against Iran with the score 68-63. Iran had given they quiet a pounding on their defense starting on the first minute of the game until the last. Gilas did not give up and kept of giving Iran a hard time. Iran players had been visibly exhausted as they chase around the swift and nimble Filipinos.
Since Gilas had sadly lost the unbearing game, they would be in Group H of the competition together with South Korea, Kazakhstan, and their next opponent, Qatar. Qatar won in their first two games scoring 79-69 against Kuwait and 72-71 defeating Japan.
