The Philippines won the tie 127-68 leaving Cambodia to seek for an outright win over neighbors Thailand who defeated Vietnam in the first game on Monday 85-54.

" we knew Philippines will be a problem, We have always struggled against them so we now have to win our next two games to give us a chance of going into the next round" Coach Austin Koledoye said.

The trio of Pek Mith, Sop Oeun and Boroth Thach will have to be at their best to contend the Thais who have about 6 players who are above 6feet tall.
