Despite trailing for most of the game and facing a daunting 20-point deficit in the third quarter, the turning point came when Justin Brownlee made a three-pointer with just 24 seconds remaining on the clock. This shot not only gave the Gilas team their first lead of the game but also ultimately secured their victory.

In the upcoming Final match, the Philippines will be pitted against Jordan, who secured a convincing 90-71 win against Chinese Taipei in the other semi-final. Notably, Jordan had previously defeated the Gilas team in the tournament with a score of 87-62.

The final showdown is scheduled to take place at 8 pm local time on Friday, October 6th. Meanwhile, the bronze medal match between the People's Republic of China and Chinese Taipei is set for 4PM.
