The first time that our Gilas Pilipinas met the Aussies was a devastating one, as they were totally defeated by the Australians, 84 to 68. But, just recently, the Japanese just pulled out a big win against this squad. It only means that Australia is beatable even though they are a powerhouse them because their main guns are all dedicated to their NBA teams as of now. Though Matthew Dellavedova and Thon Maker were already in the lineup, there is a certain issue in the chemistry even though their coach Andrej Lemanis denied it.
Hopefully our Gilas will be able to win this one and give them a big morale boost entering the 2ND round of the Asian Qualifiers this coming September 2018. A win will make our team the #1 seeded team entering the 4th window. Now see the lineup below for our Gilas Pilipinas against Australia.
