Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes praised the Filipino supporters that traveled to Jeddah’s King Abdullah Sports City to cheer on their team during their FIBA World Cup Qualifiers game against Saudi Arabia.

The game was played at the venue.

The Gilas fans were more loud, especially when the 76-63 victory was formalized as if it had taken place in the Philippines, despite the fact that Saudi Arabia is the country that is officially hosting the match on Monday am (Philippine Time).

“I believe that the crowd provided a lot of the energy that we needed. They were a tremendous help to us in many ways “The comment was made by Reyes after the game.

After forcing a 16-16 draw at the end of the first quarter, Saudi Arabia appeared to be on the verge of pulling off a major shock early on.

Gilas, on the other hand, slowly pounced on the hosts with the support of their chanting fans, particularly in the second half when they started to finally make their shots.

According to what Reyes had to say about the situation, “They just wouldn’t allow us to lose until we reached our stride and finally hit some shots in the third quarter.”

After limiting Saudi Arabia to just nine points in the second quarter, Gilas took a 31-25 lead into the halftime break to set the stage for the rest of the game.

Reyes continued by saying that “we were able to use our defense basically to pull off the victory.”

Gilas won the fifth window and improved to 5-3 in Group E competition thanks to the combined efforts of RR Pogoy and Dwight Ramos, who each scored 13 points for his team.

With 19 points, eight rebounds, one steal, and one block, Mathna Al-Marwani was the leading scorer for Saudi Arabia, even though the team’s record fell to 2-6.
