SMC-RP off to a bad start in FIBA-Asia

The national team of Iran defeated San Miguel Pilipinas 75-69 in the opening of the FIBA-Asia.


Team Philippines struggled throughout the game losing six key players in the run. Dondon Hontiveros was ejected for an unsportsmanship foul, Mark Caguioa and Gabe Norwood fouled out, and Asi Taulava, Danny Seigle and Jimmy Alapag for injuries. Aside from that, a referee called a technical at the Philippine bench giving the other team the advantage.


It was a rough start for team Philippines and in order to get through this tournament they must win in the succeeding matches against China and Jordan.
