By Ivan Saldajeno

QUEZON CITY—Jamarr Johnson and Arki Wisnu provided Indonesia some scoring help in a 123-50 blowout of Myanmar in the SEABA Men's Championship at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Wednesday.

Johnson and Wisnu finally got to play in the tournament after receiving the clearance from FIBA needed for their eligibility for the Indonesian team.

Johnson tallied 17 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, and one block, while Wisnu had seven points of his own, making all of his three shots for Indonesia, which led for all but three seconds of the game.

Abraham Grahita led Indonesia, which will face Gilas in what would become the championship game of the tournament on Thursday night, with 19 points.

Aung Wana chalked up 16 markers for Myanmar, which dropped to 0-5.
