QUEZON CITY—Southeast Asian basketball domination repeated!

Gilas gave the Philippines its eighth SEABA Men's Championship title after blowing by Indonesia, 97-64, in the virtual championship game at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Thursday night.

Gilas quickly built a 20-point lead in the first quarter and never looked back.

Andray Blatche buried four triples for 21 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, and one steal for Gilas, which completed a 6-0 sweep of the tournament en route to securing a spot in the FIBA Asia Cup and the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers.

Arki Wisnu made 11 markers, one rebound, and four dimes for Indonesia, which settled for the silver.
