MANILA—Gilas Youth's girls team began their quest for promotion to Division A of the FIBA U16 Women's Asian Championship on a strong note with a 79-40 rout of Hong Kong at the start of their Division B campaign early Tuesday (Philippine Time) at the Prince Hamza Hall in Amman, Jordan.

Gilas Youth pounced on its error-prone opponent, forcing 34 turnovers in total, en route to the wire-to-wire win.
