Mac Belo charge Gilas 5.0 past Kazakhstan


Everything seems to fall apart after three-game losing skid, until Mac Belo posted a monstrous performance to rise above expectations.

Big Mac was like a man possessed as he powered Gilas 5.0 against Kazakhstan, 98-86, to get their first win in the 2016 FIBA Asia Challenge Cup in Tehrain, Iran.

Belo was unstoppable with 30 points and 11 boards while Ed Daquioag and Russell Escoto had 17 and 12 points apiece.

Gilas 5.0, despite falling to India, Chinese Taipei and China, needed just at least two wins to advance in the quarterfinals.

The young Filipino squad must win against Jordan on Wednesday.
