Sinag Pilipinas Assured Of Gold In SEA Games 2013

Sinag Pilipinas, the national basketball team of the Philippines, is now guaranteed of a gold medal in the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games 2013 in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.

The Filipino ballers are yet to face the Malaysian team on Sunday, but whether they will win or lose the game, they will still rank first in the standings and hence, assured of gold.

With a 5-0 record, Sinag Pilipinas is currently number 1 in the standings, followed by Thailand (4-1) and Malaysia (3-2). Even if the Thai team will defeat the Myanmar hoopsters on Monday and equal the record of the Philippine troupe, Sinag Pilipinas will still be given the gold by virtue of the winner-over-the-other rule.

The Philippine team beat their Thai foes, 100-68, on Friday.

Therefore, Sinag Pilipinas' game against the Malaysian team on Sunday will just be a mere formality.
