Leaving a path of decimation during the three-game elims, the powerhouse Philippine group continued beating and passed up the semi rival Indonesia, 97-70, to snatch its normal spot in the Southeast Asian Games men's b-ball finale.

The Nationals released their strength in a burning second from last quarter attack, 39-17, to remove the battle from the Rajko Toroman-trained Indons and move a success away from piling on the nation's thirteenth sequential enclosure title in the biennial meet.

Christian Standhardinger (14 points), Matthew Wright (13 markers and eight help), Vic Manuel (12 point) and Chris Ross (11-5-6) took the bludgeons for the unbeaten home side, which safeguards its SEA Games crown this evening against Thailand.
