FIBA QT in Manilla: New Zealand break Philippine hearts - Jul 6, 2016

Abercrombie
New Zealand withstood every rally that Philippines mounted and came out victorious, 89-80, on the second day of the 2016 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Manila. The Tall Blacks led nearly wire to wire and eliminated Gilas Pilipinas from Olympic contention.

Turning Point: The hosts managed to trim what once was a 13-point deficit to just a solitary point, 60-59, early in the fourth quarter, but that's when New Zealand, behind the efforts of Thomas Abercrombie (198-F/G-87, college: Washington St., agency: Priority Sports), Isaac Fotu (203-F-93, college: Hawaii) and the Webster brothers conspired to deliver a big finishing kick. The Kiwis outscored the Filipinos, 29-21 the rest of the way to notch their first win of the OQT.

Stats Don't Lie: Unlike last night against France, the Philippines just couldn't find their rhythm in this game. They managed to make just 41% of their field goals compared to 48% for New Zealand. Gilas made 11 three-pointers here, but it was offset by their 14 turnovers.

Game Hero: Corey Webster (188-G-88, college: Lambuth) was the marked man for the Kiwis heading into this game, but it was his younger brother Tai who stole the show. The younger Webster scored 25 points on top of 11 rebounds and 3 assists and to lead the Tall Blacks. He also made all but one of his 11 free throws.

The Bottom Line: New Zealand couldn't have asked for a better start, and they will go into their pivotal match with France tomorrow full of confidence. The winner of that feud enters the Semi-Finals as the top seed of Group B. The hosts, meanwhile, just kissed their Olympic hopes goodbye and will go back to the drawing board for the FIBA Asia Challenge later this year.
