  Philippines continued to remain undefeated after beating Malaysia 104-42 on Wednesday (April 29) in the Southeast Asian Basketball Championship (SEABA) at the OCBC Arena in Singapore.

Similar to the previous two games, the Gilas Cadets hit the ground running and set the tone early behind Kiefer Ravena and Bobby Ray Parks who combined for 17 points in the first quarter to give the Philippines a 23-14 lead.

The Cadets took a commanding 57-29 into the break, shooting at 51.3-percent from the field while holding their Malaysian counterparts to only 37.1-percent.

At the start of the third quarter, Malaysia got to the line more often but the Filipinos continued to press on.

The Gilas Cadets extended their advantage to 79-35 after limiting their opponents to only six points in the third quarter.

It was the same story in the fourth quarter as Philippines notched their third straight win of the tournament.
