New Zealand, which led by as many as 16 in the third quarter, tried to stay in the game from the stripe, but Gilas Pilipinas fended off all attempts to snatch the victory.

Jayson Castro towed the Filipinos, who missed the services of national team rookie Terrence Romeo, back into contention with his heroics in the fourth quarter.
