Gilas Pilipinas beat Singapore, 68-60, to advance to the gold-medal match in the 29th Southeast Asian Games basketball competitions at the MABA Stadium on August 25.

Troy Rosario lead the team with 14 points and 10 rebounds, but it was Standhardinger and Tolomia who combined in a critical 7-0 run that turned a 53-48 lead into a more comfortable 60-48 spread.

Russel Low Wenqiang, who was not in the Singapore lineup during the Seaba Championship in Manila, led the comeback and finished with 14 points.

Gilas is gunning for the Philippines' 18th basketball gold medal and faces Indonesia on Saturday, August 26.
