Gilas Pilipinas was indeed very determined to win its last game in the FIBA World Cup 2014 even if they're no longer qualified for the Round of 16.

Of course, they want to come home at least with a victory, than being one of the biggest losers of the tournament.

For Senegal, winning or losing the game no longer mattered as they're already assured with a slot in the next round, even if Puerto Rico wins vs Croatia later. But still, they didn't give the Filipino team an easy win even at the last second.

Senegal - 19 pts, 5 pts, 10 pts, 20 pts, 15 pts OT

It was the Philippines' 1st FIBA World Cup win after 40 years. That's a big achievement, even if they failed to advance to the next round. -
