JAKARTA — Aside from taking a well-deserved day-off to relax before they prepare for the tough battles ahead, Gilas Pilipinas also spent time supporting other Philippine teams in the 2018 Asian Games

Several players and members of the coaching staff of the Philippine basketball team stayed at the stands to show their support for the RP Blu Girls women’s softball team at the GBK Softball field.

Unfortunately, the Blu Girls lost a close one, bowing to Chinese Taipei, 3-2. Despite the loss, the Blu Girls still has a shot at a gold medal, with the softbelles facing the Taiwanese again in the page-system semifinals with the winner assured of at least a bronze medal.

Following their grueling match against China on Tuesday, head coach Yeng Guiao gave his players a day-off to rest their bodies before they begin their preparation for the game against Korea in the quarterfinal round on Thursday.
