South Korea defeated Uzbekistan in the Asian Games quarter final in Indonesia

They couldn't mask their frustrations.

"It's still a tough job as everybody thinks it is, but we're ready for the Korea game", Guiao declared in an interview with this writer on the eve of the crucial match on Sunday.

After an excellent debut for the Philippines in the 2018 Asian Games, Clarkson continued to turn heads in his second appearance, attacking the South Korea defense with ferocity and keeping his team in the game.

The Filipinos gave their long-time rivals everything they could handle until the fourth quarter, where Korea, unbothered by mediocre shooting in the first 3 quarters, began to find its range as it seems to always do.

"We must stick to our game plan in order to guard him (Clarkson)", said Hur Jae, now 53, and best remembered as a player who epitomizes the Korea's trademark outside shooting that stretches back to the time of Shin Dong Pa in the 1960s and Lee Chung-Hee in the 1980s.

The Philippines will go up next against the victor between Syria and Indonesia for a shot at fifth place - a better ranking than its worst finish at seventh in the 2014 edition in Incheon.

With a barrage of threes, he kept the Philippines in the game against South Korea throughout the third quarter as they lost their lead, though Gilas would eventually fall short 91-82. And if they did get it, they were simply missing it. Five straight points by Standhardinger, who has been superb in these Games so far, gave the Philippines their largest lead at 103-78 with just 3:25 to go, putting the result beyond doubt. "Again, I take full responsibility". It's a bad clip considering the way it shot in its first three games in the classification round, but it came at a time when the Koreans had to make them. They are scheduled to play Iran in the evening session.
