MANILA, Philippines – The action intensified during the opening minutes of the fourth quarter between Gilas Pilipinas and Turkey on Friday, July 1.
Following a physical play, Gilas big man Marc Pingris got in the face of Turkey center Omer Asik, leading to both men exchanging worlds and receiving technical fouls.
Asik also was called for his fifth foul of the game, which meant a disqualification in international rules. As he left the floor to go to the bench, Pingris waved the Turkish big man good-bye.
