The Philippine national men's basketball team cruised to their second straight victory in the 27th Southeast Asian Games after blowing out Cambodia, 107-57, on Tuesday at the Zeya-thiri Stadium in Naypyidaw, Myanmar.

Mac Belo and Ronald Pascual led six Filipino players in double-figures in what was an easy assignment for the Philippines.

Belo had 17 points while Pascual had 16 to pace the Philippines while Garvo Lanete (12), Kiefer Ravena (12), Jericho Cruz (10) and Bobby Ray Parks (10) all chipped in for the cause.

After struggling to start their game against Singapore, the Filipinos had it much easier in this one, jumping out to a 25-16 first quarter lead after a 14-5 run to close the period.

In the second, Kevin Ferrer sparked another big run for the Philippines when he hit back-to-back three-pointers that kickstarted a 14-1 run.

They entered the halftime break with a 44-25 lead. Pascual scored 13 of his 16 in the first half and eight in the first period alone.
