Kiefer Ravena helped spark Gilas Pilipinas’ rally as the Philippine national team defended home court against Chinese Taipei in the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers.

MANILA, Philippines — It took them three quarters to figure it out but Gilas Pilipinas made sure home court is defended well.

The Philippines used another brave fourth-quarter stand to score a second straight victory in the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers, this time a 90-83 decision over Chinese Taipei Monday at the Araneta Coliseum.

Holding on to a one-point lead entering the final 10 minutes of play, Jayson Castro ran the Gilas offense to near perfection in the payoff period as the Philippines survived a strong challenge from the visiting Taiwanese.
