While South Korea is in second place. As for Thailand itself is still the caretaker of the group with four points.
Fahreza Tamrella also reminded the Indonesian national team coach to evaluate the team's performance ahead of the match against Thailand. This must be done considering that the match against the host Philippines did not look impressive so they lost 51-76.
One of the things that stood out when facing Filipian was rebound. According to Fahreza, The Indonesian national team has conceded too many balls.
“Difference 27 rebound It is very important for the national team to evaluate the next game against Thailand,” said the man who was familiarly called Mocha.
Against the Philippines, Arki Dikania Wisnu and friends actually performed quite well in the first half especially in defense. However, in a way offense, accuracy is not so good that the national team lags behind 8 first half points.
