Lithuania latest to challenge Gilas Pilipinas in Jones Cup
Entering day 7 with a 4-2 record, the Philippines takes on another tough one as the national team goes head-to-head against Lithuania.

Whether or not Gilas Pilipinas ends up with a medal in the Jones Cup will probably depend on Friday's game result.

Entering day 7 with a 4-2 record, the Philippines takes on another tough one as the national team goes head-to-head against Lithuania.

Trailing the tournament leaders by at least one full game, Gilas is almost in a must-win situation if it wants to compete for a podium finish as the Taipei invitational nears its climax.

After absorbing a sorry loss to rival South Korea, Gilas got right back on track and beat a pesky Iraq squad Thursday, setting up its bout against Lithuania, a traditional European powerhouse.

The Philippines-Lithuania mathcup is set for 3:00 p.m. live from Taipei.
