Roldan Sara, the diminutive speedster from Cagayan de Oro, made 5 steals including back to back steals in the final quarter as Team Pilipinas beat a stubborn Iraq squad, 68-59 in the FIBA-Asia U-18 Basketball Championships in Sana’a, Yemen.

Top gun Keifer Ravena topscored with 23 points but the Philippines’ aweful shooting (38%) allowed the game Iraqis to keep the game close.

Sara, who’s a freshman at Dela Salle University, will suit up for the Green Archers next year. He was recuited from CDO to play high school ball at San Beda.
