KUALA LUMPUR – Thai naturalized player Tyler Lamb is aching for a rematch with Team Philippines.

“That’s my goal. That’s our goal to get to the championship and bring home the gold in Thailand,” said the Ontario, California native, who played college ball with the UCLA then with Long Beach State.

“We’re looking at our first ever gold in basketball. That would mean everything to me. That’s our goal. That’s our team is working towards,” he added.

He’s aching for another shot versus the Filipinos especially as he missed the homestretch of their well-fought match Sunday after fouling out with over four minutes left to play.
