YANGON, Myanmar (7th SEABA U18 Championship): Monday was a memorable day in Myanmars basketball history. First came the momentous Opening Ceremony to the 7th SEABA U18 Championship the first official FIBA Asia competition on Myanmarese soil. And closely on the heels of that colorful ceremony came the home teams first win on their soil.

Myanmar, coached by Australian Gregory Noel, playing their first game in front of a supportive home crowd defeated Laos 70-62 in Over Time.

In other games in this six-team single pool competition, Philippines scored over Malaysia 87-59 and Singapore defeated Thailand 47-39.

Myanmar trailed Laos for the better of their game. But a flurry of activity in their offense in the last five minutes of the game helped the hosts tie the game at 59 and stretch it to Over Time.

Wai Lu and Nay Myo Min were the toast of the home crowd in Over Time.

The former started the scoring for the hosts in the extended period with back-to-back successes on the paint. And when Laos closed in, Nay Myo Min drilled in a three-pointer to follow up his drive in the lane. That sealed the issue for Myanmar.

Wai Lu scored 10 points for the game and Nay Myo Min a dozen.

Sein Lyan had held fort for Myanmar until then.

The 181-cm center returned an impressive 63% record in his two-point attempts, converting five of his eight attempts, and included a three-pointer in his team-high 15 points. Sein Lyan also grabbed four rebounds.

Somboun Nadonhais game-high 24 points for Laos went in vain.
