(CNN Philippines, December 2) — Gilas Pilipinas swept the first-ever 3x3 men’s basketball tournament in the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games.

The Philippines dismantled Indonesia, 21-9, Monday at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan City.

Like in their previous games, Gilas relied on its height advantage to build a double digit lead halfway through the match.

One of the highlights in the contest was CJ Perez’s reel baseline dunk, which sent everyone watching at the venue screaming.

Mo Tautuaa knocked down the game-winning shot to seal the Philippines’ 31st gold medal.

Gilas concluded the tournament with a perfect 7-0 win-loss record.
