SINGAPORE - Singapore's men's basketball team crashed out of the semi-finals of the SEA Games competition, losing 74-87 to Indonesia at the OCBC Arena Hall 1 on Sunday night.

The result meant that the hosts will only get to play the bronze-medal match against Thailand on Monday, and could not improve on their bronze showing at the 2013 Myanmar Games.

Indonesia's Andrie Ekayana Santosa led his team with 16 points, as Indonesia led from tip-off and never reliquished their lead.

Singapore's Larry Liew also had 16 points, but the team lost captain Desmond Oh and Lim Shengyu through serious-looking injuries as both were stretchered off the court.
