The Mighty Sports Philippines is scheduled for a bronze medal head-to-head game against the Homenetmen Lebanon at 10:00 P.M. (PHI time) on February 9, 2019 live from the Shabab Al Ahli Club, Dubai, UAE.
The Philippine squad will attempt to make their best finish at the Dubai basketball league when the 30th Dubai International Basketball Tournament resume this evening.
Just making to the semis is what the Mighty Sports goal this year when they returned to UAE.
They were able to accomplish that by sweeping the elimination round and then winning their game against the Oil Sports Iraq in the knockout quarterfinals round.
In the final four they met the much tougher and several time champion Al Riyadi Beirut.
The Lebanese team bombarded the Filipino squad with their long bombs early in the game.
Though Mighty Sports able to trim the deficit to only single digit in the fourth quarter but the inability to control the boards especially in the crucial moments of the game lost their chance to qualify to the Finals.
Team Philippines and the Homenetmen already played earlier and it was the Mighty Sports went victorious, 96-89.
