The Philippines – Mighty Sports Apparel is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the team Japan at 3:00 P.M. on July 14, 2019 in Changhua Gymnasium, New Taipei City, Taiwan.
The Mighty Sports Apparel – Go for Gold Philippines are looking for their third straight victory against team Japan when the 41st William Jones Cup resumes in Taiwan.
Yesterday, the Philippine squad had another convincing victory against team Jordan, 90-74.
Former PBA imports, Renaldo Balkman and Eugene Phelps powered the squad with their combined 37 points, 11 boards, and two block shots.
The team coached by Charles Tiu broke loose in the second quarter of that match where they piled 15 point lead at the end of the first half.
In the opening of the third quarter, team Jordan slowed down the pace of the game and at first, it worked for them as they were able to reduce the lead. Yet, team Philippines found the needed adjustment and from there until the last buzzer it was all Mighty Sports.
For team Japan, on the other hand, they’re coming from a one day rest after they have beaten Taiwan’s national basketball team.
