Mighty starts search for back-to-back

/ 05:43 AM September 21, 2016

MIGHTY Sports Apparels-Philippines launches its bid for back-to-back titles when it tests the Samsung Thunders at the start of the Merlion Cup today at OCBC Arena in Singapore.

The team has a pair of explosive imports and a naturalized Filipino ready to provide stability but whether they can play as a team will be known when they collide with the two-time Korean Basketball League champions at 8:30 p.m.

Out to provide firepower for the Charles Tiu-mentored Mighty Sports are reigning Jones Cup MVP Dewarick Spencer and former PBA import Al Thornton—the same import who scored 69 points against San Miguel Beer.

Taking a break from his NBA D-League workouts with the Texas Legends, where he is shooting for a roster spot, Kiefer Ravena will be arriving in the Lion City in time for their match with the Korean team. Cedelf P. Tupas
