Unbeaten Mighty-PH slips past Lebanon, extends streak to 3
DUBAI—Team Mighty Sports-Philippines surpassed tough Homenetmen of Lebanon, 96-89, to remain unbeaten in three starts in the 30th Dubai International Basketball Championships at Shabab Al Ahli gymnasium here on Sunday night.
Sweet-shooting Randolph Morris and in-form Justin Brownlee delivered their usual numbers while Filipino-American wingman Jeremiah Gray provided the boost off the bench as Mighty Sports practically secured top seeding in Group A.
The 6-foot-10 Morris accounted for a team-high-tying 24 points, 15 of them coming in the opening half, while Brownlee sustained his fiery form with his second straight double-double of 19 points and 13 rebounds on top of seven assists and two steals.
Not to be outshone was Gray, who emerged as the biggest revelation offensively by knocking down 24 points.
“We haven’t been together for long but I like the composure they are showing,” coach Charles Tiu said.
