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.
