Despite limited minutes, Eugene Phelps and Renaldo Balkman paced the Charles Tiu-mentored squad with 19 and 17 points, respectively.

With its sixth straight win in as many matches, Mighty-GFG now only needs to beat host Taiwan-A on Saturday to regain the title it won in the club’s initial foray in the annual tournament three years ago.

The best team after the single-round robin eliminations will be declared champion.

“That’s the moment we are waiting for, we need to win that for the country,” Mighty Sports owner Alex Wongchuking said.
