MACAU --- After a tough out against the pesky Samsung Thunders, Blackwater's Super 8 stint is not about to get any easier.
The Elite go for a possible semis stint Wednesday as they resume Group B play vs. China's Guangzhou Long Lions.
Both teams are coming off hard opening day victories with the Elite needing a late-fourth quarter blast to put away the Koreans.
The Long Lions had a pretty similar outing against Japan's Rizing Zephyr before taking a close six-point decision.
The winner of this 7:00 p.m. matchup will have an inside track for first place in Group B and action is live from the East Asian Games Dome here.
