MACAU --- Another strong start propels Ryukyu to victory.

The Golden Kings marched to the championship round of the Terrific 12 tournament, beating Nagoya, 66-48, in an all-Japan semifinal at the Studio City Event Center here.

Similar to their beatdown of iECO earlier in the week, the Golden Kings held their opponents to just five point in the opening period and never looked back.

The twin tower combination of Josh Scott and Jeff Ayres proved to be extremely effective for Ryukyu as the Golden Kings frustrated the Diamond Dolphins all game long.

Ryukyu led by as many as 19 points and while Nagoya cut that deficit in half come the fourth period, the Dolphins never truly threatened the Golden Kings after their poor start.
