Mighty Sports-Go for Gold Philippines had no problems whatsoever for the second straight game in the 2019 William Jones Cup, powering right through world no. 49 Jordan, 90-74, Saturday inside Changhua Gym in Taiwan.

Roosevelt Adams yet again waxed hot from the get go, dropping all but three of his 11 total points in the first half.

Reinforcements Eugene Phelps and Renaldo Balkman then joined in on the fun in the second half as the former finished with 20 points while the latter ended with 17 markers, seven rebounds, and two blocks.

The Filipinos will now turn their attention to another national team in world no. 48 Japan on Sunday.
