MSGM put Warriors to the sword in Phnom Penh basketball league

A depleted Warriors side proved no match for MSGM as the predominantly Chinese outfit earned a 84-59 win in the Chitato Potato Chips Mini Basketball League at the Cambodian Country Club court on Friday evening.

Having lost their opening fixtures, both MSGM and Warriors were keen on breaking into a winning stride but the Warriors found themselves short on the bench as only eight players were available at the tip-off. It made a crucial difference.

For MSGM, Pico and Hong Kwang hit 19 and 17 points respectively, but the MVP award went to Frenchman Harold (9) for his defensive work, while his Warriors teammates Kidon (18 points) and Morales (15) also stood out.

With this victory, MSGM have given themselves a lifeline going into Gameweek 3.
