Phoenix Super LPG blew away Converge, 89-66, on Saturday in Matthew Wright's final game before he flies to the US.

Wright led the charge for Phoenix with 15 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists.

He was scheduled to fly to the US late Saturday for his wedding.

Phoenix coach Topex Robinson said the victory was sort of a tribute to their scorer.

“It’s a way to honor Matt playing his final game for us," said Robinson. "It's going to be his wedding day on the 24th, so he has to leave I think tonight for the US."

"It's a long planned big day for him."

Meanwhile, Jason Perkins had 14 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists for Phoenix which upped its record to 3-7.

It was a bad game for Converge, which was held to just 20 points in the first two quarters.

None of the FiberXers managed to score in double digits. Converge fell to 4-6.
