An undermanned Mighty Sports team defeated Chinese Taipei B, 81-71, to complete a sweep of the 2019 William Jones Cup on Sunday at the Xinzhuang Gymnasium in New Taipei City.

Playing without Renaldo Balkman and Zachary Graham, Mighty Sports leaned on a timely eruption from Joseph Yeo and the steady production of Eugene Phelps to complete an 8-game sweep of the tournament.

Phelps finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds, while Yeo scored 11 points -- all of which came in the crucial second quarter wherein Mighty Sports outscored Chinese Taipei B, 25-16, to seize control of the ball game.

McKenzie Moore added 16 points on 5-of-8 shooting, as he and Phelps combined for 15 points in the payoff period for Mighty Sports.

Yung Cheng Wu led Chinese Taipei B with 15 points.

The win wrapped up a dominant campaign for Mighty Sports, which won its games by an average of 20.5 points in the competition.
