MACAU --- The Philippines was given a rude welcome in the Terrific 12 tournament here. Japan's Ryukyu Golden Kings gave the iECO Green Warriors a sound beating Tuesday at the Studio City Event Center, scoring a booming win.

The Golden Kings led by as many as 35 points and cruised to victory in the second half. iECo only scored five points in the opening period as the lone Pinoy team went down by 18 early. To make matters worse for the Green Warriors, top import Richard Howell injured his left knee three and a half minutes into the game. Howell, a former PBA Best Import for Talk 'N Text, was going for a block in transition before he slipped. He had to be stretchered out of the court. He did return to the iECO bench in the second half. Five players scored in double figures for Ryukyu led by 17 points from Josh Scott. Takatoshi Furukawa was the top local for the Golden Kings with 15 points. Yutaro Suda and Ryouma Hashimoto added 14 and 13 points respectively. For the Green Warriors, it was Matt Salem that led the way with 15 points. iECo will return to action Thursday against the Xinjiang Flying Tigers.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8  .....»»
