BEIRUT, Lebanon - Qatar ascertained their dominance early in the game, and then cruised along, albeit at times in tumultuous waters, for a 66-61 win over Philippines in Group B on Tuesday.

The win put Qatar on top of the standings as the first team to win all their three outings so far in the competition. Philippines wound up their Group B engagements with a 2-2 record.


Targuy Ngombo, for the third game running returned a game-high with 29 points.

Ngombo, who had scored a tournament-high 39 points against Syria and a game-high 24 against Jordan, went for another impressive 60% field record (11/15 on the paint and 1/5 from the perimeter) and 67% (4/6) from the foul-line.

Ngombo also pulled down nine rebounds to add value to his presence.

Qatar pulled ahead with a 14-0 rally with Ngombo scoring nine points in that spree to close the first quarter 21-6.

There was very little to worry for Ali Fakhroo’s team after that.

Philippines clawed their way into the game and attempted a fight back, but that initial deficit proved too heavy to surmount.

Ali Ali scored a dozen points and collected as many boards for a double-double for Qatar.
