The only blemish in Gomez de Liano’s otherwise spectacular performance was his 0-of-8 clip from three-point area.

Mark Doligon had 19 points to top-score for the Mustangs, although he shot 9-of-24 from the floor. He also had 7 rebounds, 8 assists, and 2 steals.

The Knights shot 47 percent overall from the field and made 14 triples, compared to only six for the Mustangs.

Due to a technical problem yesterday brought by heavy rains in Bali, both the Knights and Mustangs will play another game later in the afternoon.
