Gilas recorded their second win of the 39th William Jones Cup after holding off Chinese Taipei B (White), 93-82, on Monday in Taiwan.

Matthew Wright led all scorers with 21 points, making 5-of-9 from downtown, while Mike Myers had his best game so far in the tournament with a double-double effort of 14 points and 14 rebounds.

The win comes less than 24 hours after Gilas upended Chinese Taipei Blue, 88-72, in a hard-fought game, and as such Gilas looked sluggish to start the game, committing a bunch of errors. Chinese Taipei capitalized on the miscues to score easy baskets in transition and take a narrow 20-18 lead after the first quarter.
