BCL Asia: Justin Brownlee leads Pelita Jaya to unbeaten round 1 finish


Justin Brownlee helped Pelita Jaya Basketball finish its Round 1 campaign in the Basketball Champions League Asia (BCL Asia) Qualifiers unbeaten after beating Adroit Club, 82-64, Saturday at the UG Arena in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

The veteran winger finished with 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting from the field, including 3-of-4 from deep, and six rebounds as he sparked the important fourth-quarter run to repel their Singaporean counterparts for good.

He opened the deciding frame with a floater and the Indonesian side would go on a 12-2 spurt for a 69-50 lead with 6;30 to go, more than enough to restore order after the opposition got to as close as seven points in the period prior.

Pelita Jaya had already clinched a spot in Round 2 of the Qualifiers in Jakarta later this April being the no. 1 seed in Group B, but refused to let up as it concluded the first round with a pristine 3-0 record.

JaQuori McLaughlin top-scored for Pelita Jaya with 25 points on four triples, alongside three rebounds, seven assists, and two steals.

Muhammad Guntara added 11 points and 6 rebounds in the triumph that saw all but three of the 12 players contribute at least two points.

Donald Kelly, meanwhile, had 26 points and 11 rebounds for Adroit Club, who finished the Qualifiers winless in three outings.

Lok Yao Tor was the only other double-digit scorer for the crew with 14 points and three assists as they ended up as the lone listless team in Group B.
