Dubai power club Al Ahli beat Malaysia Dragons 81-69 on Monday in their third game at the Asia Champions Cup as they clinched a place in the quarter-finals. Al Ahli's basketball team assured themselves of at least one knockout match at the Asia Champions Cup on Monday by beating Malaysia Dragons 81-69 in their third group game at the tournament in Chenzhou, China. Ahli, who won their first match on Saturday against Kazakhstan's Barsy Atyrau before losing on Sunday to China's Xinjiang Flying Tigers, got out to a surprising five-point first quarter deficit. The Dubai club steadied from there, however, going into half-time level with the Dragons 38-38 before building a seven-poing lead going into the fourth-quarter, which was never challenged. Sam Young (198-F/G-85, college: Pittsburgh), a veteran of parts of four NBA seasons from 2009-13, continued to be their leading light. The 31-year-old swing man scored 32 points on 10-of-24 shooting with seven rebounds. Young opened the tournament with 50 points in the win against the Kazakhstan club. Emirati Qais Omar also continued to stand out at the tournament, going 8-of-18 for 16 points with 17 rebounds. Another Emirati, Mohammed Al Ajmani, scored 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting. Ahli's big man stalwart Cheikh Samb (216-C-84), a Senagalese former NBA player, did not play.
