Seventh-ranked Chinese Macau (7-7) made lots of trouble for fourth ranked Hong Kong ELL (11-8) on Saturday. Hong Kong ELL managed to secure only two-point victory 111-109.

American guard Marcus Elliott (191-84, college: Louisiana Tech) chipped in 34 points (!!!), 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Hong Kong ELL's coach used a ten-player rotation in such tough game.

Hong Kong ELL moved-up to second place. Macau lost third consecutive game. They keep the seventh position with seven games lost. Hong Kong ELL are looking forward to face league's leader SM Beermen in Manila in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week.
