[Asia News = Reporter Reakkana] MANILA — China needed a late surge to beat Japan, 90-84, and remain undefeated in Group B of the Fiba Asia Cup qualifiers in Clark, Pampanga.

Down seven with a little over six minutes left, China went on a 17-4 run to turn the game around. China’s size advantage was too much to overcome for Japan with 7-foot-1 center Zhou Qi leading the way. Qi imposed his will with 18 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks to help his team go 3-0.


A triple by Zhao Yanhao sealed the game for China, 88-81, with 1:06 remaining. China outrebounded Japan, 37-22. Yuki Togashi had 17 points for Japan, which slipped to 2-2.
