Yi’s Nation secured a place in the semi-finals of the You-C1000 Basketball Cup 2022 after a 79-61 victory over Tropang at the Brunei Basketball Association Court in Batu Bersurat yesterday.

Yi’s Nation player Soon Kian Leong had another memorable night after registering 22 points for his team.

Team captain Jamri Ramlee also contributed to the victory with a haul of 21 points in his account.

The victory put them in a match-up against TK Tea House for a shot in the title decider.

Meanwhile, Fuzhou Shiyyi Association came out on top in the late tip-off last Saturday following a 94-80 victory over newcomers Chill at the same venue.

The team will be in contention for the final, but will face a tough test against the defending champions Easyway, who survived a scare against Pegasus in their match-up.

TK Tea House William Ching led the attack with 27 points with Earl Medina also impressive in the scoring front with 23 points.

Francis Juelar also posted double digits with 17 point for the 2021 runners-up.
