It was a case of men against boys as Japan cruised past Macau at the East Asia Basketball Championship on Sunday with a dominant 119-47 win.

With the game quickly in hand, Japan head coach Luka Pavicevic spread the minutes and shots around. Six players scored in double digits for the hosts, led by Makoto Hiejima’s 17-point double-double. The SeaHorses Mikawa shooting guard got his points on 13 shots including 3-for-4 from behind the arc while adding 10 assists.
