Taichung, Aug. 30 (CNA) The Global Warriors basketball team on Sunday clinched the title of a winter basketball league for Philippine migrant workers organized by a Philippine organization that aims to help its compatriots in different countries.

The Global Warriors, a team composed of Filipino migrant workers from central Taiwan that was formed in 2019, defeated the El Norte team 86-73 to take the championship.

The Warriors started off well with several fast-break points and easy baskets from inside the key against El Norte's zone, forcing it to go to man-to-man defense.
