This game is going to be a part of the FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers. In this encounter, the Guam men are going to take on Chinese Taipei as a part of the Group G battle in Yigo Village, which is in the United States Territory of Guam. More about GUA vs CT Dream 11 will be given below.
Guam and Chinese Taipei are not far away from the rankings with the former being at 77 and the latter at 68. Both teams have a well-balanced lineup but it can be argued that Chinese Taipei may be outmuscled at the Frontline position. The matchup between Tai Wesley and Ying Chun-Chen is the most interesting one as both players can do various tasks and can pose matchup problems. The biggest headache for Chinese Taipei can be Curtis Owen Washington who can get a great position inside and a physical effort will be needed to contain his threat. Chinese Taipei’s strength is not committing many silly turnovers while Guam is exceptional at rebounding, an area where they outmatch Chinese Taipei. It is even-stevens out here but if Guam controls the rebounding battle they can shun off the Chinese Taipei effort.

*stats from games played in June window*
1. Curtis Owen Washington
Curtis is a tough player to guard as he uses his heavy built to carve space inside while he also presents a more than decent shooting touch at the Center position. Washington is also a tenacious rebounder and plays a hard brand of basketball. Curtis is a candidate as the Super-Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.
2. Yu Jui Chen
Yu plays the Forward position and possesses an incredible shooting touch from both mid-range and beyond. He will need to box out against tough rebounding Forwards of Guam.
3. Tai Wesley
Tai is perhaps the most versatile player among the two teams. He is a gifted scorer, who possesses moves to score inside and outside, both off the dribble and off the ball. He is also a stellar rebounder and has a knack for finding open teammates.
4. Ya-Hsuan Hsieh
On some nights, Ya-Hsuan can light it up from the long-range and can find open mates for buckets.
5. Daren Hechanova
Daren is another versatile player from Guam who is primarily an excellent rebounder. He uses his court vision to also find open teammates and he can also chip in with few points.
