An official good-bye

This blog has been a collection of my reporting on Taiwanese basketball between 1999 and 2012. Due to personal reasons, I had stopped updating this blog since October 2012. It's been a memorable 13 years. Thank you all for your support.

Shanghai wins 2012 Straits Cup invitational


Shanghai Sharks defeated Pure Youth Construction 80-62 on Monday and won the four-team 2012 Straits Cup Invitational with a 3-0 record.

Shanghai only led by one at the half but limited PY to 9 points in the third period with the help of strong defense from Tseng Wen-ting, who had 5 points, 7 rebounds and 3 steals, and Zhang Zhaoxu, who tallied 15 points, 12 boards and 4 blocks.

Su Yi-chieh signs with Xinjiang

Local media reported that Su Yi-chieh, who played with Taiwan Mobile last season, has signed with China’s Xinjiang and became the sixth Taiwanese player to play in China next season.

Su tested with Xinjiang two years ago but did not sign with the team.

Xinjiang made the semifinal round in the Chinese pro league CBA last season.

The six Taiwanese players to play in China next year are Su, Lin Chih-chieh (Zhejiang), Tseng Wen-ting (Shanghai), Yang Ching-min (Shanxi), Lee Hsueh-lin (Beijing) and Hong Chih-shan (Dongguan).

2012 Straits Cup: Shanghai vs. Dacin highlights

Taiwan Mobile’s ambitious signing

Taiwan Mobile almost revamped its entire starting roster with the signing of four national team members and looked like a team capable of contending for the championship in the new season.

Wu Tai-hao, who played for China’s Zhejiang last season, signed with the ambitious team. Wu was followed by Ho Shou-cheng, Cheng Jen-wei and Chen Shih-nian.

Taiwan 4th place in FIBA Asia U18 women’s championship

2012FAU18W-Johor BahruFPG20121064620

Taiwan U18 women’s NT lost to South Korea 61-42 in the bronze medal game of the 2012 FIBA Asia U18 Women’s Championship in Johor Bahru, Malaysia yesterday and failed to win a ticket to the World Championship.

Taiwan defeated South Korea 88-71 in its last preliminary game, but the team obviously was still in a slump yesterday after suffering a 113-55 defeat against Japan in the semifinal.
