Day 2: Taiwan NT Cruise By Mongolia

11 of 12 Taiwanese players scored as Taiwan breezed past Mongolia 109-78 on the second day of the 2001 Jones Cup action yesterday. Taiwan is now 2-0 and will face tougher opponents in the remaining games.

Taiwan took advantage of its height over the smaller Mongolia, which the tallest player stands only 193cm. After a 17-0 run in the first quarter, the game was in the refrigerator. Taiwan's second unit played a big role in the game, with backup SG Lin Jia-huang scoring team-high 19 points and backup SF Shan Wei-fan collecting 14 points in 12 minutes.
