NOTES: Div-II, UBA updates

-- Jin-jin Design, which is conprised of mostly former Yulon players, wins the Division-II in 2002 President Cup with a 5-0 record in the single-round robin games. The fact that Jin-jin Design wins the division playing only 5 games and with mostly retired players from Div-I says something about the lifeless Taiwanese basketball. Also, two of the six Div-II teams are university teams.

Div-II Standings: 1. Jin-jin Design(5-0), 2. National Taiwan College of Physical Education, NTCPE (4-1), 3. Fushiang Hotel(3-2), 4. Tung-nan Institute of Technology, TNIT(2-3), 5. Tsaishin HS Alumni(1-4), 6. Jia-na Corp.(0-5)
