Bank of Taiwan ends three-game losing streak

PG Hsu Hao-cheng dished out 14 assists last night(Apr.18) as Bank of Taiwan found back their high-octane offense and beat Military, 104-89, ending their three-game losing streak. Yang Chin-min contributed 19 points, while Chen Shen-ya had 16. NT forward Ho Sho-jen had 14 points. BOT is now 1-3. Military was led by Wu Chen-tao's 27. Lo Da-wei had 20 points and 8 rebounds.

Jutai Tech beat Dacin, 78-74, to go 4-1 and made a strong push to the second place in the preliminaries, behind powerhouse Yulon(4-0). Trailed by as many as 14 points, Dacin cut the deficit down to two(74-76) with a late rally, which Lee Fong-yong made two consecutive three-pointers. But Jutai hanged on after Yang Yu-min made two free-throws with 5 seconds remaining. Dacin dropped to 1-3 after the defeat.

According to what I heard, Dacin will still keep star forward Tien Lei on the sideline before he is fully recovered from his hand injury.(Although Tien should be able to play maybe in next week)
