MD Challenge Day 3: Yulon won two straight

Tsun Wen-din’s 19 points, 7 rebounds and 6 blocks led Yulon to a 91-74 win over Bank of Taiwan. At 2-0, Yulon becomes the only undefeated team in the Challenge series.

Chen Hsin-an, who will be leaving next week for the minor league ABA tryout in the US, had 18 points in the game. BOT was led by Lee Chi-shun’s 18 points.

SINA 81-80 Taiwan Beer
The most shocking game of the day. Ha Hsiao-yuan was whistled for a 5-second violation when he was attempting his potential game-tying free-throw with less than three seconds left, as Taiwan Beer lost a heartbreaker 81-80 to SINA, who won for the first time after losing two straight.

Ho Sho-jen tallied 29 points for TB, which also received 21 points and 12 boards from Lin Chi-jay. SINA’s Lin Yu-shu had 13 points. Rookie Wang Chuan-jian had a double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds.

ETSN 94-92(OT) Dacin
Unheralded Shin Jin-jan scored 23 points, including 5 in overtime, and Wu Dai-hao had 19 points and 14 rebounds to help ETSN edge Dacin 94-92 in overtime. ETSN veteran Chou Jun-san was still brilliant, collecting 11 points, 10 boards and 5 assists.

Chang Chi-feng led Dacin with 28 points. Lee Fong-yong had 16 and 11, while Tien Lei had 14 points and pulled down 11 rebounds.

Yulon 2-0, ETSN 2-1, Dacin 1-1, Videoland 1-1, Taiwan Beer 1-2, BOT 1-2, SINA 1-2
