Chen’s confidence rises in Long Beach debut

Chen Hsin-an, who officially signed with Long Beach on January 24th, had a surprising start and scored 9 points in 13 minutes in his Long Beach debut on January 25th. Long Beach lost 98-84 to the Ontario Warriors, but Chen obviously boosted his confidence after the turbulent first three months in the ABA. Chen didn’t know he was starting until tip-off. He shot 4 for 8 in the game.

Chen Hsin-an, aka Sean Chen, wears No.33 jersey for the Jam. He was scoreless in Orange County Crush’s loss to Utah Snowbears, his first game in the ABA, on January 9th. OC Crush folded after that while most of the team’s coaching staff and players joined Long Beach. OC Crush changed ownership and will operate in the new name of California Buzz.
