White beat Red 96-89 ; Lo repeates as MVP

With all five starters scoring in double figures, White Team beat Red Team 96-89 in the annual SBL All-Star Game last night at Taipei Physical Education College Gymnasium. But Lo Shin-liang, who is on Red Team, surprisingly got the nod as MVP with his 17 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists and 3 steals versatile performance.

Lo Shin-liang also won the MVP honor in the All-Star Game last year.

Tien Lei won the Dunk contest with his creativity, taking his jersey and pant off in successive dunks. Sina's rookie Chang Yu-lin finished second. Videoland's rookie Wu Cheng-yu surprisingly won the Three-point Shootout.

Cheng Chih-lung, who a couple years ago was still regarded as one of Asia's finest players, scored 23 points in the game.
