Taiwan NT 2-0 in SoCal Summer Pro League

Taiwan NT, which entered Southern California Summer Pro League as Frontline Sports, won both of their games and finished a month-long U.S. training tour in a high note.

Taiwan edged Senegal NT 87-85 on a winning shot by Yang Yu-min with 3.5 seconds left on July 9th. Today Taiwan NT beat NBA Pro 110-104. The REAL Frontline Sports will take over the remaining schedule in the summer league, while Taiwan NT heads back to Taiwan to prepare for the upcoming Jones Cup.

Yang Yu-min, who struggled quite a bit in the first half of the 2004-05 SBL season, kept his hot-hand going by scoring 53 points in two games. Center Wu Dai-hao, guards Chou Shih-yuan and Lee Hsueh-lin also played very well.

Taiwan NT finished a month-long training tour in Los Angeles, where they played with local college teams and mix-up teams before entering SoCal Summer Pro League.

In the second-half of the year, Taiwan NT will compete in three events -- Jones Cup in Taipei, East Asian games in Macao and Asian Championship in Qatar.
