Taiwan NT escapes on Chen's winner

Taiwan NT edged Korea's WUG Team 74-72 in the second warmup game yesterday on Chen Hsin-an's baseline turnaround jumper with 4 seconds left. In the extra fifth period, Taiwan led 22-19. Taiwan is now 2-0 in the seven-game warmup trip.

Tsun Wen-din had 16 points to lead all 12 players played. Chen Hsin-an and Chou Shih-yuan scored 11 points each. Tien Lei had 10 while Yang Che-yi added 9.

Taiwan NT coaching staff did not like the fact Taiwan NT only made five threes in the game, but they were satisfied that the team kept its turnovers under 10.

Julian Kim of Korea WUG Team, which left for Turkey for the World University Games after the game, scored 16 points.
