UBA tips-off as TPEC eyes the 11th straight title

TPEC(Taipei Physical Education College), the perennial powerhouse in the collegiate level, is looking down to an unprecedented 11th straight UBA(University Basketball Alliance) champion in the 2005-06 season, which tips-off today. TPEC will also try to extend its unbelievable 116-game winning streak.

Once again, TPEC will look like a SBL All-Star Team. Led by Tsun Wen-din, Lee Chi-yi, point guard Chen Shih-nian and others, TPEC is hard to beat.

And once again, the biggest rival for TPEC will be NTNU(National Taiwan Normal University), which almost snapped TPEC's winning streak and eventually lost in last year's final. NTNU added an outstanding freshman class in PG Su Yi-chieh, PF/C Jian Jia-hong and F Cheng Jen-wei to the upperclass which incudes Tien Lei, Wu Yong-jen, Ho Sho-jen, Lee Fong-yong and Wang Chih-chun. If there's one team that can knock down TPEC, it will be NTNU.

Preliminary round will be followed by the second round and finals, which will take place from March 16-30, 2006.
