Wu Dai-hao doing fine at BYU-Hawaii

Wu Dai-hao, the first Taiwanese player to play in the NCAA in the last decade, is averaging 9.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks as a freshman at BYU-Hawaii after six games. BYU-Hawaii, a Division-II school, is 2-4 after dropping two straight to Chaminade.
Wu Dai-hao registered his season-high 18 points on 5-of-9 shooting, including two three-pointers, in 29 minutes in the 84-76 loss to Chaminade on December 20th.
Starting all six games, Wu averages 9.5 points in 20.5 minutes, which is not bad for a freshman who is still adjusting culturally and basketball-wise after stepping on U.S. soil a couple months ago. Wu also scores efficiently as he is making 60% of his field goals, 55.6% on three-pointers and 76.2% free-throws.
BYU-Hawaii will play Cheyney (PA) on December 30th in Laie, Hawaii, after the Christmas break.
