Yulon routs TB, clinches top seed

With a 20-0 opening run, Yulon turned a highly-anticipated game into a rout. Dinos beat Taiwan Beer 85-68 to clinch the top playoff seed Friday.

Yulon's tenacious defense forced TB without a field-goal for seven minutes in the first quarter. TB didn't score until Lee Wei-min made a three-pointer with 2:50 left in the period. After the opening 10 minutes, the score was already 25-6, Yulon. And the rest was history.

In the first game YMY lost to Videoland and pushed its losing streak record to 24 games.

For Videoland, the chance of making the playoffs is still there but it's slim. VL will make the playoffs as the 4th seed if it wins the remaining three games and Bank of Taiwan drops its last two games of the season.
