Second-year forward Cheng shot down Yulon in last exhibition game

東森鄭人維(右)ETSN's second-year forward Cheng Jen-wei scored game-high 23 points, shooting 6 of 10 from the three-point line, and helped ETSN to a 81-75 victory in the last SBL exhibition game Tuesday. ETSN won both of its warmup games.

ETSN import Delvin Thomas had another brilliant game, tallying 11 points and 15 boards in just 21 minutes. Center-forward Hsiao Yuan-chan had 13 and 5.

Defending champ Yulon was led by Chou Shih-yuan and Chiu Chi-yi, who scored 15 respectively. Center Tsun Wen-din had 13 points and 11 rebounds while Chen Hsin-an turned in 11 points and pulled down 7 boards.

The 2006-07 SBL season, which was pushed back due to the Doha Asian Games, will tip-off on Saturday with a rematch of last season's Finals as Yulon meets Taiwan Beer in the opening game.
