Chang Yu-lin scored 22 points while Hong Chih-shan as Azio Eagles upset Videoland 66-60 Saturday to snap its league-high 10-game losing streak and finally got the first win of the season before the Lunar New Year break.

Azio's win came unexpectedly because two of its best inside players -- Chien Jia-hong and Wu Jian-long -- were out of the game due to injury. Luckily for Azio, VL dug itself a big hole by missing 15 of 35 free-throws and 18 of 22 3-point attempts.

Chen Shi-jay's layup with 10.2 seconds left boosted Azio's lead to 5 points and ensured the victory.

Janathan Sanders pulled down 28 rebounds, a new SBL single-game record, to go with 20 points in the losing effort. Yang Che-yi had 16 points.

Videoland has dropped four of its last five games after a 7-0 start.
