Dacin guard Chang Chi-feng made 13 three-pointers en route to his career-high 43 points in a 97-96 win over Azio Friday and set the SBL single-game three-pointers record. Chang broke Chen Hsin-an's record of 11 threes in a game while also set the single-period three-pointer record with seven.

Chang had 21 points, the second highest SBL single-period score behind Yang Che-yi's 23 points, in the fourth quarter and single-handedly overcame Dacin's 11-point deficit for the win. His last three came at 29.6 seconds remaining to make the score 97-96.

Chang shot an eye-popping 13-of-20 from the three-point territory.

Tien Lei also exploded for 37 points and 12 rebounds for Dacin, which is now 8-7 and ranked 4th on the standing.

Inexperienced Azio let the win slip away once again. Chien Jia-hong led with 33 points while Zuo Tsun-kai scored season-high 19 points. Tsai Wen-cheng had 13 points while James Mao had 12.
