Wu Dai-hao, who returned to Taiwan after a two-year career at BYU-Hawaii, had 12 points and 11 rebounds in his home debut and Huang Bao-tse hit a go-ahead three-pointer with 3.4 seconds remining as ETSN upset Taiwan Beer 85-83 Saturday.

TB led by as many as 12 as Lin Chih-jay scored 10 points in the third quarter, but ETSN didn't give up. Wu Dai-hao scored in the paint and tied the game at 79 all with less than two minutes to go before Yang Yu-min's three made the score 82-79, ETSN.

The Beermen seemed to take the game after Lo Shin-liang made another back-breaking three with 11.7 seconds left and made the score 83-82, TB. After a timeout, Huang Bao-tse knocked down the game-winner.

In another heavyweight matchup of the evening, Videoland overcame a ridiculous 1-of-8 performance at the free-throw line during the last minute and held on for a 96-93 win over Yulon, which lost two straight.

Lee Chi-yi's basket and free-throw help VL take a 95-91 lead with 31.7 seconds to go. As Yulon kept fouling to regain possessions, the Hunters managed to make only one out of 8 free-throw attempts. As ridiculous aas that, Yulon failed to pull ahead.

Chen Hsin-an tied his personal best with 11 three-pointers made in a single game and scored all his 33 points on threes. He was 11-of-22 from three and 0-of-3 from two-point range.
