Yulon overcame a 15-point second half deficit and upset Dacin 77-76 Sunday night, snapping Dacin's quest for its team-best six-game winning streak.

Yulon rallied to tie the game at 71 all before Chen Hsin-an scored a go-ahead basket with 53.2 seconds left to put Yulon on top, 77-76. Fllowing a timeout, Tien Lei missed a potential game-winning three as the ball bounced off the rim.

Wang Chih-chun made six 3-pointers in the second quarter as Dacin opened a 12-point halftime lead and expanded it to 15 early in the third quarter.

On Saturday, Tien Lei scored all but two of his 25 points in the second half and led Dacin to its fifth consecutive win after beating Taiwan Beer 90-86. Two teams combined for 31 3-pointers made in the game, a new SBL single-game record.
