Lu Cheng-ju's three saves the day for Yulon

Lu Cheng-ju scored all of his 8 points in the 4th quarter, including a go-ahead three-pointer with 0.6 second remaining, as Yulon (17-6) overcame a 15-point deficit and beat Taiwan Beer 73-71 Sunday.

Lu, who replaced injured Chen Hsin-an as the starting small forward, and Tsun Wen-din, who played all 40 minutes as turned in 24 points and 16 boards, helped ignite a game-changing 13-1 run in the final quarter.

SBL leading scorer Lin Chih-jay had an off night, scoring only 5 points on 2-of-10 shooting and missed two free-throws with 26.6 seconds left. The misses hurt TB (16-8), which dropped to No. 3 in the standing after the devastating loss.

Yulon stayed on top of the standing while Videoland rose to No. 2 with 16 wins and 7 losses, 1/2 game ahead of TB.

BOT lost to ETSN 103-83 and extended its losing streak to 11 games.
