Doug Creighton, a 6-6 forward currently playing for Pure Youth Construction Group, is the second Taiwanese American player after James Mao to join the SBL. He goes by the Chinese name of Chien Hao.

6-5 James Mao, who played last season as an import, has received Taiwan citizenship and will be listed as a local this season. Mao, who came from Texas, also plays for Pure Youth.

Creighton, whose mother is Taiwanese, played for NAIA Div-II Madonna University in Michigan in his junior (7.6p+4rb) and senior year (5.8p+3.8rb) after spending two years in Henry Ford Community College. From his bio, I htink he came from Detriot area.

  3. Doug can and is a very good bballer. Once he gets used to the refs in Taiwan, he will be a good player for Puh Yuen.

  4. Doug is averaging 7.9p, 3.6rb, 1.7s in 23 min per game, but he's only making 38.6% of his shots. I guess he needs more time to get used to the environment and the style. From what I've seen, his teammates failed to create shots for him regularly. Maybe everyone's looking for his own shots first :)

  5. I personally know and have played against Doug, he is not that good. I have outplayed him every game against him and over an entire college career. This is rediculous that he is playing professionally anywhere. Madonna is a terrible basketball school and he could hardly get minutes there.
