Cathay Life takes 16th consecutive crown

Led by center Chiang Feng-chun's 19 points and 9 rebounds, Cathay Life beat Chunghwa Telecom 66-52 to wrap up the 2007 WSBL (Women's Super Basketball League) Finals 2-0 and took its 16th consecutive title in Taiwanese women's basketball.

Cathay Life head coach Hong Ling-yao said after the game that the team was considering to field two teams in the WSBL next season. The idea may sound a little bit crazy but it made sense because Cathay Life -- the richest team in the WSBL -- was simply overloaded with talents.

In the other game, Taiyuan Textile beat Taipower 71-63 and won the third-place series 2-0.

2007 final WSBL placings:
1. Cathay Life
2. Chunghwa Telecom
3. Taiyuan Textile
4. Taipower
