Yang Ching-min named BOW

Taiwan Beer forward Yang Ching-min won the first Baller of the Week award in his career Monday for leading TB to two victory last week. With the wins, TB shook off the slumping start and crawled back to above .500 with a 4-3 record.

Yang averaged 24.5 points and 4.5 rebounds last week and is currently the second leading scorer in the league at 22 points per game. The 190cm forward/guard said experience of last year's Jones Cup helped him mature a lot.

He received 19 points in the ballot and beat out Yulon center Tseng Wen-ting, who had 11 points.
