Jeff Jones had 20 points and 20 rebounds as Bank of Taiwan upset Yulon 93-82 Friday to grab its first win of the season after losing forward Hsu Chih-chang for the season.

A MRI report confirmed that Hsu blew his right knee ACL last week and will have to sit out the season.

BOT, the only winless team entering this week, had its best game of the season. Jones dished out five assists and shooter Chen Shun-hsiang was 6 of 8 from three and had his season-high 23 points.

Byron Allen had 24 points and 15 boards to lead Dacin to a 88-78 win over Pure Youth, its fifth straight win. PY lost three consecutive.
