This result is expected but it’s now official: Taiwan NT will meet South Korea’s Sinsegae Coolcat in the women’s final of the 2010 William Jones Cup tournament.

In the Sunday cross-over semifinals, Korea thumped Kazakhstan 106-33 and Taiwan also showed no mercy against Taiwan University All-Stars with a 103-38 rout.

Korea’s Youn Yun-ah tallied 40 points and 16 rebounds and Kim Ji-hyun was even better with a triple-double -- 28 points, 10 boards and 10 assists. Park Ha-na added 23 points and 9 rebounds.

Ma Yi-hung led Taiwan NT with 16 points while Liu Chun-yi, who only had two points against Korea in the Saturday loss, had 15. Liu Chia-wei was the only player on Taiwan University All-Stars to score in double-digit, finishing the game with 19 points.
