More Fists of Fury: Taiwanese Nats Get a Stint in SoCal

Taiwan NT 2-0 in SoCal Summer Pro League
July 10, 2005 - by Chris Wang

Taiwan NT, which entered Southern California Summer Pro League as Frontline Sports, won both of their games and finished a month-long U.S. training tour in a high note.

Taiwan edged Senegal NT 87-85 on a winning shot by Yang Yu Min (183-G-79) with 3.5 seconds left on July 9th. Today Taiwan NT beat NBA Pro 110-104. The REAL Frontline Sports will take over the remaining schedule in the summer league, while Taiwan NT heads back to Taiwan to prepare for the upcoming Jones Cup.

Yang Yu Min (183-G-79), who struggled quite a bit in the first half of the 2004-05 SBL season, kept his hot-hand going by scoring 53 points in two games. Center Wu Dai-hao, guards Chou Shih-yuan and Lee Hsueh-lin also played very well.

Taiwan NT finished a month-long training tour in Los Angeles, where they played with local college teams and mix-up teams before entering SoCal Summer Pro League.

In the second-half of the year, Taiwan NT will compete in three events--Jones Cup in Taipei, East Asian games in Macao and Asian Championship in Qatar.
