Bank of Taiwan were eliminated from SBL post-season contention after a one-point loss
to Kinmen Kaoliang at the Banciao Stadium in New Taipei City last night.
The Bankers’ big Canadian center Liam McMorrow put up an attempted buzzer-beater when trailing by one at the end of the game, but his field goal careened around the rim and fell outside of the basket, leaving his side down 92-91.
Both teams fought a close battle most of the way, with the score level at 42-42 at halftime.
It was the last match for the Bankers, who finished with seven wins and 22 losses for the season, last among the seven teams.
The playoffs are to start next month without them.1
US starting forward Eugene Phelps of Kinmen Kaoliang led the way with a double-double performance, netting 25 points to go along with 14 rebounds.
With the victory, the Kinmen club will end the regular season in sixth place, despite having a game to play. [FULL STORY]
