Kinmen Kaoliang and Taiwan Beer emerged the top dogs from this weekend’s Super
Basketball League matchups, before all seven teams take time off for the winter break.
In yesterday’s thriller, Bank of Taiwan edged out Pauian Archiland by one point to win 103-102 at Taipei’s Tianmu Gymnasium.
In the final seconds of a see-saw final quarter, Bank of Taiwan’s American forward Angel Nunez drained a three-pointer to seal the win.
Nunez, a former standout at the University of Southern Florida, had a game-high of 39 points and pulled down nine rebounds.
He was on a shooting streak, hitting 15 of 24 attempts, including four of seven in three-point range, while compatriot and teammate Joseph Taylor added 20 points and nine rebounds.
Guard Chang Bo-sheng contributed 15 points and forward Lin Ren-hong put up 14 to help Bank of Taiwan rack up their fifth win of the season. [FULL STORY]
