Bank of Taiwan last night made it two wins in a row by dominating Kinmen Kaoliang in a 77-58 blowout at the Banciao Gymnasium in New Taipei City to close out a perfect 2-0 weekend on a high note.
Luke Nevill led a Banker attack against a vulnerable Kinmen Kaoliang interior defense — which was missing the service of big man Kyle Barone who was out with a knee injury — by connecting from short range on a 23-point, 18-rebound night. The Australian playmaker was well on his way to a double-20 effort before skipper Hung Chun-cheng pulled him off the floor for a good part of the fourth to rest his top gun.
Also starring was Chang “Trumpet” Po-sheng, who came off the Bankers’ bench with three three-pointers from downtown on a 15-point effort to pick up the scoring slack left by team captain Chen Hsuan-hsiang, who managed to score only four points, well below his season average of 10.3. [FULL STORY]
