Jack Animam had a solid showing as Shih Hsin University Tigers stayed undefeated with a 74-59 win over University of Taipei in the University Basketball Association on Sunday night at the SHU Gym in Taiwan.
The former National University Lady Bulldogs center tallied double-double 16 points and 12 rebounds to go along with three assists and three steals as the Tigers improved to 7-0 heading into the Christmas break.
Lin Die led the Tigers with a double-double of 21 points and 14 rebounds along with three steals, and two assists, while Li Yinchen added 10 points, five boards, four assists, and three steals.
Unlike in their previous matches, the Tigers created separation from University of Taipei in the second period to establish a 37-25 halftime edge. But their opponents showed some life in the third to trim the deficit to 49-52.
Home team Shih Hsin University, however, went for the kill in the fourth quarter with a 22-point finishing kick to secure the lopsided victory over the powerhouse University of Taipei.
Wu Caiting ended up with 12 points and four rebounds, while Chen Zihua had 10 in the losing cause for the University of Taipei.
The league-leading Shih Hsin University will have a lengthy break before plunging back to action on January 21, 2021 where they will face the National Taiwan Normal University./ASC, WDJ
