YULON LUXGEN DINOS
The Dinos are used to winning with four SBL championships in their trophy case. This will be their first appearance at an Asia League event and they’re ready to continue their winning tradition. The team is focused on building chemistry and playing together with a sense of urgency. As the top team after the regular season just a year ago, they’ll be building off experience as many of the same pieces from last year are back in place.
Yulon Dinos once again had a spectacular season last year as they recorded 19 wins and secured the top seed heading into the postseason for the fourth consecutive year. The team has no shortage of scoring power. Last season, they ranked second in the league in scoring, averaging 80.3 points per game.
Despite being eliminated in the playoffs last season, the team has a lot to look forward to. They have several strong pieces in place and a young coach who stepped in and led the team to the top position after the regular season. Coach Lee Chi-Yi has the Dinos play a fast-paced offense and unyielding defense that cause problems for any opponent.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Chou’s veteran teammate, Lu Cheng-Ju established himself as a household name this past year and stepped out of the shadow from his teammate. Last season, Lu averaged nearly 16 points per game and was named the SBL’s regular season MVP. He can hit jumpers or drive to the cup. His game is diverse and will give opponents all kinds of trouble.
The Dinos are also building up young talent, such as rising star Hu Kai-Hsiang. They know that Chou Shih-Yuan is the heart of the team, but there’s a need to develop new stars for Chou to pass the torch to. Hu averaged 11 points last year and looks poised to step up when the team needs him most.
