Even a double-double of 21 points, 19 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 blocks by Eric Moreland did not help to save the game for Loongs.

Beijing D. – Guangsha L. 93-116

Very expected game when 10th ranked Ducks (24-22) were smashed by sixth ranked Guangsha Lions (27-20) in Beijing 116-93 on Monday. Guangsha Lions made 23-of-27 free shots (85.2 percent) during the game. Guangsha Lions outrebounded Ducks 47-36 including a 37-23 advantage in defensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists. Ducks were plagued by 25 personal fouls down the stretch. The former international center Jinqiu Hu (210-97) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 31 points and 14 rebounds. American point guard Kay Felder (175-95, college: Oakland) contributed with 24 points and 7 assists for the winners. Five Guangsha Lions players scored in double figures. American point guard Jonathan Gibson (188-87, college: NM State) replied with 27 points and 5 rebounds and the former international point guard Shuo Fang (190-90) added 11 points and 8 assists in the effort for Ducks. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to get some rest. Guangsha Lions moved-up to fifth place, which they share with Shandong H. Loser Ducks keep the tenth position with 22 games lost. Guangsha Lions will face Loongs (#15) in Taiyuan in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Ducks will play on the road against Sturgeons (#16) in Jinjiang and hope to win that game.
