1) Rashad Jones-Jennings served a one game suspension on Sunday after getting into a fight with Wu Tai-hao on Saturday. While I would never condone fighting, it was fun to watch a game between the two top teams in the league where both teams really cared about the outcome of the game. Too often the games in the SBL seem to be decided by the 2nd quarter. On a related note, Marcus Dove dominated Pure Youth on Sunday racking up a stat line of 25 points, 10 rebounds, 6 steals,and 6 blocks.
2) The Dacin Tigers replaced Keith Gayden quite unexpectedly. Taiwan Hoops reports that there are rumors that Gayden never got along with his teammates. Gayden was replaced by Alexus Foyle, familiar to SBL fans from his strong play last season with Taiwan Mobile. Gayden should be employed very soon, as his performance on the court in the SBL was pretty impressive at times.
3) Yulon is finally going to hire a foreign player! They will bring in Jason McCoy and Jermaine Dailey for tryouts this week. Time to go do some more research on these guys . . .
