Preliminary-round action of the annual University Basketball Association tournament commenced at the Fu Jen Catholic University in Sinjhuang on Wednesday when the hosts topped the defending champions from National Taiwan Normal University 84-78.

Point guard Chou Tzu-hua led the scorers with 17 points for Fu Jen, who enjoyed a tremendous home-court advantage in front of a packed house as they led from the early minutes all the way to the final buzzer.

National Taiwan Normal trailed by as many as 13 points in the second half. They rallied to within four points of Fu Jen, before falling a little short in the fourth quarter to lose the game by six points.

Chou was at his best when it counted most for Fu Jen, as 13 of his game-high 17 points came in the final quarter to help prevent National Taiwan Normal from turning the tide.

“I will try to keep my emotions under control,” Chou said.

He has a history of losing his cool, which last season led to a season-ending suspension.

Wednesday’s other results: National Dong Hwa University 69, National Kaohsiung Normal University 60; Mingdao University 93, National Taiwan Sports University 78; National Taiwan University of Arts 89, Diwan University 68; National Taiwan College of Physical Education 84, Taipei Physical Education College 79; Chinese Culture University 73, Hsing Wu College 61.
