Hung Kang-chao scored 48 points in his final game in high school and led Song Shan High School to a 83-80 comeback victory over Nen-ren Houshold and Commercial Vocation High School to repeat as Taiwan high school’s boys basketball champion Saturday.

Thanks to Hung’s championship-record offensive output, Song Shan overcame a 11-point third quarter deficit and rallied in the final period for the win, beating Nen-ren in a 2009 HBL (High School Basketball League) championship rematch.

Hung, a senior forward, made 17 of his 28 field goal attempts and 14 of 19 free-throws. He also grabbed 11 rebounds and had 4 steals and two blocked shots in 40 minutes. No other Song Shan player scored in double figures.

The defending champion which has been known for its tenacious man-to-man defense lived up to its nickname "the green shield, " forcing nine turnovers from Nen-ren in the fourth period and tied the game at 80 all with 23.9 seconds remaining before Hung made three of four free-throws to secure the win.

Nen-ren, which lost to Song Shan in the HBL championship game for the second consecutive year, was led by Wang Jen-chieh’s 25 points and 11 rebounds and point guard Chen Ying-chun’s 13 points, 9 rebounds and 11 assists.

In girls’ competition, Tamsui Vocation High School beat defending champion Pu Men High School for its first title in three years and the seventh title in school history. Tamsui surpassed Jinou Girls High School as the only seven-time champion in HBL girls’ competiton.

Tamsui forward Lin Yu-ting became the first player in history to win Freshman of the Year and the Most Valuable Player awards in the same season.
