Taishan High School’s 190cm senior forward Chou Yi-hsiang was considered one of two brightest stars in Taiwan’s high school ball this year. The other one is 194cm sophomore forward Hu Lung-mao of Song-shan High School. Chou helped Tai-shan to its best finish in school history (4th place) while Hu helped Song-shan to win two straight titles.
Chou has an explosive first-step and jumping ability. He can shoot and dash. Pretty much a do-it-all player in high school basketball, Chou was seen as the second coming of Chen Hsin-an, one of Taiwan’s top players in recent years.
