Bandar Seri Begawan - Brunei born international star Wu Chun yesterday contributed 13 points for LeApple basketball team but couldn't helped his team to victory as they fell to Auto Expents 56-54 in overtime at the Aewon Cup Basketball Tournament.
Wu Chun who took a rest after sustaining a bit of cramp after regular time, in an interview with Bulletin, said: "It was a tight game but if I can continue to play, the result might be different."
Wu Chun, the owner of Fitness Zone also expressed: "It's great to be able to compete in a basketball game with all my friends. I haven't been in competitive basketball for almost eight years. It was quite an exhausting comeback but it's worth it."
LeApple team that comprised mostly veteran national players managed to come back to take the lead in the third quarter but the resilient Auto Expents managed to keep the game tight and were tied at 49 a piece with just 50 seconds left.
In the last 10 seconds, Auto Expent were leading but a last ditch shot by No 4 Soon Chin Long put LeApple into overtime.
In overtime, the younger Auto Expent team came up with a number of big shots to win the match-up.
