Korea vs. Kazakhstan
The two countries shared some similarities. Both weren't able to send the best players here due to the national championship was held at the same time. Despite of never winning a single match in the preliminary round, they didn't lose confidence, and both were extremely keen for a victory. Korea struck firstly to control the pace. Kazakhstan team was not quite used to the fast attack and was left behind badly in the first period. In the second period, Kazakh team strengthened the guard section, taking the man to man defense tactics to resolve several Korean threatening shots. At the same time, their forwards and centrals kept on scoring. No.15 Bolat delivered five 2-points, helping Kazakhstan to narrow the score gap by over 10 points at the end of first half.

Hong Kong China vs. Mongolia

Aiming to the final, Mongolia swept Hong Kong China with the score of 106:67. 4 Mongolian boys gave the double-double performance and got all the free throws in. Although losing the game, Hong Kong China team performed better in the 3-points, 'Mongolia guards are so tall and strong, we have to focus more on the shootings outside the painted area.' Hong Kong China team coach Siu Wing Ho said, 'We learnt a lot from this championship, especially when facing a tough rival. The emotion control is of crucial importance, and our players need more practice.'

Chinese Taipei vs. China
In the 5th Asian University Men's Basketball Championship, Chinese Taipei was defeated by China in the final. Today, the old rivals met again. This time, Chinese Taipei totally dominated the game and revenged over China by 124:50. All Chinese Taipei starting five players got double scores, especially No.7 Po-Yu Tseng (183-G-96), who only played 19 minutes, but made 7 out of 9 balls, all free throws in, 3 assists without a single personal foul or turnout, which was an amazing record in this championship. With 3 major players injured, China team did not showed their best performance. 'We are not satisfied but we accept the result, Chinese Taipei team is really brilliant.' said team coach Lin Xiaolin. Finally Chinese Taipei paved their way to the final. 'We've been practiced intensively for the last three months and we deserve all the victories. We are confident to keep the winning steak and kiss the gold medal.' Chinese Taipei main coach Parker Charles Henry said.
Tomorrow was the last day of the championship. All of the final four teams had encountered their opponents in the preliminary round, so they knew each other's advantage and disadvantage, and were better prepared than the first match. The final matches would be more fascinating.
