SEOUL – No Dai’Ja Turner? No problem for Daegu’s girls basketball team, which remained unbeaten at 5-0 with two weekend wins, at Seoul Foreign and Yongsan.

The Warriors’ big worry at season’s beginning was how to overcome the loss of Turner, their big presence in the paint the last two seasons. But sophomore Jya Van, coach Jonathan Van’s daughter, has filled in well, averaging eight points and 13 rebounds in five games, all wins.

The team that beat the Warriors in last year’s Far East D-II final, Zama, also stayed unbeaten, winning their second game 57-42 over American School In Japan. Reigning D-II Most Valuable Player Chloe Sterling had 21 points and backcourt mate Kirari Smith had 18.

On the boys side, Humphreys’ stayed unbeaten at 5-0, also with two weekend wins. Junior Gregory led the way in a 66-24 win at Osan and a 49-27 win over Yongsan; Gregory averaged 18 points in the two games.
