It was a quick turnaround for all of the teams as the second round was played on Sunday.
It ended up being an all-domestic battle in Guangdong, allowing Huang Sijing to take center stage and lead the hosts to a 75-64 win over Shandong. Henan was able to grab a win in Shanghai because there was nobody to stop Chiney Ogwumike. Bayi came back and edged Sichuan 72-71 as they took advantage of the rule limiting Stefanie Dolson’s minutes to seize control during the time with only local players on the court.

Beijing beat Shenyang 85-72 as they have decided to await the arrival of Sylvia Fowles and not field a temporary foreign player. Battles of foreign players seem to be rare in the early part of the season, but there was one in Liaoning albeit with players in different positions. Wu Di teamed with Jewell Loyd as Shanxi got the win over Kelsey Bone, Wang Chenchen, and company 77-72. There was one other such encounter in Xinjiang as the hosts beat Heilongjiang 69-64.
