Both series continued on Friday. After an even first half, Nneka Ogwumike and Guangdong seized control of the game, keeping Shao Ting and Beijing from getting back into the game with a 96-82 final margin. Xu Chenyan and Jiangsu actually came back while the rules were not in their favor, forcing overtime, but Bayi’s inside-outside duo of Sun Mengran and Li Meng proved to be too much in the end in a 90-83 win. Both lower seeds now must win at home starting Monday to extend their seasons.
