The single elimination round started with a pair of games on Monday. Hubei only made it because the student team was not eligible for the playoffs and they lost in the first game 102-71 to Xinjiang, which got a rare offensive outburst from Chen Mingling. Liu Jiacen and Shanxi edged Beijing 66-60 in the other game. On Tuesday, Zhang Zhiting and Shanghai defeated Hebei 74-61 in the first game. Wan Jiyuan and Dong Keer had good games for Zhejiang, but Chang Chi-Fang and Guangdong still won 89-78.
