The 2010-11 CBA season has started and the Qingdao Double Star Eagles are hoping to improve on last year’s less than stellar performance. In the first game of this season, Qingdao defeated the favored Liaoning Panpan Hunters 101 to 93. Newcomer Charles Gaines scored 33 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for the Eagles while ex-Shanghai Shark Li Gen threw in 21 points, 4 rebounds and 7 assists. Qingdao’s team leader Li Guang was back after missing all of last season with an injury, playing 19 minutes but scoring no points. Liaoning’s high scorer was He Tianju with 20 points. Liaoning’s only foreign player, Chris Richard, contributed 17 points, 16 rebounds and 5 blocks in a losing effort for the Panpan Hunters.
