SUNTEX shot to the top of the Division A1 basketball standings and staked their title claims with a 98-77 triumph over Fukien at MacPherson Stadium last night after completing their league fixtures. Suntex now have 15 points but their fate lies in the hands of Seapower, who play championship contenders Regal in the curtain closer of the season at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium on Tuesday. Second season campaigners Regal, with 14 points, can clinch the title by beating Seapower in their final game. ''We played a good game tonight but unfortunately we will have to depend on Seapower to finish the job for us,'' said Suntex coach Cheung Tai-wing. Tony Dunkin and Dexter Boney, who are scheduled to fly out today, finished their first season in Hong Kong on a high note with 38 and 27 points for Suntex respectively. Both of them have turned down offers to play in the Super Commercial Cup starting this week and have chosen to return to the United States for team try-outs. Fukien found it hard to cope without star centre Jose Slaughter, who was sitting out a one-game suspension for fighting with Seasonal's Ng Chu-yip last Tuesday, and only offered Suntex token resistance. Suntex opened up a 15-4 advantage after six minutes and never looked back, pulling away to lead 47-32 at half-time. Boney captured the admiration of the fans with a slam dunk exhibition which saw Suntex building up a mammoth 26-point margin. to lead 71-45 seven minutes into the second period.
