The 30-year-old, who has been capped once for Argentina's national team, has struggled for opportunities since joining Boca from Mexico's Cruz Azul in January 2019.
"Everyone on the team has to contribute in some way," she noted.
"I feel quite happy that we finally have games to play," said Inner Mongolia's center Li Yueru, who finished with 28 points and 14 rebounds in a 44-point rout of Hebei.
"We can feel that everything is fully prepared beforehand with an aim of offering us a safe environment to enjoy games," said Shao, who had joined Sichuan before the season.

In other games in Chengdu, after a goalless first half, Beijing Renhe broke the deadlock in the 57th minute to claim a 2-0 victory over Suzhou Dongwu. Taizhou Yuanda defeated Inner Mongolia Zhongyou 2-0.
Shanxi took over early in the second quarter, constantly attacking the basket through Fu and Liu in the paint, but Hebei soon charged back with a 9-0 run. Shanxi piled up a 43-38 lead at the break.
Henan whittled away Shanxi's lead to three points through an 8-0 spurt. Then Wu made a layup and Yu Dong fired a three-pointer, snapping Shanxi's skid. Zhang Xianyuan led another Henan fightback, and after her jumper, Henan turned the game around at 56-54 with 1:57 left in the third quarter, but Shanxi managed to keep a slim advantage at 59-58 into the last period.
After both exchanged serves in the following two games, the former world No. 23 then delivered a dominant performance in the tie break to seal the first set.
"But I told my players it is the utmost honor to play for the national team," he added.
