B2: Heading shows marksmanship in Nagasaki debut


Jordan Heading found his touch late, helping Nagasaki take an 88-77 win in its B.League Division II debut against Kumamoto, Saturday at Kumamoto Prefectural Gymnasium.

It was a dominant win for the Velca as it ran past the Volters, forcing their opponents to commit 20 turnovers that led to 26 fastbreak points.

Imports Pablo Aguilar and Matt Bonds added 18 and 17 points, respectively, while combining for 19 rebounds.

Kenji Matsumoto also added 12 points and five assists.

Terrance Woodbury paced Kumamoto with 20 points and 11 rebounds.

Over at Maeda Arena, Kobe Paras was a DNP in Altiri Chiba’s 85-83 win over the Aomori Wat’s.
