T1: Another Tiongson double-double goes for naught as Taoyuan dealt 3rd straight loss

Caelan Tiongson posted another monster line but it was not enough to arrest Taoyuan’s skid in the 2021-22 T1 League season, receiving a 113-132 beatdown at the hands of Tainan TSG, Saturday at Chia Nan University of Pharmacy and Science Shao Tsung Gymnasium.

Tiongson was once again solid, delivering 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting with 17 rebounds, three assists, a steal, and a block.

Leading 67-64 at the half, the Leopards offense suddenly crumbled in the third canto, putting up just 15 points while the Ghosthawks’ continued to be on full throttle, racking up 32 to gain a double-digit lead.

Tainan finished the game by having a 36-point quarter, putting up the highest points ever scored in the first season of the league so far.

Marcus Gilbert led the Ghosthawks with 41 points on 17-of-23 shooting from the field with 22 rebounds and eight assists.

Five other Tainan players scored in double-figures as the team shot a whopping 56.1-percent from the field.

Charles Garcia got 24 points and eight rebounds; Jordan Chatman had 19 points and nine rebounds; both Liu Jenhao and Negus Webster-Chan chipped in 13 points apiece; while Chang Weihsiang added 10 points.

Tainan, who also defeated Taoyuan, 83-114, six days ago, went up to 2-3 while dropping the Leopards to 1-5.

Troy Williams paced the Leopards with 38 points, going 14-of-29 from the field. Cheng Wei got 13 points while Du Yucheng and Tsai Yangming had 11 points apiece.

Tiongson and Taoyuan look to snap their skid when they face Jordan Heading and Taichung on January 9.
