T1: Heading drops 28 points vs Brickman as Taichung stops Kaohsiung’s streak


Jordan Heading and Taichung Wagor scored their most impressive win in the 2021-22 T1 League season so far, routing league-leading Kaohsiung Familymart, 104-89, Friday evening at Kaohsiung Arena.

Riding a three-game winning streak entering the contest, the Suns never faltered all throughout the 48-minute contest.

Already up by 60-50 with eight minutes left in the third canto, the Suns went on a blistering 20-4 blast to blow the game wide open.

Heading instigated the Suns’ third quarter storm, scoring 13 of his 28 points in that frame.

The lead remained in double-figures until the final buzzer.

The 6-foot-2 Filipino-American guard ended the game shooting 7-of-10 from the field while dishing out four assists and grabbing three rebounds.

Sani Sakakini got a monster double-double as well with 31 points and 15 rebounds. Ting Shengju and Chen Chinghuan got 10 points each as well.

It was a frustrating game for the Aquas as they allowed the Suns to shoot 35 free throw attempts, converting on 29.

Taichung extended its winning streak to four games, going up to 6-5 in the standings. The Suns also dealt the Aquas their second loss in 11 games.

This is also Taichung’s second win in three tries over Kaohsiung.

Mindaugas Kupšas led Kaohsiung with 31 points and 21 rebounds.

Aquas locals Yu Huanya and Hu Longmao got 17 and 11 points, respectively, while Ferrakohn Hall chipped in 12 points.

Brickman, who was awarded the best import of the month citation by commissioner Rosa Chien, tallied 12 assists, seven points, and five rebounds.
