T1: Heading, Taichung spoil Scharer’s New Taipei debut


Jordan Heading and Taichung Wagor dominated New Taipei, 116-97, while spoiling the debut of Fil-Am Avery Scharer in the 2021-22 T1 League season, Saturday night at National Taiwan University of Sport Gymnasium.

Scharer, a 6-foot-2 combo guard, was signed by CTBC DEA last March 17. However, his 22-point, seven-rebound, and seven-assist effort went for naught as the Suns’ firepower proved to be too much for them.

After trailing by two to end the half, Suns turned things around to start the second half with a 32-17 rally led by Heading — who scored half of his 13 points in the third — and Sani Sakani that gave them an 89-76 advantage.

Come the final frame, Taichung made sure that there would be no comebacks as the lead ballooned by as much as 24, 111-87, and eventually took the victory.

Heading with 13 points and three rebounds while Sani Sakani paced Taichung with 33 points, 15 rebounds, and eight assists.

Anthony Tucker added 23 points while shooting 86-percent from off-the-bench duties.

With the win, Taichung (13-8) overtook New Taipei (13-9) for second in the T1 Table.

Ting Shengju and Su Yichin also scored double digits for the Suns with 14 and 10 points, respectively.

New Taipei was led Marlon Johnson’s game-high 37 points. New Taipei’s bench also struggled with only nine points all throughout the ball game.

KG Canaleta has yet to play for Taichung. The former PBA star was signed by the team last week.

Up next for Taichung is Taoyuan tomorrow still at the same venue.
