T1: Heading’s Taichung arrests skid, continues woes of Tiongson’s Taoyuan


Taichung Wagor weathered an early Caelan Tiongson explosion before Jordan Heading took over late, taking a 101-74 win to snap its skid in the 2021-22 T1 League season, Sunday at National Taiwan University of Sport Gymnasium.

Despite Tiongson putting up 19 points in the first half, the Leopards were behind 40-49 to end the first 24 minutes of action.

The Suns dropped 30 points in the third quarter to blow the game wide open and gain a 79-58 lead.

It was all Taichung in the final frame with Heading scoring nine of his 22 points during that span.

Heading shot 9-of-17 shooting from the field with four rebounds and two steals.
