T1: Heading fires five treys as Taichung streak snapped by New Taipei


Taichung Wagor saw its two-game winning streak in the 2021-22 T1 League season snapped following an 85-95 loss at the hands of New Taipei CTBC, Saturday at National Taiwan University of Sport Gymnasium.

Jordan Heading had himself a game, firing 17 points on five treys with two steals.

Behind a fiery first half from Mohammad Al Bachir Gadiaga — who had 17 points in the first half, DEA held a 54-42 lead against the Suns.

Though Taichung was able to rally back, gaining a 68-66 lead early in the final frame, Marlon Johnson took charge in the final frame, scoring eight of his 23 points to close out the game.

Johnson also had 12 rebounds, five assists, and three steals for New Taipei, who went up to 4-3 in the standings.

Naturalized Taiwanese Gadiaga tallied 20 points, five rebounds, five assists, and two steals while Thai import Chanatip Jakrawan added 13 points, four rebounds, and three blocks.

Also finishing in double-digits for New Taipei are Lin Pingsheng (15 points) and Cleanthony Early (14).

Former Northport import Prince Ibeh was plagued with fouls all game long, finishing with just five points in 15 minutes.

Supporting Heading was Sani Sakakini with 16 points and 13 rebounds. Alonzo Gee and Cheng Chinghuan added 15 and 14 points, respectively, as Taichung dropped to 2-3 in the standings.

Heading and Taichung will next face Taiwan Beer on Sunday at 3:00PM.
