    Jordan Heading led the way for Taichung with 23 points.

    JORDAN Heading capped a big game by draining the game-sealing free throws as Taichung Wagor Suns stretched their win streak to three with a 99-92 conquest of New Taipei CTBC DEA in the T1 League at Xinzhuang Gymnasium.

    The Gilas Pilipinas guard made up for his miscue in the final minute by cooly sinking his freebies with 3.0 seconds left, saving the day for the visitors after they nearly lost a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter.

    Taichung led, 95-85, with less than three minutes remaining when New Taipei staged a furious rally, with Abassi's three with 40.5 seconds left cutting the lead down to five, 97-92.
