    JORDAN Heading missed all of his six shots from deep but Nagasaki Velca fought from 17 points down to shock the Kagawa Five Arrows in overtime, 90-81, Saturday in the 2022-23 Japan B.League second division at Nagasaki Prefectural Gymnasium.

    The Fil-Aussie gunner still had nine points, six assists, and four rebounds to make up for that paltry shooting and help Nagasaki earn a win in its home debut and rise to 2-1.

    Matt Bonds led the Velca with 20 points, seven rebounds, four steals, and two assists including the game-tying layup that made it 81-all with 11 seconds left before they blanked the Five Arrows in the extra frame.

    Roosevelt Adams, though, still isn't with Kagawa for this game as it slid to a 1-2 record.

    Meanwhile, Greg Slaughter finally made his debut for Rizing Zephyr Fukuoka in its duels against Ehime Orange Vikings at Teriha Sekisui House Arena this weekend.
