Five of the seven Highlanders scored in double figures, led by Chad Frazier (23) and Shaquille Keith (21). Anthony Walker (19 pts, 18 rebs) and Michael Rostampour (14 rebs, 10 pts) had double-doubles for Cape Breton. Halifax had a win, a loss, and a snowstorm postponement this week. Although the Hurricanes took a commanding win on Saturday night against Moncton, they lost to an undermanned Cape Breton squad the previous night. Billy White averaged 24.5 points per game and 12 rebounds per game this week; leading Halifax in both categories. Clifford Clinkscales, the “King of Assists,” added 14 more dishes this week. The Island Storm’s first home game of the week, scheduled to host Halifax, was postponed due to a blizzard warning. However, the Storm did take a much-needed 115-113 Sunday afternoon victory over the Saint John Riptide, with Jahii Carson scoring 29 points, Terry Thomas with 24 points, and Tirrell Baines with 20. A.J. Stewart was the team’s top rebounder with nine boards, while Nick Okorie had a team-high eight assists. The Titans took one victory in three games this week, with Ricky Tarrant leading the way with an 18 ppg average; Tarrant also averaged 5.0 rpg and 5.0 assists per game. Cavell Johnson’s 10 ppg also included 1.3 blocks per game. A.J. Davis was Kitchener- Waterloo’s top rebounder this week, with 7.0 rpg. The Lightning picked up two lopsided victories against the Niagara River Lions, padding the Bolts’ considerable lead in the NBL Canada’s Central Division. In the wins, the scoring was led by Ryan Anderson (25.5 ppg) and Royce White (21.5 ppg), while White had 11.5 rebounds per game. In the second contest, White picked up his third triple-double of the NBL Canada season, scoring 21 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. The Miracles’ only game this week was a Saturday evening 109-98 loss to the division-leading Halifax Hurricanes. In the loss, Melvin Johnson III scored 32 points – nearly one-third of Moncton’s scoring output that night. Tim Mitchell pulled down 10 rebounds and blocked two shots. Niagara went 0-for-2 this week, both games at home, and both losses against the London Lightning. With injuries decimating the team, Marcus Lewis was one of the few bright spots this week, as he averaged 28.5 ppg in the two losses. Kirk Williams Jr followed up with 20 ppg. Niagara has been held to less than 100 points in their last seven games; they were 1-6 during that stretch. The National Basketball League of Canada Weekly Report Page 2 of 19

Orangeville A’s Head Coach: Brandon Lesovsky Home Arena: Athlete Institute asbasketball.ca Two losses this week, including an overtime collapse against Windsor, pulled the Orangeville A’s closer to losing their secondplace standing in the NBL’s Central Division. Justin Moss was one of the few bright spots for the A’s, as he averaged 24.5 points per game this week. Alex “Superman” Johnson averaged 17.0 ppg and 8.5 assists per game. Moss also had 6.6 rebounds per game, just a shade more than teammate Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson (6.0 rpg). Saint John Riptide Head Coach: Rob Spon Home Venue: Harbour Station sjriptide.ca The Saint John Riptide are still holding on to second place in the NBL’s Central Division, but a Sunday afternoon 115-113 loss to the third-place Island Storm put a bump in the Riptide’s road. In the loss, Anthony Anderson finished with a double-double of 30 points and 11 assists, while Brian Addison added a double-double of 18 points and 14 rebounds. Windsor Express Head Coach: Bill Jones Home Venue: WFCU Centre Alt venue: Caessars Windsor windsorexpess.ca After struggling for most of the season, the Windsor Express picked up three wins this week, including their fourth-ever “Clash at Caeasrs” annual game at Caesars Windsor Casino. Although veterans Quinnel Brown and Warren Ward led Windsor with 19 and 17 points per game, respectively, newly-acquired Juan Pattillo put up 15.3 ppg in his first three games for the Express; he also led Windsor with 9.3 rebounds per game. Game reports compiled via team press releases, and from articles appearing in newspapers from the teams’ home locations.
