January 3, 2018 - National Basketball League of Canada (NBL Canada) - Halifax Hurricanes

News Release

Cliff Clinkscales wasn't going to let his Halifax team fall below .500 as the Hurricanes improve to 7-6 on the season with a win on the road.

The Hurricanes pulled ahead in the fourth quarter to win a hotly contested game in Charlottetown against the Island Storm. The final score was 123-116.

Clinkscales finished the game with a double-double. His 11 assists helped get most of the Hurricanes roster involved in the offence and contributed his 10 points when he needed to.

Billy White also recorded a double-double, finishing with 23 points and pulling down 10 rebounds.

Antoine Mason continued his excellent play. He finished with a game-high 32 points, finding his buckets at the rim, free-throw line and 3-point arc.

To round out the excellent guard play, shooting-specialist Ta'Quan Zimmerman had a 17-point outing with nine of his points coming from beyond the arc.

Tyrone Watson returned to the Hurricanes active lineup on Sunday as well. He has 10 points and five rebounds in his return from injury.

The Hurricanes will head to Sydney on Friday, Jan. 5 to face their rival Cape Breton Highlanders. Cape Breton has won two of the three games against the Hurricanes so far this season.

They'll be home again in Halifax at the Scotiabank Centre on Jan. 12 against the Niagara River Lions and then Jan. 13 against the Storm.

Tickets are available at the Ticket Atlantic Box Office or online.
