Hurricanes Halt London Lightning Win Streak with Impressive Win
The London had been streaking across the National Basketball League of Canada, racking up 12 wins in a row, but stopped there when they arrived in Halifax on Sunday.
The Hurricanes blew the Lightning away with a commanding 131-103 win over the defending NBLC champs. Antoine Mason attacked the Lightning defence all game, finishing with a game-high 32 points on 11-20 shooting. He also had seven rebounds and three steals for the night. Mason's stellar guard play was backed up by strong front-court play from CJ Washington, 23 points, 10 rebounds and Billy White, 20 points, 15 rebounds.
The Hurricanes got great production out of much of their squad, including Cliff Clinkscales, Mike Pool and Renaldo Dixon. A great crowd showed up for the NBLC Finals rematch at Scotiabank Centre with a season-high attendance of more than 3,100. Sunday's game was sponsored by Eastlink and Killam Apartment REIT.
The Hurricanes hit the road for the end of the month. They'll play the Magic in Moncton on Saturday, Jan. 27 and then the Storm in Charlottetown on Sunday, Jan. 28.
