Anderson's 35 Leads Mill Rats Over Storm
(Summerside, PE): Anthony Anderson's 35 points in three quarters lead the Saint John Mill Rats over the Summerside Storm 106 to 90 at Eastlink Arena.
The Mill Rats led 18-17 after a tight first quarter, but away in the second when Anderson got hot. They held a 52-35 halftime lead. In the third quarter the Mill Rats blew the game open, leading 86-52 going into the fourth when both teams emptied their bench.
This was the Mill Rats third straight road win, and third straight win against a team with a winning record. Saint John's record improves to 3-3 and Summerside drops to 3-2.
Anthony Anderson shot 13-18 from the field en route to the 35 points near the end of the third quarter. Centre Antoine Tisby turned in a workmanlike 20 points and 10 rebounds in the paint, while Marc Egerson added 10. Julian Allen led the Storm with 21 points.
The Mill Rats road swing continues tomorrow night as the Mill Rats travel to the Metro Centre to face the Halifax Rainmen. On Sunday they will be in Moncton to play the Miracles in their NBL Canada home opener. Visit www.nblcanada.ca 0yLSAVKYVXLBi6pIm1yv2E] to watch the games live on the internet.
