Arsenal Stand Ground Against Toros Late Charge 109 - 104
Anaheim, Calif., March 26, 2008 - Arsenal forward Ejike Ugboaja recorded a season high in rebounds on Wednesday night, when the Anaheim Arsenal (19-25) played host to the Austin Toros (27-15) at the Arena at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Ugboaja finished with 16 rebounds in the Arsenal's 109 - 104 victory, even out rebounding the Toros by himself at halftime 12 - 10.
Ugboaja commented after the game, "Rebounding is my game. I was so hyped up. I wanted 20, maybe next game." Ugboaja also added 10 points to his career night.
Austin center Ian Mahinmi led the Toros with 23 points.
The victory was the Arsenal's fifth win in a row and second in a row against a D-League division leader. In their five game winning streak, the Arsenal have defeated all three D-League division leaders, Dakota Wizards, Idaho Stampede, and now the Austin Toros.
"It was another good team win," said Arsenal head coach Reggie Geary. "Six players scored in double figures and we out rebounded the Toros by 15. Those two areas are why we're on a five game winning streak."
Anaheim's next game will be on Sunday, March 30th against the L.A. D-Fenders at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
