Brampton A's a Perfect Ten

December 7, 2013 - National Basketball League of Canada (NBL Canada) - Orangeville A's News Release

Brampton, ON. The Brampton A's ended their 2 game skid and won their league leading 10th win against the Moncton Miracles, 124-88 at the Powerade Centre on Friday night, giving them a 10-4 record on the season.

The chilly temperature outside could not cool off the A's as they started the game with a blistering 13-0 run. Their streak could not be frozen, even after a timeout called by Moncton the A's continued their torrid pace and got to a 21-4 1st quarter lead by the NBL's previous player of the Week Cavell Johnson.

Johnson also controlled the paint, adding to his league leading blocks total with 2 for the game. It took NBL 3 pt shooting leader, Johnny Mayhane to slow the A's run with back to back threes. The A's got back on pace ending the quarter with a 35-20 lead.

The A's finished the half with a 61-42 lead, with the steady play of NBL's Coach of the Month David Magley's two point guard lineup. Coach Magley on his lineup change,"We have changed the starting line up probably 11 times in 14 games, tonight the goal was to get the ball movement quicker & use the entire court. Using two point guards at once seemed to just make sense."

The lineup change was very effective as The A's starting PG's Evaldas Zabas and Melvin Council had a combined 8 assists with only 1 turnover. The ball movement was contagious as the team had 30 total assists with their 48 field goals.

A's forward Jameson Tipping dominated all facets of the game. Tipping lead the A's with 21 pts and just missed a double double with 9 rebounds including 4 offensive, he also had 4 assists and 3 steals with 3 three pointers. Brampton power forward Flenard Whitfield had a double double with 17 points and 13 rebounds, his second game in a row with double digit boards.

Coach Magley on the teams overall effort, "Very unselfish performance, which made everything work, especially our offense". The Brampton A's will need to continue their unselfish play as they head to London on Sunday, December 8th to play the red hot two time defending champs, the London Lightning who have won 8 out of their 9 last games. The Brampton A's next home game is Saturday December 14th against the Ottawa SkyHawks.
