Brampton A's Rebound with Win over Windsor

November 19, 2013 - National Basketball League of Canada (NBL Canada) - Orangeville A's News Release

Brampton, Ontario. - The Brampton A's snapped a two game losing streak in a 105-103 victory over the Windsor Express, bringing their record to 5-2.

With 2.2 seconds left Jameson Tipping scored and drew the foul to put the A's up one before walking to the foul line, and making the shot to give The A's a 105-103 lead. The Express would have two opportunities to get a last second buzzer beater, but would come up short after a lob pass to Stefan Bonneau would roll off the rim as time expired.

Tipping would finish the game with 13pts and 7rbs, with help from leading scorer Cedric Moodie (19pts and 7 assists) and Flenard Whitfield who tacked up his first double-double of the season with 18pts and 12rbs.

Whitfield had key baskets and defensive stops down the stretch. He brought a certain spark that The A's needed. Coach David Magley couldn't have been happier with how his big man played.

"Flenard is a warrior. He's just a tough strong kid and we've been getting banged around a bit, I felt we needed a different toughness in the paint."

Coach Magley made a big change with his starting line up, inserting Flenard Whitfield, Steven Idlet and Jesse Tipping to the starting line up with Jameson Tipping and Jordan Hamilton. The change was an opportunity for the second unit to continue their strong play.

"Over the last few games, our second unit has been very good. The thought was to change it up and let our starters wait for a little bit. I knew my starters would come in ready. I was just trying to get a different look after three games in three days."

The A's had an all around game, getting 26pts from the bench, 46pts in the paint, 16pts on second chance opportunities and 34pts off turnovers.

The A's will next take on the Ottawa SkyHawks Thursday November 21st, at 7PM at the Powerade Centre.
