Halifax Impresses in Victory over Saint John
The Halifax Rainmen put in one of their most impressive performances of the season Thursday evening as they defeated the Saint John Mill Rats 124-102. The win improves Halifax's record to 4-3 on the season.
Halifax came out of the gate strong with an eight point run, which helped the Rainmen finish the quarter up 27-18. The strong play continued throughout the first half, with Halifax carrying a 61-47 lead into the third. The Mill Rats closed the gap to as little as eight in the third, however the explosive offense of the Rainmen could not be stopped and Halifax would finish the third with a large 91-73 lead.
Justin Tubbs picked up a double double for the Halifax Rainmen, putting away 26 points and pulling down 11 rebounds. Anthony Anderson was Saint John's most effective player with 31 points and 7 assists.
The Halifax Rainmen are back in action again next Thursday, December 11th, at 7pm for a rematch against the Mill Rats in Saint John. We will return to the Scotiabank Centre on December 14th for a 2pm game against the Island Storm. Tickets are available at the Scotibank Centre box office, through Ticket Atlantic, or by visiting www.rainmenbasketball.ca.
