Halifax Top Performers

It came down to another last second basket for the Halifax Rainmen as Lawrence Wright tipped in the game-winner with just 0.3 seconds left in the victory against the Quebec Kebs last night.  Halifax won their sixth straight as the Rainmen are on the road for back-to-back road games over the holidays.

The Kebs held the Rainmen to just 36.3% shooting on the night but also struggled on their own end with their 41% shooting.  Former Halifax Rainmen centre, James "Boo" Jackson, had a double double on the night with 17 pts and 15 boards.  The Rainmen's current leading scorer, Lawrence Wright, finished with 11 points including the last second game-winner.  Halifax now sits in second place in the NBL with a 9-4 record.

"We drew a play up for Tyrone to get the ball on the post because he had an advantage down low," Robinson said seconds after the horn sounded. "He took a good shot but it kinda fell short but Lawrence was there to clean it up and put it in."
