Breaking down what happened in the National Basketball League of Canada on Tuesday night.

Quebec Top Performers

London Top Performers
DeAnthony Bowden - 17 pts, 2 reb, 2 ast, 3 stl

It looks like a three-way race at the top of the standings between the Halifax Rainmen, London Lightning and Quebec Kebs.  The London Lightning who held the top spot in the NBL for most of the season, dropped just their second game in nine games against the Quebec Kebs yesterday.  Ralphy Holmes, two-time NBL Player of the Week, led the Kebs with 23 points.  Quebec held the Lightning to just 36% shooting on the night and dominated London on the boards 64-45.

Gabe Freeman was the lone bright spot for the Lightning, as he continued his double double streak with his 10 points and 13 rebounds.  The Lightning are now 12-4 on the season, Halifax is right behind London in the standings with a 10-4 record.

“We didn’t play well and we didn’t shoot the ball well,” explained Coach Michael Ray Richardson on his teams performance. “The five days off really hurt us this game. It was one of those games. We played pretty good early but we couldn’t get over the hump.”
