“They call him the X Factor, but I thought Xavier Hansbro really was the X Factor today (Wednesday),” added Salerno. “He didn’t shoot the ball well (4-for-14 in field-goal attempts), but he came up with some huge rebounds late. “He had 12 boards (including seven defensive rebounds), and was a really huge part of this win.”
The Oshawa Power have named a new interim head coach after parting ways with former coach and NBA player, Mark Strickland. Former Duke Blue Devil captain, Robert Brickey, who played under Coach K in 1986-90 has taken over the head coaching duties. He has previous assistant coaching experience with North Carolina State University. The Power sit in second last place with a 6-13 record. Check out Brickey's throwback video from his days at Duke:
