Sean Peter
(text from Christopher Pike) The Calgary Crush started a spectacular opening weekend with a 119-93 victory over the visiting Washington Rampage. The Crush busted out of the gate with a 15 point lead at halftime. With a great crowd supporting the Crush on opening night the Rampage could not overcome a huge deficit in the 4th quarter. John Riad (6'2''-G) led the Crush with 22 points on 8-13 shooting from the floor. Sean Peter (6'3''-G) also had a solid game with 19 points and Tyler Fidler (6'9''-G-89) caught fire from beyond the arc going 4-7 from deep. The Rampage could not overcome a strong team effort from the Crush despite 34 points from Alvin Snow (6'2''-G-81, college: E.Washington). The game was not without a great showing above the rim with a handful of eye popping alley oops and powerful dunks that ignited the crowd into a frenzy.
With the win the Crush start the season undefeated and provide a spark for an emerging basketball community in Calgary.
The evening after, the Calgary Crush finished an amazing opening weekend with a 113-110 victory over the visiting Washington Rampage. The Crush had a sizable 58-42 halftime lead but the Rampage slowly chipped away the lead late in the 4th quarter. The Rampage caught fire in the final minutes making the crowd a little nervous with only a few tics on the clock. Marcus Wright (6'4''-G/F, college: Evergreen St.) had a 38 point performance for the Rampage but it was Alvin Snow that rained down jump shots late in the 4th quarter making for a great finish.
The Crush had another strong team performance with 7 players in double digit scoring. Sean Peter led the way with another impressive all around game. SP finished with 20 points 7 rebounds and 3 Assists. Jordan Rose chipped in with 16 points and Duncan Milne (6'9''-F-86) backed up a solid double double Friday night with 15 points and 6 boards.
It was a successful weekend for the Crush. Not only did they go 2-0 but put on a great show for basketball fans in Southern Alberta.With the win the Crush stay undefeated and send a message to the rest of the American Basketball Association that winning basketball games north of the boarder is no walk in the snow.
