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.

The Jersey Express believes they have the 2015-2016 ABA Rookie of the Year.

'Blades' every movement oozes confidence. He backs it...   [read more]

As you can read here down, Andre Muse (6'5''-G-86, college: Quincy) of the Chicago Steam is the winner of ABA Most Valuable Player Award for 2015-2016 season. This is what ABA Co-Founder Joe Newman stated to Usbasket.com about this player: "The ABA is loaded with talent. There are at least 30 players in the league that should be in the NBA or at least the D-League and any one of them could have been named MVP.
