Donald Sloan
Santa Cruz W. - Erie Bay H. 96-95
The Erie BayHawks lost to the Santa Cruz Warriors 96-95 in a D-League game late tonight. The BayHawks trailed 96-95 with 29.3 seconds remaining in the game, but failed to convert on two last-second shots to pull out the victory. Henry Sims (6'10''-C-90, college: Georgetown) led the BayHawks (11-9) with 22 points and 12 rebounds. D.J. Kennedy (6'6''-G/F-89, agency: Interperformances, college: St.John's) added 15 points. Jeremy Tyler (6'10''-F-91, college: Louisville) had 15 points for the Warriors (14-7). Courtesy of: goerie.com

Sioux Falls S. - Texas L. 102-93
The Sioux Falls Skyforce defeated the Texas Legends 102-93 Saturday night. Sioux Falls never trailed and seemed sparked by the return of guard Donald Sloan (6'3''-G-88, college: Texas A&M) following a 10-day stint with the New Orleans Hornets as they won their third straight game. Sioux Falls (13-10) led 29-15 after the first quarter behind 10 points from Demtris Nichols. Sioux Falls led by 23 points (44-21) midway through the second quarter and went into halftime leading 52-34. Texas (11-10) struggled from the field in the first half as they only shot 26.7 percent (12-of-45). Sioux Falls increased the lead to 26 points (71-45) with just under seven minutes to go in the third quarter but Texas went on a 15-5 run to cut the deficit to 76-60 heading into the final quarter. Sioux Falls went ahead 82-60 following an alley-oop slam dunk by Miami HEAT assignee Dexter Pittman (6'10''-C-88, college: Texas) and appeared to have the game in hand. Texas would not go down quietly though as a 3-pointer by Darius Rice (6'10''-F-82, college: Miami, FL) cut the deficit to 10 points (95-85) with just over three minutes to go in the contest. Rice scored 18 points on six 3-pointers in the fourth quarter but it was not enough as Sioux Falls moved within 0.5 game of first place in the Central Division. Nichols continued his strong play with 26 points, six rebounds and four assists. Pittman finished with his third straight double-double (18 points, 12 rebounds) and Sloan had a solid home debut with 14 points, eight rebounds and eight assists. Mark Tyndale contributed eight points, nine rebounds and nine assists off the bench. Rice scored an NBA D-League season-high 39 points to go along with 11 rebounds. Chris Roberts (6'4''-G-88, college: Bradley) scored 19 points while Sean Singletary posted 14 points and seven rebounds. The Sioux Falls Skyforce defeated the Texas Legends 102-93 Saturday night.

Canton C. - Springfield A. 104-93
What a difference a night makes. After getting thoroughly outplayed during the final quarter and a half of Friday night's loss, it was the Charge with the finishing touch Saturday in a 104-93 win against the Springfield Armor at Memorial Civic Center. Charge forward Ryan Rossiter (6'9''-F/C-89, college: Siena) led a balanced effort in front of 3,070 fans, as Canton (14-10) gained a bit of revenge for a lackluster loss to the Armor (6-14) on Friday. 'I give credit to our guys,' Charge head coach Alex Jensen said. 'It's always hard to come back (the next night). They played hard and won, grinded it out.' Rossiter is the very-epitome of 'grinding it out.' The dirty-work forward registered his first double-double of the season with 19 points and 11 rebounds while setting a season high in points for the second straight night. Rossiter was one of six Canton players who scored in double figures, and he did all his damage in the first three quarters. The Charge actually went small in the fourth, playing Alex Ruoff at the power forward, to finish the game strong and avoid the turnover problems and general ugliness that plagued them Friday. After a quiet first three quarters, Charge center Micheal Eric (6'11''-F/C-88, college: Temple) was a terror on the boards in the fourth. He totaled nine points and seven boards in the quarter to finish with 11 points and 11 rebounds overall. His two straight putbacks - the first an authoritative jam - had the Charge up 91-78 with 6:09 left. 'For about two or three minutes, we didn't execute a play once. We took some bad shots,' Jensen said. 'But he kept that lead for us by rebounding. 'The problem with that is now I expect him to do that every game. I'll remind him that's what he's capable of.' Springfield is the best offensive rebounding team in the league, and the Armor pounded the Charge on the glass early. But Canton rectified the situation to the point of actually scoring more second-chance points (22 to 18) than the Armor. Rossiter scored 11 points in the game's first nine minutes and had a career-high (15) by the break. 'Kyle (Gibson), Jorge (Gutierrez) and all the guys really put me in good positions,' said the 6-foot-9 Rossiter. 'Most of them were kind of catch and shoot, because they broke down the defense and I was the beneficiary.' Ruoff's fourth and final 3-pointer of the first quarter - with 1.8 seconds left - had Canton up 30-28. The game stayed tight. Ben Uzoh's pull-up jumper with 4.2 seconds left in the half cut Springfield's deficit to 1. Gutierrez answered with a deep jumper at the buzzer to put the Charge up 51-48 at the half. Canton finally got some separation midway through the third. The Charge hit four straight jumpers, two of them from Gibson, to go up seven with 3:07 left. Ruoff, who finished with 16 points, hit a runner in the lane with 2.5 seconds left and the Charge led 76-68. The Armor never got closer than six in the final period. Gutierrez totaled 17 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, capping his night with a left-handed jam with 18.2 seconds left and the Charge up 11. It didn't seem to sit well with the Armor. Jensen quickly got Gutierrez out of the game during the next dead ball. Gibson scored 15 points, while Dominique Johnson scored 14 off the bench. Willie Reed (6'9''-F-90, college: St.Louis) led Springfield with 21 points and 10 rebounds, while James Mays totaled 18 points and 13 rebounds. Courtesy of: cantonrep.com

Los Angeles D. - Ft.Wayne MA 113-106
Three Mad Ants players recorded double-doubles, but it wasn't enough to take down the Los Angeles D-Fenders. Los Angeles beat the Ants 113-106 on Saturday in the Toyota Sports Center. The loss was the second straight for Fort Wayne and dropped the team's record to 11-12. Luke Harangody (6'7''-F-88, agency: Priority Sports, college: Notre Dame) led the Ants with 31 points and 12 rebounds. Indiana Pacers assignee Miles Plumlee (6'10''-PF-88, agency: Priority Sports, college: Duke) scored 15 points with 12 rebounds and point guard Anthony Harris scored 16 points with 12 assists. Anthony Richardson scored 19 points and Tony Mitchell added 17. Ron Howard (knee) and Milwaukee Bucks assignee Doron Lamb (ankle) did not play because of injuries. Los Angeles (7-12) was led by Elijah Millsap (6'6''-G-87, agency: Interperformances, college: UAB) with 32 points and Gary Flowers with 30. The Ants will resume play at Canton on Monday.

Maine RC - Iowa E. 110-106
Xavier Silas (6'5''-G-88, agency: Pro One Sports, college: N.Illinois) signed programs. He signed shirts, hats and basketballs. He posed for pictures as a small crowd gathered around him on the court. Fortunately for the Maine Red Claws, Silas shook off defenders much more easily. Silas came off the bench and scored 21 points to lead Maine to a 110-106 win over the Iowa Energy on Saturday night before 2,953 at the Portland Expo. "X has done a great job in that role of being that energizing sixth man that does so many things on the floor," Maine Coach Mike Taylor said. Silas came up big at the end. Maine trailed with 5:30 left, but Silas hit one of his three 3-pointers for a 95-93 lead. With the score tied 98-98, Silas drove in for a basket and a free throw. He then popped in a jumper with 2:57 left for a 103-98 lead. The Red Claws never trailed after. It was Maine's fifth straight win as the Red Claws improved to 15-8, sitting atop the NBA D-League's East Division. The Energy dropped their third consecutive game, falling to 6-15. This Iowa team, which has an impressive roster, is 1-7 in January. "Just trying to figure it out and put it together," said former Red Claws guard Morris Almond (6'6''-F/G-85, college: Rice), who scored 19 for the Energy. "We have a lot of individual talent. Young talent. We're in every game, but a lot of our games end like this." Iowa jumped out to a 16-6 lead. Maine crept back. The 6-foot-5 Silas entered in the first quarter. He made a steal and finished the fast break with a dunk. Then he drove through traffic for another dunk. "Came in and got some easy ones," Silas said. "Any time that happens, it's going to be a good night." A lot of Red Claws had a good night. Micah Downs recorded 19 points and eight rebounds, along with four assists and for steals. Rookie center Fab Melo had a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds. He also blocked four shots. "The big thing is we see the progress in Fab," Taylor said. "We're really excited about his consistency. That's the most difficult thing for a young player." Champ Oguchi (four 3-pointers) and Chris Wright both scored 16 points, while Omar Reed added 10. Point guard Andre Barrett (5'9''-PG-82, agency: Z.A.G. - Law Offices, college: Seton Hall) recorded eight of the team's 29 assist. "Twenty-nine assists is excellent," Taylor said. "These guys played a lot of great team basketball on both ends of the floor." Maine made 11 steals, including one by Reed with 14 seconds left and the Claws up 107-104. Reed, a 6-6 forward, then sank a free throw to put the game out of reach. Reed, who has struggled to get minutes, found himself in the game at crunch time. "It feels good to be one of the guys on the court at the end," Reed said. "It shows that Coach has trust in me. "I've been waiting for my opportunity to contribute and show how much I can play. We have a lot of great players on this team. Had to be patient as much as I can be." Courtesy of: pressherald.com

Tulsa 66ers - Austin T. 96-87
On a Tulsa 66ers roster dominated by youth, NBA veterans Chris Quinn (6'2''-PG-83, agency: Priority Sports, college: Notre Dame) and Rasual Butler (6'7''-F-79, college: La Salle) stand out. On Saturday night at the SpiritBank Event Center, the experienced duo made big plays late in the game that helped the 66ers snap a four-game losing streak. Quinn and Butler combined for 13 of Tulsa's 22 points in the fourth quarter as the 66ers downed the Austin Toros 96-87 in an NBA Development League matchup. The win was just the second in the last 10 outings for Tulsa (10-11) and allowed the 66ers to salvage a weekend split with their Central Division rival. "All of our players wanted this win tonight," said Tulsa head coach Darko Rajakovic. "This was a very important game for us. We were playing at home and we haven't defended our home court very well since early in the season. Our guys came together tonight and I am very proud of their hustle and effort." Quinn would finish with a season-high 21 points and add a game-high seven assists to pace Tulsa, while Butler came off the bench to score 20 points. "Our youth gives our team energy, and we are lucky to have them and for them to share their experience with the rest of the team," Rajakovic said. "They had great games tonight, but I think their best games are ahead of them." Tulsa never trailed in the second half, but Austin (12-10) would pull within 79-75 on a jumper by Jamarr Sanders with 7:53 to play. Butler would respond with a long jumper to grab back the momentum and force a Toro timeout with 6:39 left. Quinn would then take his turn in the scoring spotlight, hitting five of Tulsa's next six points to help the 66ers take an 87-79 lead and force another Austin timeout with 3:52 to play. Tulsa used some big plays at the end of the first and second quarters to build a 55-47 advantage at halftime. The 66ers used an 11-4 spurt to close the second half to grab momentum heading into the locker room, with Butler chipping in five of those points. Butler would also play a role in a flurry of 66er scoring to conclude the first quarter. The 11-year NBA veteran hit a 3-pointer with 1.8 seconds left in the period, then Dominique Sutton (6'5''-F-86, college: N.C.Central) stole the ensuing inbounds pass at midcourt and hit a desperation 3-pointer just before the buzzer, pushing the Tulsa lead to 29-24 heading into the second quarter.
