Oshawa Power ready to go as NBL Canada season set to tip off - Nov 2, 2012

OSHAWA -- The Oshawa Power is set to tip off its second season in the National Basketball League of Canada.

And the hope is things will go much smoother, both on and off the floor for the local franchise.

On the floor, the Power gets going on Saturday with a visit to play the league's newest entry, the Windsor Express, in their first ever game at the WFCU Centre.

After a long off-season that saw a mass exodus of star players from last season, a restocked roster is set to take the helm.

Two familiar names to Power fans, though, appear in the form of guard Larry Diamond and forward Jushay Rockett. Both spent time with the club last season.

Diamond is expected to see considerable minutes at point guard for the Power as those involved with the club believe he has the tools necessary to succeed at the position as the season progresses. Rockett, meanwhile, returns to provide his usual scrappy play and energy, playing undersized at the power forward position.

The rest of the roster is chock full of fresh faces.

Nick Okorie, a former Texas Tech guard, joins the backcourt along with Mike Culpo of LIU. Down the middle Toronto native Shamus Ferguson is a legit 6-foot-10, 255-pound big body that will provide a presence at the centre position.

Two of the club's draft picks from this past summer have made the grade with Amani Daanish (6'8''-F-83, agency: Elite Talent Exchange, college: Indiana St.) and Chad Gillaspy (6'7''-F, college: Evangel) suiting up at forward. Gillaspy's road to making the final roster was an interesting one as he was initially traded by the Power following the draft, but after being released during training camp by the Summerside Storm, he found his way back.

A pair of newcomers expected to play big roles with the offence are shooting guard Joe Posey and small forward William 'Bo' Harris, who should develop into a fan favourite in a hurry.

Perhaps of most interest to fans locally, alongside Ferguson, the club's Canadian talent will have a distinctive Durham Region flavour to it as Papa Oppong of Pickering returns alongside Oshawa native and former Durham College star Courtney Small, who played overseas last season.

Former national team member Jesse Young was expected to be part of that group, but his status is up in the air, though the club hopes to see Young on the floor at some point.

Meanwhile, on the sidelines, the Power has a new voice with Larry Blunt taking over the coaching duties, though perhaps only temporarily. Incumbent head coach Robert Brickey has stepped back for the time being to care for his ill mother, creating the need for another coach.

Brickey, who will continue his role as general manager, could be back on the sidelines soon, though a team source could not provide a definitive answer as to if or when that might be.

After Saturday's opener in Windsor, Oshawa will play another road game next Thursday against the defending champion London Lightning before returning home to host Windsor in their home opener Nov. 10.

Neither Brickey or Blunt were available prior to print deadline for comment.

Maurice Jones (5'7''-PG-91, college: Northwood) scored 26 points, but the Windsor Express lost to the Hurricanes 120-102 in Halifax Thursday night. The Express fall to 2-3 on the season with the loss, their second in a row after dropping a squeaker Wednesday at Cape Breton.

St. John's Edge win home opener in thrilling fashion - 11 days ago
In the first home game in franchise history, the St. John's Edge came out on top against the Niagara River Lions in front of a sellout crowd of 4,800 fans Friday night. The 105-103 win marked the homecoming for Carl English (6'5''-G-81, college: Hawaii), one of the best basketball players this province has ever produced. When his name was called as part of the starting line-up the crowd erupted. The 15-year professional player didn't disappoint the fans at Mile One Centre on Friday night,...   [read more]
