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.

River Lions net first-ever 3-game win streak - 1 day ago
A funny thing has happened since the Niagara River Lions increased their Canadian content. The team hasn't lost. The River Lions now feature a league record eight Canadians, and on Wednesday night at Meridian Centre the team capped off their first ever three-game win streak with an impressive 121-98 victory over the first place Halifax Hurricanes. Two of those Canadians were key in the Lions latest win as Richard Amardi (6'9''-F-90, college: Oregon) (Scarborough) drained 23 points and pul...   [read more]

A's fall on the road to Niagara River Lions, 121-106 - 4 days ago
After losing a close one to the Kitchener-Waterloo Titans the night before, the Orangeville A's (15-22) headed to the Meridian Centre to take on the Niagara River Lions for a 2:00 PM Sunday afternoon game. Both teams started the game evenly matched offensively as an exchange of baskets ensued early. Anthony Harris continued his great play for the A's as he steadily hit shots and found his way to the basket for a 10-point opening quarter. Jameson Tipping (6'7''-G, college: W.Kentucky) was...   [read more]
