Rainmen whip Express by 18 - Nov 25, 2012

The Windsor Express picked the wrong time to come to town. The Halifax Rainmen, still smarting from an embarrassing loss at home a week ago, thrashed the expansion Express 103-85 at the Metro Centre on Saturday night to make new coach Rob Spons debut a successful one. In front of 2,460 fans, Brandon Robinson (6'6''-F-89, college: Clayton St.) and Darren Duncan (5'11''-PG-88, college: Merrimack) netted 15 points each to pace the Rainmen. They halted a two-game slide at home and hiked their record to 3-4, tying them with the Saint John Mill Rats for third spot in the NBLs Atlantic Division. Weve been beating up on each other all week so its good to get out on the court and get on some other guys, Duncan said after the game, glancing down at the empty Windsor bench. They were just in a bad place at a bad time. Everyones been on edge, everyones pissed about our losing streak, but we just wanted to change it today. Spon took over the team Wednesday, eight days after Cliff Levingston was handed his walking papers and four days after the Moncton Miracles blasted the Rainmen 109-87, exposing many of the shortcomings that have plagued the team. The Rainmen had struggled with their consistency on both ends of the court and led the NBL in turnover margin going into Saturdays contest. But they shot a respectable 43 per cent from the field, had 18 steals, made 12 fewer turnovers than the Express and scored 36 points off Windsor giveaways. Coach is a defensive coach, said centre Antoine Tisby (6'8''-F/C-83, college: S.Carolina), one of the beneficiaries of Spons arrival. His first thing is defence. We came out and practised hard on it. We did a lot of work in practice and it showed tonight. The Rainmen sported a new look, with Spon inserting Tisby, guard Josiah Turner and forward Quinnel Brown (6'6''-F-83, college: Auburn) into the starting lineup along with Robinson and Joey Haywood. The new coach also proved a man of his word, having the team get the ball in to Tisby on the low post on three of the teams first four possessions. After his first practice, Spon vowed to go inside early to the six-foot-eight, 240-pound centre, sticking to a formula hes worn out over his 29 years of coaching. I dont mind that at all, Tisby quipped with a wry grin, referring to the strategy. It gives me a couple of touches and lets me know where the defence is at and what I need to do better offensively in order to help my team out. Tisby scored the first two hoops of the game and drew an assist on the third, feeding a pass out of the post to a streaking Brown, who converted the layup for a quick 6-0 lead. Turner added 14 points for Halifax, Tisby finished with 13 and Brown had 12. Mike Helms (6'1''-PG-82, college: Oakland) topped Windsor with 17 before he drew a pair of technical fouls and was ejected in the third quarter. Brown beat the buzzer with a trey to put Halifax up 26-19 after one quarter. The new forward, who spent parts of the past two seasons with Spon in Quebec, topped Halifax with nine points in the period while Tisby had eight. Halifax extended its lead in the second, with Robinson and Turner scoring eight each as the Rainmen went up 55-41. In the third quarter, the Rainmen used a 16-2 run to open up an 82-52 cushion and the rout was on. Halifax scored nine straight points on free throws, five of them after Helms was whistled for a foul and then got tossed. The Rainmen will look to get back to .500 today when they host the Summerside Storm at 2 p.m. to wrap up a five-game homestand. The Storm lead the Atlantic Division with a 5-3 record, but have lost three of their last four. We just have to play our game, come play tough and aggressive defence and let our offence fuel off our defence, Duncan said. Our defence is gonna be key; our identity has to be defence first.

NBL Canada season to tip off sooner to boost attendance - 9 days ago
The National Basketball League of Canada is moving up its schedule for next season by six weeks because fans want to spend more time outside in the spring.
