After falling to the Island Storm in their barn three days earlier, the Hurricanes returned the favour Wednesday night. Halifax pulled off a 105-100 win over the Storm at the Scotiabank Centre to improve its Atlantic Division-leading record to 23-7. The Storm (10-15) won the Sunday matchup between the two clubs 112-103. 'We were much better today, overall,' said head coach Mike Leslie. 'We made a few corrections and adjustments and gave ourselves a chance at the end.' With just 11.9 seconds remaining, Anthony Cox (6'9''-C-83, college: Farmingdale St.) grabbed the offensive rebound with a 102-100 lead and landed one of the foul shots to lock down the win. Jahii Carson (5'10''-PG-92, college: Arizona St.) could not land a three-point jump shot with less than a second remaining to give the Hurricanes the eventual 105-100 win. After a slow start from both teams, the Hurricanes finished up the first half with a 43-40 lead. The big men came to play in the opening half for the Hurricanes. Billy White (6'8''-F-89, college: San Diego St.), Renaldo Dixon (6'9''-C-90, college: N.Mexico St.) and Cox - all of whom stand at least six-feet-eight inches tall - led the Hurricanes with eight points apiece in the opening 24 minutes. The trio combined for 52 points in the game, led by White's 24. 'We felt that we could score inside,' said Leslie. While play from the paint proved successful, the Hurricanes went cold from three-point range in the half, going 0 for 7. For the Storm, Carson led with a game-high 19 points in the half while Terry Thomas (6'4''-G/F-91) added 11. Both teams picked up the scoring in the third quarter as the Hurricanes went to the fourth carrying a 78-72 lead. After just 18 combined fouls in the first half, the teams combined for 22 fouls in third quarter. The Storm quickly erased the Hurricanes' six-point lead in the fourth as the teams traded leads for most of the that frame. The Hurricanes gained a two-point lead with less than 15 seconds and were able to hold on for the win. White (24), Cox (15) and Ta'Quan Zimmerman (15) led the Hurricanes in scoring. Clifford Clinkscales (6'1''-PG-84, college: De Paul) added 10 assists. For the Storm, Carson (33) and Alex Richter (6'5''-G/F-92, college: Augustana, SD) (22) carried the load. In his second game with the team, newly-acquired Aaron Bowen (6'6''-F-91, college: Georgetown) scored 13 points in 23 minutes of play. 'He's very athletic,' said Leslie. 'He's also an intelligent player. He doesn't have to take a lot of shots.' The Hurricanes were once again without top scorers Tyrone Watson and CJ Washington who are both nursing foot injuries. Leslie said the pair are in 'wait-and-see' mode as the team has a two-week break after Sunday. The Hurricanes will have a quick turnaround as they square off with the Moncton Miracles Thursday night on the road.
