The Halifax Hurricanes clinched top spot in the NBL Canada's Atlantic Division in style Wednesday night. The Hurricanes improved to 26-10 on the season after crushing the Cape Breton Highlanders 121-66 at Scotiabank Centre. The 66 points represent the fewest the Hurricanes have given up all season while the 121 points for is the club's highest-scoring output of the season. That deadly combination resulted in a relatively easy 55-point win. 'This was a bounce-back game for us,' said Billy White (6'8''-F-89, college: San Diego St.), who scored a game-high 24 points. 'They beat us twice on our home court. We came out and wanted to make a statement.' With first place locked up, the Hurricanes will have little to play for in their remaining four regular-season games. 'I think we're all ready for the playoffs, but we can't look too far ahead,' said White. 'I think we've got four or five games left and we're trying to win all those games and get into playoff mode.' The Hurricanes jumped out to a nine-point lead after the first quarter and extended that lead to 18 points after two as they went to the break with a 53-35 lead. After scoring 10 points in the opening 12 minutes, White added another four in the second quarter to finish the half with a game-high 14. White added seven rebounds to lead his team in that category. Cj Washington (6'7''-F) scored 10 points and added six rebounds to help the Hurricanes. The Hurricanes scored 36 points in the third quarter to put the game out of reach as Halifax went to the fourth with an 89-55 lead. The Hurricanes added another 32 points in the fourth to complete the dominating 55-point win. 'We made a lot of shots,' said White. 'We just played great basketball tonight.' White (24), Anthony Cox (11), Aaron Bowen (6'6''-F-91, college: Georgetown) (11), Joey Haywood (6'1''-PG-84, college: St.Mary's) (11), Antoine Mason (6'3''-G-92, college: Auburn) (11), Cj Washington (10) and Ta'Quan Zimmerman (6'2''-G-91, college: Monroe CC) (10) all reached double-digit scoring on the night. Washington added 10 rebounds for the game's only double-double. Anthony Walker (12), Billy Rush (11) and Scott Deron (10) led the Highlanders in scoring. The Hurricanes will have a quick turnaround as they play the Island Storm on Thursday night in P.E.I. The Hurricanes return to the Scotiabank Centre on Sunday afternoon for their final regular-season home game.
