The Carolina Thunder didn't have to wait long to get into the win column. They travelled to High Point, NC on March 26 and picked up their first win of the season. With the majority of the teams in the league having played at least three games, the Thunder couldn't wait to get started. High Point Hawks came in the game as the heavy favorite, but this unknown team out of Dillon, SC came and shocked the ECBL.

The Thunder had their hands full from the start, getting down 17 points. They could have easily packed up and quit, but after trimming the 17 point lead to five points at the half, it was enough for the Thunder to stick around and try to win. Dashawn Bethea came off the bench to give the Thunder the spark they needed in the first half, scoring 9 points. It was Bethea who answered the call early with the Thunder leading scorer of the preseason Andrew Crawford (6'4''-G, college: Benedict) in a funk.

Deonte Johnson (6'4''-F-87, college: Benedict) filling in for Trey James was very special on this evening. The former Marion High/Benedict star led the way with 27 points, 17 rebounds. When the Thunder signed Radio late in the preseason, this was the bonus Coach Page knew he would have, adding a guy of that caliber. The point guard Jarvis Williams (5'11''-PG) was a huge part of the win with controlling the game and knowing when to score. The lefty closed the Hawks out with big buckets and free throws in the fourth.

With the Thunder being new to the ECBL, they needed someone who played in the league before. The basketball Gods blessed them with this young man in Anthony Keane (6'3''-G, college: Hartwick). Keane played the last few years with the two-time runner-up Crossover. With this team no longer in the league, Keane reached out to Thunder Nation. While in Conway, SC, it took Coach Page one play to see if Keane was a fit for the roster. The former Crossover guard came off the bench for his new team and put up a quiet double double with 13 points, 12 rebounds. Andrew Crawford did manage 24 points, but the shooting percentage from the 3-point land is a level of worry. On this day, it was enough to give the Thunder the 118-111 victory.

Winston-Salem Wolves Run Away From SC Upstate 120-80 - 8 days ago
The Winston-Salem Wolves remained unbeaten in ECBL play this season with a home win over the SC Upstate Redhawks on Saturday, March 16, with a final score of 120-80. The Redhawks scored first and held the first lead of the game, but a deep three pointer by starting guard Antonio Robinson (6'4''-G-93, college: E.Carolina) quickly put the Wolves out in front and the team never trailed again in the game. The Wolves came into the contest somewhat shorthanded, with shooting guard Lepreece Lync...   [read more]
