Express sweeps away River Lions - May 7, 2016

Bill Jones
The Niagara River Lions inaugural season in the National Basketball League of Canada ended Friday night with a 95-83 loss to the visiting Windsor Express. With the victory, the two-time defending champion Express swept the Central Division semifinal series 3-0 and advance to the league semifinals against the London Lightning. 'We got beat by a team with a lot of experience,' said River Lions point guard Sammy Zeglinski (6'0''-PG-88, college: Virginia, agency: Stealth Sport), who had 14 points, six assists and five rebounds in the loss. 'There were a number of things we needed to be better at.' The 27-year-old Philadelphia native was subdued after the loss as the goodbyes have already started with some of his teammates. 'I am going to go home to Philadelphia, rest up, talk to my agent and then see what's next,' he said. The former University of Virginia scholarship player loved his time in Niagara, but didn't want to speculate on whether he would be back next season. The NBL of Canada has no guaranteed or multiyear contracts, so in theory the entire roster could change over for next season. Grace Lokole , who took over as head coach of the River Lions halfway through the season, described the season-ending loss as a difficult one. 'It's all about adversity and how you overcome it,' he said. 'In the bigger picture, we are going to have to learn from this as a organization, as a team, as players, for all the mistakes we made and all the what ifs. 'But in the short term, it is tough and a lot of things play back in your head.' Despite the loss, Lokole is excited about the path ahead. 'We are going to be one of the best organizations in the league,' he said. 'Look at where we play. Our owners are great and now we've seen a basketball product that capitalizes on all these other things. Once we figure it all out, it's going to be a helluva show we put on.' Lokole felt Windsor's experience was too much for Niagara. 'We played very, very polished team with a lot of basketball pedigree,' he said. 'If you go up and down their roster, there are a lot of smart basketball players who have played a lot of tough games.' It was that toughness that gave Niagara fits. 'We never won a rebounding battle once in this series and we turned the ball over more times than them,' Lokole said. Coming into Friday's game, Niagara had taken 45 less shots in the series than Windsor. 'That 45 field goal difference is huge in a situation where a few buckets win you the game,' he said. 'We played a well-coached team with a lot of veterans guys and we needed more from the coaching staff and the players.' As a rookie head coach, Lokole learned a lot about his craft in his first playoff series. 'Sometimes you have to simplify things,' he said. 'Clarity is an issue I need to address. I need to make sure all 12 guys understand what I am saying. Sometimes I assume too much that because these guys are playing at such a high level you only need to go over things once.' Windsor had coach Bill Jones thought Niagara gave his squad a tough series. 'They are well coached and I like his style and philosophy, but we just came out and played well,' he said. 'Knowing this team (Niagara) is a new team, they had a heck of a year and they don't have anything to hang their heads down about.' He agreed Windsor's experience was the deciding factor. 'You have a coaching staff that has won two championships and you have three players that have won championships,' Jones said. 'That pedigree is tough and they know they have the heart of a champion.' In a league of one-year contracts, preparation is the key to success. 'You have to get your guys to buy into your game plan and your offensive and defensive philosophy,' Jones said. 'Once they buy in, they go out and play for a mission and they play together. 'That's what it is all about.' On Friday, the River Lions were done in by a poor first half that saw them fall behind 51-32. They got to within eight in the third quarter and seven early in the fourth quarter, but couldn't climb all the way back.
