The Halifax Hurricanes saved their best for last and were rewarded with a 112-108 overtime victory over the Cape Breton Highlanders on Saturday night at Centre 200 in Sydney. The Hurricanes extended their perfect record to 9-0, but that achievement didn't come without a fight between the Nova Scotia rivals in the National Basketball League of Canada. In front of a supportive home crowd, the Highlanders didn't perform like a 2-8 team sitting last in the 10-team league. Cape Breton was in front for most of the second half, but allowed Halifax back in the game at the most critical time. The Hurricanes outscored the Highlanders 16-12 in the five-minute overtime period, during which Halifax's Mike Poole and Cape Breton's Chad Frazier exchanged three-point shots in the dying minutes. The guests gained a four-point advantage with a minute remaining and didn't look back. The 96-96 regulation finish was most dramatic, as the Hurricanes stormed their way back from a nine-point deficit - 90-81 - with five minutes left. They closed to within five points with two and a half minutes remaining, and made it a two-point ball game with a minute left. Halifax evened the score - and forced extra time - on Ta'Quan Zimmerman (6'2''-G-91, college: Monroe CC)''s layup with 24.4 seconds to go. Cape Breton ran down the clock for a long shot from six-foot-nine Chadrack Lufile, but he didn't score and Halifax managed a last-second attempt from Tyrone Watson, albeit also a failed opportunity. Zimmerman, a six-foot-two guard, paced the Hurricanes with 21 points. Watson collected 17 points and eight rebounds and provided a physical presence all night. Billy White (6'8''-F-89, college: San Diego St.) added 14 points and eight rebounds, while Anthony Cox (6'9''-C-83, college: Farmingdale St.) and Antoine Mason (6'3''-G-92, college: Auburn) each contributed 13 points. Including nine points from Poole, five other Hurricanes figured in the team's balanced scoring. Frazier meshed a game-high 35 points and gathered seven rebounds for the Highlanders, who led 50-46 at halftime, but ran into foul trouble down the stretch. Charles Mann Junior scored 19 points and Booker Woodfox (6'1''-G-86, college: Creighton, agency: Interperformances) added 18. Lufile filed a game-high 11 rebounds, while Austin Whitter posted eight points and nine boards. It was the second home game in as many nights for Cape Breton, which lost 105-87 to the second-place Saint John Riptide (8-3) on Friday. Deron Scott, with 21 points, was the Highlanders' top scorer in Friday's loss. The Hurricanes hadn't played since Thursday, when they scored a 113-108 victory over the host Moncton Miracles (3-7). This Thursday night, Halifax is at home to Saint John in a battle of the front-runners, while Cape Breton visits the Island Storm (4-5) in Charlottetown. Both games are 7 p.m. starts.
