In this season of firsts, the expansion Kitchener-Waterloo Titans' next checklist item was to knock off the only remaining divisional rival they had not yet beaten. The Titans stroked that one off the list when they dumped the Orangeville A's 93-83 in Tuesday's only National Basketball League of Canada game. Tuesday's victory, before 1,157 fans at the Aud, also marked another first for the Titans' inaugural season - two wins in a row. The Titans are now 4-6 (won-lost) in league play. Orangeville drops to 4-5. K-W bolted to a 17-point lead early in the second quarter, solving one of their woes - sluggish starts. However, their mostly listless second and third quarters, when they were outscored 49-39 presented another problem. But a convincing fourth period, which featured guard Adam Wing's clutch three-point bombs, put the game out of reach. "There's no secret we've not been clicking on offence the last couple of games," Titans head coach Serge Langis said before Tuesday's contest. "We need to compete. We need to come out from the tip." "It's a 'compete' thing right now." Adam Blazek and A.J. Davis (6'6''-G-87, college: JMU) each scored 20 for the hosts Tuesday. Wing hit 15 and Jamell Harris (6'9''-F-91, college: E.Michigan) added eight points and 14 boards. "I think getting off to that good start and not getting behind by 20 (points) early made all the difference in the world," Blazek said after the game. Newest Titan power forward, Florida native Kevin Foster made his first appearance with the club. Signed last week, the six-foot-eight, 240-pounder and Fresno State grad hit five points and hauled down three boards through 13 solid minutes of action. " (Foster) is a tough one to handle," said Langis. "He's a body type we didn't have before." Heading into Tuesday's game, the A's featured three of league's top scorers, Justin Moss (6'7''-F-93, college: Buffalo) (22.50 points per game), Rahir Hollis-Jefferson (21.75) and Anthony Harris (15.22) listed third, fifth and ninth, respectively. Moss saw limited minutes Tuesday. He was held off the scoresheet until five minutes left in the game when he hit a pair of free throws, his only points before he fouled out. Moss, the league's leading rebounder, entered Tuesday's contest with 10.63 boards per game. He had zero rebounds on Tuesday. For the visitors, Hollis-Jefferson scored a team-high 20 points. Harris scored 13. The A's now lead the season series with K-W 2-1. Also Tuesday, former Western Mustang star Greg Morrow (6'3''-F, college: Western) continued to impress off the bench with six points, an assist and two steals. "I'm just trying to be the hardest working guy I can be," Morrow said this week. "There is a lot of talent in this league. I don't always have the advantages that I had back in university. I know I have to outwork guys if I want to stay competitive." Orangeville is coming off a disappointing home-court 127-107 loss to the PEI Island Storm on Sunday. Next action for the Titans is Thursday at 7 p.m. when they entertain the London Lightning at the Kitchener Aud. "We have to stay focused on what we do," Blazek said of Thursday's date with the Lightning. "Things like our screens, our discipline, our communication. "We will use (Wednesday) to get ready." The A's and Titans square off again Sunday afternoon in Orangeville.
