The Halifax Hurricanes used Antoine Mason's double-double effort of 21 points and 10 rebounds to widen the gap in the Atlantic division with a 101-96 win against the Saint John Riptide Thursday Night in a National Basketball League of Canada regular season game at Harbour Station in Saint John, N.B. The Riptide (12-10) - who were playing the second game of a home-and-home series with the Hurricanes, having won the first affair 113-102 on Feb. 26 - were paced by Haakim Johnson (6'7''-G/F-87, college: Pikeville)'s statline of 26 points, 12 rebounds and three assists. Saint John's lineup was decimated by a wave of suspensions - including the team's second-leading scorer in Gabe Freeman (6'6''-F-85, agency: Haylett Sports) (22.4 points per game) - resulting from a Feb. 23 brawl against the K-W Titans. The Hurricanes' fast-paced tempo, depth and dribble penetration had the home team shell-shocked in the first half. Playing without their leading scorer Billy White (6'8''-F-89, college: San Diego St.), the Hurricanes (19-5) punished the short-handed Riptide early on with 42 first-half points in the paint and a blistering 57 per cent from the field to Saint John's 35 per cent. The Hurricanes raced out to a 57-38 half-time lead, which ballooned to as many as 25 points in the third frame. That lead ultimately proved too much for Saint John to overcome but not without putting a scare into the Hurricanes in the game's final minutes. Led by Johnson and Anderson (27 points), the Riptide went on a torrid second-half run, outscoring the visitors 58-44 in the last two frames. Saint John had the game within two possessions with under a minute to play before the Hurricanes answered with a series of clutch free throws. The contest was the first of a four-game Atlantic road trip for the Hurricanes. Earlier in the day, the Hurricanes announced they had signed former NBA Development League player Coreontae DeBerry (6'10''-F-94, college: Cincinnati, agency: Two Points) and released Kareem Canty (6'1''-G-93, college: Auburn). In 15 games, Canty averaged five points and 1.93 assists while shooting 32.4 per cent from the floor and 39 per cent from three-point land, respectively. Next up for Halifax is the Island Storm on Friday night at the EastLink Arena.
