Braylon
Rayson
The Sudbury Five were surely aided by their supportive spectators and likely by their opponents' short bench and long bus ride from Prince Edward Island to the Nickel City. Ultimately, however, the locals had to rediscover the scoring touch that had eluded many of them during back-to-back road losses if they were to defeat the Island Storm at Sudbury Community Arena on Friday night. Braylon Rayson (5'9''-PG-94, college: Cent.Michigan)'s early three-pointer set the tone for what proved to be a return to form in no uncertain terms as the Five thumped the Storm 130-108 and improved to 8-5, good for first place in the National Basketball League of Canada's Central Division. 'There's a lot of trust in this team,' said big man Cory Dixon, who helped pace the Sudbury attack with 21 points and 11 rebounds. 'It's cliche to say, but everybody likes each other on this team, everybody trusts each other on this team and we got going early, we got the ball moving early, and when that happens, when the ball gets through hands, everybody feels good and we just kept it rolling.' Rayson finished with a game-high 29 points, as well as 10 rebounds and five assists, while Travis Releford (6'6''-SG-90, college: Kansas) scored 17, Adam Blazek and Grandy Glaze had 11 apiece and Devin Gilligan (6'5''-F-93, college: S.New Hampshire) and Jaylen Bland (6'3''-G-93, college: Cal-Riverside) had nine each for the Five. The contest was a nice bounce back for Dixon himself, who had 19 points in the first of back-to-back games in St. Johns, N.L. earlier in the week, but was limited to two the next night. 'The St. John's trip was tough for me,' he said. 'I was a little under the weather, no excuses, but I definitely needed this. I just kind of did what I did and I didn't think too much, and that was the result.' Such results have become commonplace since Five general manager and head coach Logan Stutz signed Dixon, a 6-foot-7 New Orleans University alumnus who played last season for Limburg United in Belgium. The 28-year-old from Sioux City, Iowa has averaged 11.4 points per game, reaching double digits in four of his last five contests, and 7.2 rebounds. 'We're 8-5, first in our division right now, and I think this is what Logan brought me in for,' Dixon said. 'I'm just doing what I do and it has been a good year, so I can't really complain about any of it.' The Five found their shooting groove early on Friday, taking a 41-25 lead after one quarter and 72-46 at the half. Three-pointers by Rayson and Blazek mixed nicely with the finesse of Releford and close-range work from the likes of Dixon, Glaze and Yohanny Dalembert (6'8''-F, college: JMU). 'It was a great response from the guys,' Stutz said. 'We had a tough time out there in Newfoundland, so it was good to come back on this note and we have to carry it on for one more game.' The Five visit the KW Titans on Sunday at 2 p.m. 'Everything on the board today was mental,' Stutz said. 'We had to have mind over matter and when your body gets fatigued, sometimes you have to look other ways, sometimes you have to be mentally strong or find a guy on the team who's mentally strong and let him carry it for a while. He carries somebody else, then somebody else carries somebody else and at the end of the day, that's what we did, we just piggybacked off each other's performances and it showed.' The hosts added several baskets in transition as the first half went on and the Storm's defensive frustrations started to carry over to the offensive end of the court by halftime. To the visitors' credit, however, they emerged for the second half with good energy and even strung a few runs together late in the game. Sampson Carter led the Island squad with 28 points, while Russell Byrd had 23 and Alex Campbell (6'2''-G-93, college: Windsor) and Kareem Canty (6'1''-G-93, college: Auburn, agency: Promotex) poured in 18 each. 'They had two really good post players that we knew were going to be tough to guard in Carter and Byrd,' Dixon explained. 'They came out and they played their role and where we needed to win the game was taking out the rest of their team. We did a really good job of keeping the rest of their team quiet and I think that's really why we came out with the win.' Antoine Chandler (5'10''-PG-92, college: E.Michigan), who played well in the later parts of the St. John's games, was rewarded with additional minutes and put up seven points. Dalembert finished with eight. 'It's awesome,' Dixon said. 'I see those guys every day and I know what they can do. I'm happy to see they were able to do it today.' Following their visit to Kitchener, the Five will wrap up the 2018 side of their schedule with home games against the Titans, next Saturday at 7:05 p.m., and the London Lightning, Sunday at 2:05 p.m. 'We have a great opportunity to end this month strong and that's our goal,' Stutz said. 'The next one is right before Christmas and then we have back to back at home, so we have a good chance to end this month very strong.'

Magic Comes out on Top in OT Thriller - 1 day ago
Finishing on a high note. The Moncton Magic finish the regular season with a historic 27-13 record. There are many ups and downs experienced through a 40-game season, including player turnover, injuries, a lack of team chemistry, etc. In spite of that, the Magic have remained a motivated tightknit group that has been professional, resilient, and successful. After running through the KW Titans on March 23rd, the Moncton Magic follow it up by coming back and beating the Windsor Express in O...   [read more]
