RECAP: Hurricanes can’t keep up to Niagara River Lions in road loss

The road caught up to the Halifax Hurricanes on Tuesday night in St. Catherine's Ontario as they lost to the Niagara River Lions 111-91 at the Meridian Centre. 

After a strong opening quarter, the Hurricanes were not able to keep up the momentum and the hot-shooting River Lions took advantage, out-scoring the Halifax 30-14 in the second quarter. 

Hurricanes guard Antoine Mason lead the effort for the Hurricanes. He has 21 points on the night to go with four rebounds and three steals. 

Rhamel Brown played big down in the paint, racking up a double-double with 10 points, 10 boards and two blocked shots. 

Mike Poole contributed as well. He had 14 points and six rebounds, while Ta'Quann Zimmerman put up 12 points off four made three-pointers. 

It wasn't enough to overcome the hot three-point shooting from the River Lions though, who as a team shot 53% from the arc and assisted on 76% of their made field goals. 

They were led by starting forward Marvell Waithe who had a game-high 27 points. 

The Hurricanes will look to put this 1-3 road trip behind them as they head home for a week of rest and preparation. 

Come see them live at home on Dec. 7 at the Scotiabank Centre at 7 p.m. in Halifax where they will host the Windsor Express. Get your tickets at the Ticket Atlantic Box Office or online.
