This game was not nearly as close as the score suggests.
At the game against Manchester I remarked to my dad that the Rainmen should organize an AND1 style streetball style exhibition game… that’s basically what this game became… lots of long alley-oops, Stick being Strick, guys jacking up threes to try to get the fans a big mac (they ended up hitting nine – not processed sandwhich for us), etc..
The Sasquatch basically did nothing but jack up shots from the outside due to being undersized and exhausted. Halifax ended up finishing with a remarkable 75 rebounds. The teams combined for a an amazing 222 shot attempts.
On the plus side, Halifax got to play Tyronne McNeal. He even started! And he almost got a double-double, finishing with ten rebounds and eight points.
It was pretty crazy. Tomorrow will likely be just as messy.
