December 20, 2013 – National Basketball League of Canada (NBL Canada) Brampton A’s

Mississauga, ON. – The Brampton A’s defeat the Mississauga Power 97-91, giving them a league best
13-5 record, the Power fall to 7-10.

The Brampton A’s brought the electricity to the Hershey Centre last night. The A’s wasted no time getting
on the board as Kevin Francis hit a corner three to start the game. It was a hotly contested game as
Brampton and Mississauga went back and forth, led by the inspired play of Francis. Francis; who has been
on a tear lately ended the first quarter the way he started it, with another corner three to put the A’s at
24-22.

Francis wasn’t finished his onslaught as he threw down an alley-oop dunk from A’s guard Cedric Moodie in
the beginning of the second quarter. Francis was all over the court, taking charges and scoring another
dunk off an A’s miss. The Power made a run with a three point shot by Thijin Moses, cutting the A’s lead
to 35-31. But it would be Moodie who ended the run, drawing a foul on a three point attempt by faking
out Power guard Nick Okarie. Moodie made all three free throws, giving the A’s the 44-41 halftime lead.

In the third quarter, the A’s point guards took control of the game with shooting from guards Melvin
Council and Evaldas Zabas. Council also gave the A’s plenty of second chance opportunities with his five
offensive rebounds. The A’s characteristically continued their league dominance in rebounding by out
rebounding the Power 56-42. The quarter ended with another dunk by Francis, giving them a 69-62 lead.

Both teams saved their best efforts for last as the final quarter was a high scoring affair. Brampton three
point marksman Scottie Haralson started it off with a 25ft three from outside. Haralson ended the game
with 14 points, including three 3’s. NBL shot block leader Cavell Johnson slowed the Powers momentum
when he blocked Okarie’s dunk attempt with three minutes left in the game. Okarie lead the Power with
25 points. In the last minute of the game Mississauga forward Kirk Williams Jr. made a costly mental
error as he fouled Evaldas Zabas, who is shooting 92 percent from the free throw line. Zabas hit the two
clutch free throws and gave the A’s the lead for good, as they won the game 97-91. Zabas ended the
game with 18 points.

Brampton plays a three game home stand at the Powerade Centre starting Friday, December 20th in a
rematch against the Power at 7:00pm, Saturday, December 21st against the Halifax Rainmen and Monday,
December 23rd against the London Lightning.
