November 5, 2013 – National Basketball League of Canada (NBL Canada) Mississauga Power

(Mississauga, ON – ) The Mississauga Power held a historic home opener on Tuesday night, playing the first ever professional basketball game in Mississauga at the Hershey Centre. Mayor Hazel McCallion was in attendance to support and endorse the team, “This is a basketball city. When you walk around outside, you see basketball nets on all the driveways and there is no better place for a professional basketball team.”

Proceeds from the game were donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation to make this special night the Power’s annual “Cure on the Court” event. The Mississauga Power wore pink in support of breast cancer awareness. A silent auction was also held to further help fundraise for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. “We are so pleased to be having this event tonight,” stated team President Henry Chow. Chow continues, “For everyone who donates to tonight’s game, I will match their donation!”

Brampton started off hot from the field as the team already had a 24-16 lead after the first quarter. The Power mounted a comeback to get within 2 points in the fourth quarter but ultimately, it was not enough as the team lost 107-95. Cedric Moodie had a big game for the A’s, tallying 21 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists. The Power were led by Nick Okorie and Dwight McCombs, who scored 23 and 21 points respectively. “Brampton came out and executed their game plan, we will definitely be ready for next game” stated Head Coach Fred Grannum, “We’ll focus on the positives of tonight, I think we held a great event for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. I would also like to thank Mayor McCallion and the city for the tremendous support we received tonight.”

The Power return to the Hershey Centre on Thursday night to take on the Halifax Rainmen. Visit www.powerbasketball.ca for details or click here for tickets.
