March 17, 2015 – National Basketball League of Canada (NBL Canada) Mississauga Power

(Mississauga, ON – ) The Mississauga Power left their heart on the court in a close 107-102 loss to the Windsor Express that ended the Power’s season. Guards Tut Ruach and Peak Performer of the Game Jordan Weidner scored nearly half of the Power’s points and combined for 43 points with eight assists apiece in the bittersweet loss.

The Express looked like they were a step ahead of the Power and took an early lead until centre Mike Allison notched Mississauga’s the first five points of the game. The Power turned up the heat with guard Tut Ruach drawing a foul on the perimeter and a corner three from guard Jabs Newby to shorten Windsor’s lead to one point. Windsor got Mississauga to simmer down with a seven point run that guard Omar Strong snapped with a three pointer on his first shot of the game. The Power came up with two stops on the defensive end with centre Paul Cooper drawing a Windsor turnover on the baseline. Forward Marcus Capers jumped in with a slam dunk, making that his fifth in two games. Mississauga took their first lead of the game thanks to a long three from guard Jordan Weidner for a 22-20 lead and he later tied the game at 27 apiece with a four point play with less than 10 seconds to go. The Power kept the intensity rolling and ended the quarter with a 30-27 lead.

Weidner hit the Express where it hurt and drew a foul under the basket for Windsor’s eighth of the game. The Power led for the next three minutes but the Express rallied back to a four point lead on 10-6 point run. Windsor guard Tony Bennett carried his team with 12 points by the quarter’s halfway mark and the defending champions continued their run to a 46-36 lead. Capers broke the Mississauga scoring drought with another monster dunk but couldn’t stop the Express from scoring a dozen more points. Malcolm Grant came to the rescue with a buzzer beating three pointer to send Mississauga to the locker room with a positive feel on a 58-45 deficit.

Mississauga tore Windsor up with a 16-2 run to take a 61-60 lead. Windsor answered back to retake the lead but the Power were still on their game. For the third time this game Capers threw down a dunk for the offensive put back. The pressure reached an all-time high with squads gridlocked at 66 points but the Power took advantage with three big stops under the basket but the Express rolled with it and turned the stops into an eight point lead. Windsor sealed the third quarter with a full court press that forced a Power turnover leading to an 81-71 lead.

Strong hastily put up a deep three pointer to commence Mississauga’s last push. The Power trailed 94-82 until Ruach made a clutch three to get the Power back on track. In the final three minutes the Power, led by Ruach, cut down Windsor’s lead to six points. Coming out of a timeout the Power went all out on the Express and shot back a wide open three pointer from Strong to come within one of Windsor’s 98 point lead. Strong did it again to tie the game at 100 points where the entire Hershey Centre stood still for the last 15 seconds. The relentless Power muscled their way to a 105-102 point deficit but Windsor punched their ticket to the second round with a 107-102 victory.

The loss ends the Power’s season. The Power organization would like to thank all the fans and supporters in the city of Mississauga for a wonderful season! The team will be around various community events in the summer and will be back to tip-off the 2015-16 season in the fall.
