Gameday -- November 15th, 2014

Four teams meet on the court tonight in NBL Canada action, as the undefeated Mississauga Power travel to the WFCU Centre to take on last year's defending champs, the Windsor Express. The Island Storm who are 0-3 on the road travel to London to take on the Lightning in a much-anticipated game, ever since the announcement yesterday of Adrian Moss's (pictured) return to London.

Mississauga Power vs. Windsor Express 


The Power are looking to keep their winning streak alive as they take on the Express, the Express ( 2-1) are the only Ontario team this season the Mississauga Power (3-0) have not played against. Omar Strong will be looking to continue his three-pointer streak roll, he has made 21 three-pointers in all three of the Power games. Travis Releford stepped up last game and led the Power with 24 points, will he be the leading scorer tonight? Windsor native Gary Gibson is having a very successful start this season, this past week's player of the game, scored 22 points, 5 rebounds, and 7 assists. Tip-off time for tonight's game is 7:30 p.m.

London Lightning vs. Island Storm 


The Island Storm continue their road trip, and are still looking for their first win on the road. The Storm (1-3) will play against two former players tonight in NBL Canada action, Al Stewart and Adrian Moss. Yesterday the London Free Press announced that Moss is returning to the Lightning (3-1) after the they failed to sign guard Stephen Bonneau. Moss first played for the Lightning in the 2012-2013, averaged more than 10 points per game, and was integral in the Lightning's win over the Island Storm in the 2013 NBL Canada finals. Moss came over to the Island Storm, after parting ways with the London Lightning during the 2013-2014 training camp. Moss was a fan favorite, averaged more than 11 points per game, and was hot on the three-point line. Tonight's match-up will be one to watch. Will the Lightning zap the Storm and push their road game losing streak to 0-4? Or, will the Storm tame the Lightning, and get their first win on the road.Tip-off time is 7:00 p.m. at the Budweiser Gardens in London.
