Three games in three days

SUMMERSIDE – The Summerside Storm is Ontario-bound.

The Summerside Storm’s Ayodokun Akingbade looks to make a move while being closely defended by a member of the Saint John Mill Rats during recent National Basketball League of Canada action at Eastlink Arena.

The Storm will begin a stretch of three road games in less than 72 hours against the expansion Windsor Express on Friday night. Saturday, it’s on to Oshawa to face the Power in an evening match, and then it’s back to Windsor for a Sunday afternoon matinee.

 “It will be a real test on the road to see how we do,” said Storm small forward Chris Cayole. “I’m real confident in our team.”

The Storm, coming off a 103-94 road win against the Moncton Miracles on Saturday night, will complete a stretch of five straight games away from home on Thursday night back in Moncton.

“We are 3-0 (won-lost) and we are happy about that, but we can’t be satisfied. We want to continue to push, win more games and make the playoffs." Storm centre Ayodokun Akingbade

The Storm will return to Eastlink Arena to host the Miracles in the back end of a home-and-home series on Friday, Nov. 23, at 7 p.m.

“We are 3-0 (won-lost) and we are happy about that, but we can’t be satisfied,” said Storm centre Ayodokun Akingbade. “We want to continue to push, win more games and make the playoffs.”

The Express takes a 1-2 record into Friday’s game while Oshawa was 2-1 going into Thursday night’s contest against the London Lightning.
