CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

The Storm is back on the Island and looking to get back to its winning ways.

The Storm (5-6) dropped all four games of an Ontario road trip to fall to 5-6 in the National Basketball League of Canada. They host the Moncton Magic (6-2) tonight at 7 p.m. at the Eastlink Centre.

The teams have split two games this season with the Magic winning 120-112 on opening day and the Storm earning a 113-108 victory on Jan. 5. The teams complete the weekend Sunday at 2 p.m. with a contest in Moncton.

Alex Campbell leads the Storm in scoring at 22.1 points per game while Johnathan Loyd is second at 19.2 followed by Robbie Robinson at 17. Antwon Lillard leads the team in rebounding at 8.1 while Loyd leads the squad in assists at 6.2.

Billy White (18), Corey Allmond (16.1) and Jeremiah Mordi (16) are the Magic’s top scorers while Ronald Delph is the top rebounder at 9.5 and Mordi leads in assists at 4.4 per game.

Moncton traded White to Windsor for former Storm guard Kemy Osse but the league rescinded the deal and both players were returned to their original teams.

The Storm released guard Keith Shamburger on Jan. 17. The Storm traded future considerations to Sudbury for Jelani Pryce on Jan. 13. He’s averaged 3.7 points and 4.3 rebounds in three games with the Storm.

The Storm has regularly struggled in Ontario, only having a winning record there in 2017-18 when they went 3-1.
