Hamilton showed up ready to play in this one. With FMB showing up just before gametime and only with 5 players, Hamilton was well warmed up and ready to play right from the tip which helped them race out to 20-8 lead after 1. FMB battled back and evened things out in the 3rd but depth and cold shooting really hampered their chances of winning as Hamilton would regain control late and not let up to win 70-62.
Ricky Heath hit 6 threes for 19 points as he hit some clutch ones in the end to put the game away. Tyrell Edwards made his debut and scored 18.
For FMB, They shot a season-worst 22% from 3 going 9 for 40. They normally shoot the 3 ball pretty well but fatigue might have a lot to do with this one. Ostap Choliy led the way with 18 while Rohan Boney added 15
Player of the Game: Ricky Heath – 19 points 6 3PM
These two teams are coming off nice wins in Week 3. Both are currently at 2-1 on the season. FMB finally had its full roster present in the last game and on paper, may have the most talented team in the league. Hamilton has come out strong with 2 straight wins since their Week 1 loss. Michael Cassels-Hamilton has really emerged as the leader and a legitimate MVP candidate. With both teams filled with 3 point shooters, expect a high scoring matchup this Saturday
Key Matchup: Ricky Heath vs Ostaps Choliy – 2 of the top 5 in 3PM in the season. These two are knockdown shooters who can get hot from the outside.
