Halifax-Island Sydney Tilt Marks Busy NBLC Preseason Weekend

Friday will mark the first all-NBLC exhibition game of the 2015-16 preseason when the Island Storm takes on the Halifax Hurricanes in Sydney, Nova Scotia.

The preseason match-up at Centre 200 (7 p.m. AST) was announced last month as part of the Cape Breton franchise announcement.

The game will be Halifax’s first as the Hurricanes, after the franchise was reborn in the off-season.


Meanwhile, there are two exhibition games featuring NBLC sides slated for Saturday, a week before the regular season begins.

The London Lightning will host Windsor (7 p.m. EST) at Budweiser Gardens. The Express are hot off of a 108-92 win over the Premier Basketball League's Lima Express on Sunday.

The Hurricanes will host Moncton at Scotiabank Centre (7 p.m. AST) in their final preseason tilt. Moncton, however, is set to host the Storm on Monday and head to Saint John on Wednesday to wrap up their preseason.
