Rainmen’s Dollard Named PBL Player of the Week
During last weekend’s road games against the Saint John Mill Rats and the Quebec Kebs, Dollard scored 69 points and had 23 rebounds, averaging 34 points per game.
“I’m very honoured to have received the award,” said Dollard. “I couldn’t have achieved it without the help of my teammates, Mr. Levingston and Coach Evans and his staff. I want to thank them all for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to become the best player I can be.”
Halifax Rainmen President & CEO shared in Dollard’s pride and believes the best may be yet to come for the 6’7″, 235 lbs power forward.
“I’m very happy for Josh,” said Andre Levingston. “He’s been working very hard and is extremely focused on becoming a better player. I believe he will one day have the opportunity to play in the NBA – he’s that good.”
Dollard and the rest of the Rainmen will look for revenge against the Quebec Kebs this Saturday in a overtime re-match that kicks-off at 1:00 pm followed by the regularly scheduled game at 1:30 pm. The overtime rematch is to makeup for an earlier ovetime victory by Halifax over the Kebs in which the result was deemed invalid due to an officating error.
The Rainmen will introduce a five-dollar ticket for children 12 and under for Saturday’s game, which can be purchased at any Ticket Atlantic Location or at the Metro Centre Box Office from March 1 to 5.
