Windjammers Return to Halifax
For those of you that may not recall, or are a little young to remember, the Windjammers called the Halifax Metro Centre Home for four seasons between 1991 and 1994 while part of both the World Basketball League (2 seasons) and the National Basketball League (2 seasons).
But this game is more than just a blast from the past.
With five games left in the regular season, the Rainmen currently sit in fourth place, the final PBL playoff spot. The visiting Millrats are only a half game back, and can leapfrog the Rainmen for that final playoff spot.
After tonight, the two Maritime squads will face one another two more times, one home game each. These will be the last games of the season and it we won’t likely know the playoff matchups until then.
Both teams are chasing the Rochester RazorSharks, who currently sit in third one game ahead of the Rainmen. Halifax and Saint John both have games at hand on the RazorSharks but only one can make the playoffs.
