BBALL | Holland Hurricanes and Island Storm announce Basketball Day on PEI

January 10, 2018

The Holland Hurricanes and the Island Storm have announced a joint-event featuring collegiate and professional basketball action, Saturday, February 3rd, at the Eastlink Centre in Charlottetown.

At 1:30 PM, the Hurricanes women will host the Mount Saint Vincent University Mystics, while the men’s basketball Hurricanes will host MSVU at 3:30 PM. Both Hurricanes teams have held national rankings in the CCAA (Canadian Collegiate Athletics Association) this season; the women have been ranked as high as sixth in the country while the men have been charted as high as third.

The Island Storm have staged an impressive start to their 2017-18 campaign, after an offseason that saw a high roster turnover including the addition of head coach Tim Kendrick. The team, now in its seventh season, leads the National Basketball League of Canada’s Atlantic Division. The Storm will host the Halifax Hurricanes at 7:00 PM on February 3rd to close out the Basketball Day on PEI event.
