The Summerside Storm are back in action as they face off against the Saint John Mill Rats tonight at 7pm in the Harbour Station. Summerside has already played Saint John twice this year. The first was a pre-season affair at the Credit Union Place on October 27 in front of a sell out crowd, Saint John won the game 90-82. The second match-up was a regular season game and also in Summerside, the Storm won the game 112-98 in front of 2100+ fans.

Summerside will also have two new faces in the line-up tonight. Jared Carter a 7’2″ center out of Kentucky University will be eligible to go tonight after being signed by The Storm Monday. There’s also Rasheem Barrett; a 6’5″ guard out of Auburn University. Barrett arrived in Summerside last night after he was singed by the Storm due to an injury of Dwight Brewington, the starting shooting guard.
Tonight’s game is truly unpredictable. The Mill Rats are 0-2 and the Storm are 2-0 but that doesn’t necessarily give the Storm much of an edge tonight. Playing on their home court could really help Saint John, they will also have their fans supporting them tonight. Both of these teams are very closely matched, it could come down to what team makes better decisions with the ball.
