Great start of season for Xavier Moon in the Canadian CEBL. He was key player in the Edmonton S.'s victory against Niagara RL 118-105. Edmonton S. dominated down low during the game scoring 64 of its points in the paint compared to Niagara RL's 34 and made 30-of-38 free shots (78.9 percent) during the game. They outrebounded Niagara RL 45-25 including a 16-5 advantage in offensive rebounds. Niagara RL was plagued by 24 personal fouls down the stretch.
Xavier Moon stepped up and scored 36 points (!!!) and 6 rebounds (on 13-of-16 shooting from the field) for the winners. He is now the second best scorer of the league.
Four Edmonton S. and five Niagara RL players scored in double figures. Edmonton S. will have a break next round. Niagara RL will play again on the road against Edmonton S. and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
