Brandon Robinson had a double-double to lead the Summerside Storm to a 118-109 victory over the host Oshawa Power Thursday in National Basketball League of Canada action.
Robinson had 24 points and 10 rebounds while Omari Johnson added 24 points as the Storm improved to 20-14. Oshawa, which had won the previous two meetings with the Storm, fell to 18-15.
Bo Harris led the Power with 23 points.
The Power led 37-29 after the first quarter, but the Storm responded by outscoring Oshawa 33-15 in the second to take a 10-point lead into halftime.
Antoine Tisby scored 17 in his debut with the Storm after being released by the Halifax Rainmen earlier this week.
A six-foot-nine, 240-pound centre from Kansas City, Tisby played college basketball at South Carolina and last year with the Saint John Mill Rats.
He was averaging 11.6 points per game and more than seven rebounds per game with the Rainmen.
“Antoine brings added depth to our front court and a legitimate scoring threat from the centre position, which I feel we have lacked this season,” said coach Joe Salerno.
“He is a veteran who understands how to win and will be a great addition to our team.”
The Storm visits the London Lightning Saturday. The two teams have split two games this season.
The Storm returns home for five straight games to end the regular season starting Tuesday when it hosts the Saint John Mill Rats in a game rescheduled from Islander Day.
