The Guelph Nighthawks have returned to the win column.
Guelph (2-3) started out the 2022 CEBL season with a win over the Scarborough Shooting Stars but lost three straight until Thursday night when they beat the Ottawa BlackJacks 86-79 at home.
The Nighthawks were led by Cat Barber, who had 26 points including the Elam Ending game-winner, while Ahmed Hill had 16 and AJ Lawson chipped in with 15. No other player on Guelph recorded double-digit points.
Ottawa (1-4), meanwhile, was led by its usual suspects of Walt Lemon Jr., and Bernard Thompson who had 19 and 14 points, respectively. Off the bench, the BlackJacks — who were coming off a win over the Newfoundland Growlers — saw Shamiel Stevenson and Cody John chip in with 11 and 10 points of their own, while starter Jackson Rowe added 10 points.
