(SAINT JOHN, NB: The Saint John Mill Rats have added two veteran small forwards to their lineup, Johnny Mayhane and Garrius Holloman. Both players are expected to be in uniform for the road game tomorrow against the Halifax Hurricanes.
Mayhane, a 6'5 wing, was part of the Mill Rats resurgence last season when they rattled off a 13-4 record during key stretch. Mayhane averaged 17.6 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game while shooting 47% from behind the arc.
Hollomon a sturdy 6'6 forward, played his college basketball at Bethune Cookman before embarking on a professional career that has included stops in New Zealand, Britain, Finland, and France.
"It's no secret we've had alot of scoring coming from 5 players, and we felt we needed to bring additional scoring punch from veteran players," said Head Coach Rob Spon.
In order to make room on the roster for the new additions, Marlin Mason and Robinson Odoch-Opong were released.
Saint John heads to Halifax for a road game on Wednesday January 14th to face the Halifax Hurricanes, before the two teams return back to Harbour Station on Thursday the 15th for a rematch at 7PM.
