The Fraser Valley Bandits made quick work of the Guelph Nighthawks with a 92-71 victory, and in the process maintained their perfect home record on Wednesday night in Abbotsford, B.C.
Malcolm Duvivier of Toronto led the Bandits (5-2) with a team-high 20 points, in addition to Kenny Manigault chipping in 14 points and six assists of his own.
After trailing at the end of the first quarter, Fraser Valley controlled the pace and scoreboard right to the Elam Ending. The Bandits shot 47 per cent from the field and made 13 of 14 shots from the free throw line.
Guelph’s Chad Brown led his side with 16 points and seven rebounds, but to no avail, as the Nighthawks (1-5) came up short to the Bandits in rebounds, assists and steals.
