London Knights Press Releases

  • London Moves On To 2nd Round +

    London is through the first round of the playoffs after defeating Quebec 4-0. The Knights swept their division rival behind a stifling defense that was able to contain Charles Ottinger and Gary Williams, the Coyotes two All Stars big men. Ottinger was held to 15.5 points and 6.8 rebounds on 37.5% shooting while Williams was limited to 11.8 points and 6.8 rebounds on 35.6% shooting. "Coming into the series it was a priority to stop those two. Both are obviously great players and once they get going they can't be stopped. And that just opens things up for their terrific wings (Joe Spurlock and Frank McGehee). And frankly we didn't want any part of that. Quebec's a good team and Read More
  • London Signs Dolinish +

    London announced the surprise signing of Everett Dolinish. Dolinish was released by the Los Angeles Chaos earlier in the week and cleared waiver before agreeing with the Knights. The Knights are quite familiar with the legendary big man from his days with the Boston Buzzards, when he dominated the National East. Even at a ripe age of 38 years, he was putting up numbers that most bigs can only dream of. In 40 games he averaged 15.5 points, 7 rebounds, 1 blocks and 0.5 steal, shooting 46% from the floor and 39% on 3 pointers. All that before a freak elbow ended his season. He is still expected to miss another month and a half. London team doctors examined Dolinish Read More
  • London Midseason Review +

    London is 36-12 at the midway point of the season. The team is in first place in the National Conference but has not been playing up to expectation. The defense has been stellar but the offense, while average 102 points, still remains a work in progress. Part of that is because Val Crumley has missed 17 games due to various injuries, part of that is the many new faces on the team. The team hopes that with a little more time, the offense will come together. One bright spot for the Knights has been rookie sensation Rocky Dunlap. The undrafted guard out of Baylor is averaging 12 points on 49.5% shooting in 24 minutes. That might not seem impressive but Read More
  • Work Still Needed In London +

    With the season halfway completed, London sits atop the National East division with a 29-8 record. The Knights are still looking for consistency as the coaching staff have juggled and mixed and matched the starting lineup and rotation. Injuries to key members have not helped the situation and the lack of a defined rotation having clearly frustrated some players. "To be honest, I'm more than frustrated. One night I'm starting, next game I'm coming off the bench. I've played center, power forward, small forward and shooting guard. What the hell? You don't even know your position anymore. I won't be surprised if I'm playing point guard and Val’s coming off the bench. You just never know. Its kind of insane Read More
