MARCH 10, 2014, HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA - Halifax Rainmen power forward and center Tim Parham is now a part of history, recording the highest ever season rebound total for the National Basketball League of Canada with 429 rebounds.
The Chicago - native also ranks fourth in field goal percentage with 55.4 percent, and seventh in blocks per game with a 1.13 average.
'It's a very special accomplishment to me,' said Parham of his all star achievement. 'I am truly honored to be at the top of the list in the Canadian basketball records book...it's just an unbelievable feeling!'
Breaking records isn't the only reason Parham has to celebrate; he and his fellow Rainmen have just advanced to the next level of the Atlantic Division Championship after beating the Saint John Mill Rats 3 - 1 in the playoffs series.
'[This accomplishment] has given me a lot of momentum in the playoffs as well,' continued Parham. 'We just beat the top seed to advance to the division finals. To have started 0 - 11 and do that shows a lot of character and heart. I appreciate my teammates, coaching staff, fans and the whole Halifax Rainmen organization.'
The Rainmen will next face off against the Prince Edward Island Storm, with dates and times to be determined.
