The Stingers currently sit in the middle of the pack in the CEBL standings with a 2-2 record. Edmonton has played pretty well overall to start the season. So far they’ve split with the Niagra River Lions, a loss to the Honey Badgers and a victory over the Nighthawks.
Adika is expected to provide strong minutes in the backcourt for a Stingers team that is looking to go above .500 for the first time this year since the home opener.
The Stingers will be back in action with Adika on the roster on May 31st as they take on the Saskatchewan Rattlers at 7 PM from the Edmonton Expo Centre. You can get your tickets for Stingers home games at https://www.thestingers.ca/tickets
