Capitals comeback, Super Hawks win overshadowed by scary injury

As the Salem Capitals and Seattle Super Hawks walked off the court Sunday night, the energy inside Royal Brougham Pavilion wasn’t what you might expect following a fourth quarter double-digit comeback from Salem and a 107-105 win for the home team.

Nearly an hour prior it was electric as the Capitals mounted a comeback from down 18. But with 21 seconds left and the deficit cut to three, the building deflated.

That’s when Salem’s Isaiah Gentry and Seattle’s Broc Finstuen both went up for a pass near halfcourt. They collided in the air, a foul was called on Finstuen, and when he landed he suffered a serious lower leg injury.

Salem signs former Beavers big Kylor Kelley

The Salem Capitals added a big new piece last week, signing former Oregon State University Beaver Kylor Kelley following Kelley’s season with the Raptors 905 of the NBA G League.  
At 7-feet, the 25-year old Kelley gives the Capitals some much needed size inside.
