PEORIA 96, COLUMBUS 90: (Peoria, Ill.) - When these two clubs met last week in Ohio, Columbus handed Peoria a record-breaking loss. Today's match-up was anything but lopsided. Peoria dominated the first half, jumping out to 11-point lead at the midway point. Columbus started the second half with a 7-0 run, and ultimately took the lead at 68-66 with a minute left in the third period. But unlike Peoria teams in the past, which have had a history of collapsing in the fourth quarter, today's squad put on the best final period performance in their team's four-year history. Peoria outscored Columbus 19-2 during a five-minute stretch of the fourth quarter to lead by as many as 13 points, before holding on to the 6-point upset victory. Peoria (1-4) earned their first win of the season, and were led by the league's leading scorer, Marvin Jordan (5'11''-PG), who scored 27 points, followed by Bobby Anderson with 13 points. Columbus (3-3) only had four players who scored points the entire game, led by Brett McKnight (6'6''-F, college: Akron) with 31 points, followed by Anthony Hitchens (24 points), Tihon Johnson (6'4''-G-82, college: Mountain St.) (18 points), and Trent Weaver (17 points). Columbus finishes their last two games of the season at home, with next weekend's matchup against Springfield. Peoria hosts Indianapolis next Saturday night in a critical matchup to avoid being in last place in the North Division.

FORT WAYNE 99, INDIANAPOLIS 88: (Indianapolis, Ind.) - In the second leg of a home-and-home matchup between the two Indiana teams, the game started off similar to last night, with a tight battle back-and-forth. Up until the end of the third quarter, Indianapolis and Fort Wayne had 15 lead changes and 8 ties, with the largest lead for either team at five points. But it was final frame where Fort Wayne took over, aided by 9-0 run to start the fourth quarter, followed by a 7-0 run with under three minutes left, helping them cruise to a comfortable 11-point victory. The win this afternoon places Fort Wayne head coach Rod Wilmont as the all-time winningest coach in league history with 18 wins in his third season in the CBA, passing Middle Tennessee's Nathan Willhite who had 17 wins from 2013-2015. Fort Wayne (5-0) was led by Greg Foster (6'2''-G-89, college: Saginaw Valley) with 29 points and Corey Wickware (5'10''-G) with 15 points. Indianapolis (1-3) was led by Chrishawn Hopkins with 22 points and Dion Smith with 19 points. Fort Wayne hosts Springfield next Saturday, where they can clinch the North Division with a victory. Indianapolis travels to Peoria on Saturday to get their second victory in Illinois this season.

MIDDLE TENNESSEE 102, BOWLING GREEN 99
: (Russellville, Ky.) - The defending champions, Bowling Green, entered this game on a six-game winning streak dating back to last year, and a nine-game home winning streak dating back a couple seasons. Their last loss was March 1, 2014 in their home opener versus Middle Tennessee. And ironically, their winning streak fell this afternoon against their rivals from Nashville. Middle Tennessee, who won the league title in 2014, dominated play in the first half, leading by as many as 18 points. But Bowling Green slowly chipped away at the double-digit lead in the second half, cutting the deficit to eight points with 90 seconds left in the game. At that point things got interesting, as Bowling Green went on a 8-1 run in the next 60 seconds to put the game at 100-99. After Middle Tennessee hit two free throws, Bowling Green (2-1) could not tie the game on their last possession, allowing Middle Tennessee (3-0) to keep their undefeated record intact. Middle Tennessee was led by Joshua Sain with 33 points, and Frank Thaxton (6'2''-G-88, college: Tennessee St.) with 17 points. Bowling Green was led by Rearkus McCrory with 28 points and Fred Sturdivant (6'7''-F-91, college: Texas Southern) with 23 points. The two teams will face each other again next Sunday afternoon in Nashville.
