Six Skyforce players scored in double-digits tonight as Greg Whittington (6'8''-F-93, college: Rutgers) led with 23 points and 8 rebounds. Keith Benson (6'11''-C-88, college: Oakland) recorded his league-leading 30th double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds. Bubu Palo (6'1''-G-91, college: Iowa St.) (20 points and eight assists), Patrick Miller (6'1''-PG-92, college: Tennessee St.) (22 points, four rebounds and three assists), and Ike Nwamu (16 points and five rebounds) rounded out the majority of the scoring in the win for Sioux Falls. Sioux Falls outscored Northern Arizona by a margin of 60-40 in the paint, and tallied 35 assists as a team led by Larry Drew II (13 assists) who notched nine assists without attempting a field goal in the first half alone. Elijah Millsap (6'6''-G-87, college: UAB) (24 points), Shaquille Harrison (6'4''-G-93, college: Tulsa) (22 points), and Josh Gray (6'1''-PG-93, college: LSU) (20 points) led the way for the Suns in the loss. Washington Wizards assignee Chris McCullough (6'10''-F-95, college: Syracuse) scored 13 points and collected five rebounds off the bench, and Alex Davis (11 points) and Askia Booker (16 points) rounded out the double-digit scoring for Northern Arizona. The Skyforce were plagued by turnovers throughout the night, allowing 28 points off of 22 turnovers, but were able to overcome their mistakes in the win. Sioux Falls also outrebounded the Suns 47-32, improving to 21-2 in games in which they have outrebounded their opponents. The Skyforce were able to stay within reach of the 2017 playoffs, and need to win their final three games and receive help from the Santa Cruz Warriors (29-19) to sneak their way in. Sioux Falls needs to finish with a better overall record than the Warriors, as they would lose all tie-breaker scenarios. The Skyforce play at home for the final time this season on Tuesday, March 28 against the Iowa Energy at 6:30 PM CT at the Sanford Pentagon, while the Northern Arizona Suns travel back home to face the Austin Spurs on Wednesday, March 29.
