History was made on Saturday as the Midwest Basketball League made its on-court debut in Hamilton, Ohio. The host team Hamilton Heroes walked away as the winner defeating Indiana Dream 128-112.

Opening day for the Dayton Air Strikers and Indiana Fury proved to be a big event at Vandalia Recreation Center. Both teams put on a great display for their first game of the MBL season with Dayton coming away with the comeback victory 124-112.

A close game throughout, Dayton lead early only to see the Fury battle in the second quarter to take a 62-55 advantage into the halftime break. Indiana were led by guard Zach Payton (6'5''-G, college: Redlands CC), who poured in a game-high 44 points while adding 13 rebounds.

By midway into the third quarter the AirStrikers pounded away at the lead eventually retaking the lead 83-82. By the end of the quarter the game still was up for grabs with Dayton leading 90-88. A strong final quarter propelled the home team to a victory, their first since 2013 when the team went on hiatus after a brief run in the CBL.

27-year old Payton led all scorers with 44 points. His backcourt partner Moses Sullivan (6'1''-G, college: Franciscan) chipped in 27 points while Jaemile Barnes (6'4''-F) scored 14 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Xavier Nieves (6'3''-G/F) (11 points) and Brandon Mosley (10 points) also scored in double-figures for the Fury.

Stats for the Dayton Air Strikers were unavailable at press time.

Next weekend will see Dayton (1-0) welcome the Northern Indiana Monarchs for a Saturday night matchup. The Fury (0-1) will stay on the road to take on their in-state opponent Indiana Dream (0-1) on Sunday.
