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.

Fury use balanced attack to rout Rangers in Chicago - 8 days ago
The Minnesota Rangers headed into Chicago on Saturday to do battle against a well balanced Fury team who has been staggering teams with its defense as of late. Both of these teams have been playing some good basketball but the only team Chicago wanted to be talked about was them as they jumped all over Minnesota early leading 37-16 to end the first period. Despite the Rangers slow start big Dominique Dawson (6'8''-C/F-91, college: Ky Wesleyan) and Latrell Love (6'5''-PF-93, college: Miss....   [read more]

Records Are Made To Be Broken - 18 days ago
Joe Thomasson(6'4''-G-93, college:Wright St.)Thomasson (#1 M.V.P. Candidate) made it a point to get everyone involved. Thomasson who is averaging 30.2 pts. per game (3rd in the league). Had a stellar all around performance against the Indiana Dream. Mr Do it All on top of scoring 27 pts. added 15 rebs. and set up his teammates time and time again dishing out 19 ast. to break the all time league record previously (16) set by Chris McHenry in the first season of the league in 2016..

Thomasson and McGee put on a show in Ohio - 19 days ago
The Kentucky Flash rolled into Dayton on Saturday night with one thing on their mind and that was to give the Airstrikers another loss at home like they did earlier in the season. But however Mr Joe Thomasson (6'4''-G-93, college: Wright St.) was not trying to have that as he put on a typical Joe type performance by setting the pace for his team as they went up by 14 leaving the Flash a little puzzled. Just as the Airstrikers were starting to cruise Patrick McGee(6'4''-G-87) (Flash) had d...   [read more]
