Damien Lolar
The Minnesota Rangers are on the road this weekend headed to Milwaukee to take on the Wisconsin Storm Saturday, April 30. After a dominant showing at home during week one the Rangers are looking to make it two-straight as they begin a three-game stretch on the road. The Storm, on the other hand, fell to the Chicago Fury last week (106-89) and will be looking to make up ground and get their first win of the season. This will be the first of a three-game season series with the Storm.

Players to watch
Kenneth Bass (G) really lit things up for the Rangers coming in just shy of a triple-double (17 points, 10 assists, 8 steals) shooting 70% from the field and will likely be another huge weapon on offense this week.

Against the Broncos, sixth man Damien Lolar (6'5''-F-84, college: W.Texas A&M) (F) was unstoppable, shooting 100% (7-of-7 from two-point range; 2-of-2 beyond the arc) to end the game with 21 points. Look to see him help lift the Rangers again this week.

Guard Chris McHenry (6'3''-G-89, college: Pikeville) of the Storm wasn't shy last week with the triples, shooting 4-of-9 for 44.4%. If the trend continues he will be a real threat on the perimeter.

Numbers
33 and 17 - The number of points by which the Rangers won and Storm lost their home openers respectively.
1st - This is the first road game in Rangers history.
48.7 - Rangers left a lot of points out there against the Broncos shooting a rough 48.7% from the charity stripe last game and will hope to improve this week.

Injuries / Absences
The Rangers report no injuries. Rochester Rogers (6'3''-G-87, college: Missouri Valley) (F) and Tim Lott (G/F, college: Dakota Co. Tech) (F) will be absent for personal reasons. The Storm were unavailable to report at time of publication.

The Miracle in Chicago - 19 days ago
This past weekend we experienced a game for the ages and honestly we dont think we will ever see anything else like it. The Chicago Legends with a chip on their shoulder had a point to prove to the world that they could hang with the best of the best and on Saturday thats what they did as they gave the defending champs a run for their money. In the final frame the Chicago Legends were up 109-104 with 30 seconds left to play when Allstar Raijon Kelly (6'4''-G-93, college: Angelo St.) showe...   [read more]
