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.

Dabriawn Johnson and Knights take title to Chicago - 1 month ago
The Chicago Knights knew heading into this game that they would need to close out the series at home otherwise face a game 3 back in Green Bay.

COURTKINGS TAKE DOWN VISION TO CLAIM BACK TO BACK CHAMPIONSHIPS - 3 months ago
Huntsville,Tx-------- The Midwest Basketball League had its 2017 Championship game this past weekend on the campus of Sam Houston State University. Both teams arrived to the arena with a police escort and as they went through pregame interviews you could see the excitement on their faces on how the day started off. Once the ball was in the air it was indeed a dog fight as the Vision and the CourtKings would exchange spurts in the game going on runs of their own. Toward the end it was all...   [read more]

CourtKings run the table, capture second straight MBL title - 3 months ago
Throughout the season, coaches and players of the Cedar Valley CourtKings have said winning another Midwest Basketball League title was far more important than finishing the year undefeated. But on Saturday night, they managed to accomplish both goals. Raijon Kelly (6'4''-G-93, college: Angelo St.) scored 34 points and Cedar Valley capped a 19-0 season with a 121-106 win over the Ft. Wayne Vision in the MBL championship game on the campus of Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Tex...   [read more]
