Indiana Fury End Air Strikers run, grab Share of lead

For the 1st month of the season, the Dayton Air Strikers have shown they were the premiere team in the MBL.
Not just the East, the MBL.

Well, looks as if they have some company at the top, as the Indiana Fury, led by the leading scorer in the league,dominated the 4th quarter to sprint past the Air Strikers on Saturday 135-117. For the first three quarters both clubs was in a back and forth battle before the Fury pulled away.

Two of the highest scoring teams in the league didn't disappoint, and put on a show for the Indiana crowd. It proved to be a battle that lived up to the hype going into the game.

The Air Strikers kept it competitive throughout the night and looked as if they would be 5-0 after taking a 3 point lead heading into the 4th; The Fury came out, played inspired ball, and took it to Dayton, outscoring the Air Strikers 49-28 in the 4th qtr. Dayton, who appeared sluggish early, and seemed to have an off night, was tapped in the 4th, due to the Fury D, and offensive explosion.

Reggie Lytle (6'2''-G-90, college: MCC-Penn Valley) (41) & MBL leading scorer Zach Payton (6'5''-G/F, college: Redlands CC) (31) combined to score almost half of the Fury points themselves. The Fury had 5 guys in double figures. Reggie Lytle (6'2''-G-90, college: MCC-Penn Valley) hit 7 3-ptrs and was dominant all night.Zach Payton (6'5''-G/F, college: Redlands CC) had a great night as well, and added 2 long balls.

The Air Strikers suffered their first defeat of the season (4-1) & the Fury now are tied with Dayton in the East. In talking with a Air Striker player, he felt Indiana caught them on a bad day, and is already looking forward to the rematch.

Hamilton holds off Northern Indiana 83-77, moves 1 game out of first place

The Heroes got a couple key players back, and the results paid off as they squeezed out a tough 83-77 battle on Saturday.
Lamont Cole (G) & Bryan Tingle (6'5''-F-87) led the charge with double doubles, both scoring 23 points and the Heroes pulled out a tough win. Cole, (younger cousin of Norris Cole), had a great game with 12 boards, and also hit 4 3's as well.

The Monarchs had their chances late, but couldn't hit the big shots when it counted.Moses Sullivan (6'1''-G, college: Franciscan) led Monarchs with 21 points, with Julian Thompson (6'7''-F) (13) & Jordan Hester (6'0''-PG, college: Robert Morris) (14) chipping in. While both teams shot poorly, Hamilton destroyed Northern Indiana on the boards, with a 60-31 advantage.

Hamilton moves to 3-2, now only a game out of first place, while Northern Indiana falls to 1-4.

CourtKings rallied to win in OT - 8 hours ago
The Cedar Valley CourtKings needed a little extra time, but the two-time defending Midwest Basketball League champions found a way to stay undefeated with a 125-116 overtime win over the Chicago Legends Saturday. With 1.9 seconds left, Raijon Kelly (6'4''-G-93, college: Angelo St.) was fouled while attempting a three-pointer and Cedar Valley trailing by four. After making his first two, Kelly missed his third intentionally allowing Johnny Jackson (6'9''-C) to grab the rebound, pass it to...   [read more]

CourtKings fight off Minnesota Lakers, 122-113 - 12 days ago
The one thing that Cedar Valley Court Kings coach Michael Mohlis has not done since taking over the top job is lose.

But Sunday night, that mark was threatened by the visiting Minnesota Lakers. Trailing most of the game, the CourtKings rallied late and pulled off a 122-113 Midwest Basketball League victory over the Lakers at the Ce...   [read more]
