First MBL Regular Season Wraps This Weekend - Aug 3, 2016

A journey for most that began in November 2015, the first regular season of the Midwest Basketball League will conclude this weekend with two games scheduled in St. Paul. Playoff positions have been clinched so little rides on the outcome of either game other than pride.

Over a seven month period the start-up semi-professional MBL has seen plenty of ups-and-downs, including one team being removed (Chicago Clovers) from the league and a late replacement (Lincoln Lions) to the schedule, another team (Wisconsin Storm plan on returning in 2017) going on hiatus after six games and an ownership change (Indiana Fury) midway through the season.

From the opening tip on April 9 when Dayton Air Strikers defeated Indiana Fury in the very first league game the action on the court has been intense. Those same two teams from the MBL East Division quickly rose to the top of the standings and ended 1-2 with Dayton (13-1) and the Fury (10-3) earning their trip to Minneapolis for the MBL Championship August 19-21. Third place Hamilton Heroes (6-7) declined their berth to the playoff and will be replaced by the Indiana Dream.

The West Division was quite competitive all season with the Minnesota Rangers (11-3) finishing on top. They had plenty of competition from Cedar Valley CourtKings (10-4), Chicago Fury (9-4) and Lincoln Lions (5-4). Despite their 3-10 record the Minnesota Broncos were no pushover, dropping several close games. Expect the Rangers, CourtKings and Fury all to be contenders championship weekend.

Fans in the Twin Cities can get a glimpse of the playoff teams this weekend as the final two games of the regular season will be played Saturday at the Oxford Community Center. Lincoln face the Rangers at 1 PM.

Saturday, August 6

1 PM: Lincoln Lions at Minnesota Rangers

Thursday, August 11

6 PM: Lincoln Lions at Chicago Fury

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]
