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

COURTKINGS TAKE DOWN VISION TO CLAIM BACK TO BACK CHAMPIONSHIPS - 5 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 - 5 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]
