A successful first season will come to a conclusion this weekend when the Midwest Basketball League crown a champion in Minneapolis. Six teams will meet at the Sports Center to find out who is the top MBL team of 2016.

Today, the minor league announced its' first league award winners along with First, Second and Third All-League winners.

For his outstanding play on the court, the league has named Zack Payton (6'5''-G/F, college: Redlands CC) league Player of the Year. At 6'5 the guard/small forward has done it all for his team, the Indiana Fury. Payton led all league scorers at 35.9 points per game while adding 12.5 rebounds and 8.8 assists.

Honored by the award, Payton was quick to thank the people involved in his journey.

'First and foremost I wanna Thank God My Lord & Savior - the inventor of this beautiful gift & passion that he has given me for the game of basketball.'

'Secondly, I want to thank my mother and my father. When everyone said write him off. They still believed. Thirdly, I have to thank my teammates & coaches. They make me look better than what I am. I'm probably one of the toughest teammates to have but they stick with me day in & day out.'

Payton also commented on the opportunity to play in the Midwest Basketball League with the Indiana Fury.

'I appreciate the MBL for the professionalism that is shown throughout the league. With all that being said, this [MVP] wasn't my goal. My teammates and I want the championship trophy to come back to Fort Wayne with us. So by all means we gone make that happen.'

Fury use balanced attack to rout Rangers in Chicago - 9 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 - 19 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 - 20 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]
