On Saturday January 9, the second place Hudson Valley Kingz traveled down to the College of Southern Maryland in La Plata, Maryland to take on first place Beltway Bombers. The Kingz started off the game on an impressive 11-0 run. The Kingz led throughout most of the first quarter before the Bombers took control finishing the quarter strong scoring 38 points.

The second quarter began with the momentum in favor of the Bombers way despite the Kingz best efforts. Despite being short handed and down by as many as 14 points in the third quarter, Hudson Valley fought hard and played together. A very poised bunch, Kingz were not phased by a normally intimidating atmosphere.

The fourth quarter was a fight between these league leading teams. The Kingz, through much adversity, managed to take a four-point lead with about two mins left in the game. From there the dynamics of the game changed. The Bombers were able to draw multiple fouls down the stretch to pull off a 115-111 victory. In total the Bombers shot 44 free throws in the contest, a major factor in their win.

Donald Herring, head coach of the Hudson Valley Kingz went on to say, 'There were too many questionable calls made in favor of the home team today. Its very rare that you can win a game on the road when the home team shoots 44 free throws.' Following the loss, the Kingz fall to 5-2.

Nate Gause (6'4''-G, college: Le Moyne) led the way for the Kingz with 19 points, 21 rebounds, also added 8 blocks. Jimmy Bosque (6'3''-G-89) and Davonne Dunlap (6'3''-F, college: Dominican, NY) had 17 points a piece, Shereef Taylor (6'2''-G, college: New Paltz St.) had 16 points and Andre Pope (5'11''-PG-90, college: St.Rose, NY) contributed 14 points and 8 assists off the bench.

The Hudson Valley Kingz returned to the court on January 18 to face New York Fearless. Coming off a tough 115-111 loss to the league leading Beltway Bombers the Kingz were hungry from the tip. They jumped out to a big lead in the 1st few minutes of the game. Jimmy Bosque picked up two quick fouls and was forced to the sidelines, but the Kingz were rolling.

Nate Gause, the newly crowned face of the Kingz, had himself a career night. He began the game attacking with multiple drives to rim and mid-range jumpers. He finished the first half with 36 points and the Kingz were on their way to a likely blowout win.

The second half began with sloppy play from the Kingz. Fearless were able to take advantage of the miss cues and began chipping slowly away at the lead. Jimmy Bosque returned to the court early in the third quarter. After being held score less in the first due to foul trouble He went on to score 22 points in the second half.

Despite commanding a 30-point lead in the first half, the lead dwindled to just single digits with minutes remaining in the game. Key possessions and timely stops helped the Kingz to hold on for the 121-105 win.

Jimmy Bosque finished the game the 22 points, Shereef Taylor contributed 10 points and 14 assists while Kevin Briggs (7'0''-C, college: ASA) recorded a triple-double with 12 points 21 rebounds and 12 blocks. But the night belonged to Nate Gause who finished with monster double-double. He tallied a career-high 55 points. This total is the second highest scoring total in Kingz history for a single game. He also added 20 rebounds, 7 assists and 3 blocks. With the win the Hudson Valley Kingz improve to 6-2 on the season.

Beltway Bombers - 5 months ago
The 2X American Professional Basketball League (APBL) champion Beltway Bombers do not use the the "defending ".
