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

Four Midwest Basketball League teams remain unbeaten after Week 5 - 20 days ago
After five weeks of play in the 26-team Midwest Basketball League just four teams remain unbeaten. With the regular season extending until the end of June there is plenty of time for playoff positions to be won. Two Chicago rivals sit atop the MBL East Division with both Chicago Fury (5-0) and Chicago Knights (5-0) yet to taste defeat. They have a date on June 1 in the first of two head-to-head matchups. Just east of Lake Michigan there are two clubs on the heels of their friends from t...   [read more]
Fort Wayne Ballers move to 5-0 - 24 days ago
The Fort Wayne Bubba Ballers have been running through the MBL East Division as of late posting a perfect 5-0 record. On Saturday the Ballers made the trip down to Muncie to take on the Indiana Dream. In what was suppose to be a close game Fort Wayne used a balanced attack to send the Dream in lala land with a 127-109 rout. In order to improve to 6-0 the Ballers will have to do it on the road in one of the most hostile environments in the MBL against the Chicago Fury   [read more]
