Veteran Hicks guides CourtKings past Rochester, 118-91 - Apr 30, 2018

Aundre Hicks (6'2''-PG-88)' passion for the game of basketball continues to help fuel the Cedar Valley CourtKings into his third season with the team. The former Muscatine prep who played at Black Hawk Community College in Moline, Ill., accompanied an ability to distribute by often finding his shot Sunday night inside the Cedar Valley SportsPlex. Hicks scored a game-high 25 points, leading the CourtKings to an 118-91 win over Rochester. 'I love it,' said Hicks, who shined after last weekend's road games were cancelled by a spring snowstorm. 'There's nothing like playing basketball with a group of guys that you really enjoy being around.' CourtKings coach Michael Mohlis knows the value his returning players like Hicks have provided in maintaining the team's tradition of success. 'He's a great veteran leader for us and bleeds CourtKings basketball,' Mohlis said. 'He and Raijon Kelly (6'4''-G-93, college: Angelo St.) are great ones to coach because they want to facilitate for other guys. When you have guys leading you that want to facilitate and help other guys get shots, it makes everything a lot easier.' Cedar Valley (2-0) won its 28th consecutive game inside the Midwest Basketball League by pulling away with 70 points over the middle two quarters, after holding a 23-20 lead following the first stanza. 'That's what our team is made of,' Hicks said. 'We're pretty deep so we're used to wearing teams down.' When Hicks wasn't scoring himself, he was often feeding first-year MBL standout Brady Burford (6'6''-PF-91, college: William Penn) who finished with 23 points. Burford backed up his 34-point debut against North Minneapolis by continuing to electrify the crowd with a variety of dunks - the most impressive of which was a well-time flush off Raheem Tyner (6'7''-F-93, college: Iowa Western CC)'s missed 3-pointer. 'Brady is a man among boys,' Hicks said. 'We love Brady. He's strong, good touch, really athletic and plays hard.' David Stanley (5'9''-PG, college: Concordia-St.Paul), another of the CourtKing holdovers, led the second unit with four 3-pointers and 18 points. Former University of Sioux Falls guard Mackenzie Johnson (5'7''-G) drained three 3-pointers in his Cedar Valley debut. Rochester (0-2) was led by Lemuel Doe (6'1''-PG, college: Anoka-Ramsey)'s 24 points over three quarters, but none of his teammates were able to find their shooting touch against a CourtKings team that surrendered just 38 first-half points. The Roadrunners shot 39 of 109 from the field. 'We are starting to figure out the defensive end which is huge,' Mohlis said. 'It was a pretty darn good performance from our guys defending, keeping guys in front. The big we have to work on is boxing out.' Cedar Valley returns to action against the Minnesota Broncos 7:30 p.m. Sunday inside the SportsPlex.
