Last Sunday night, Cedar Valley CourtKing fans were treated to a thriller as the CourtKings (11-1) tightened their grip on the top spot in the MBL West Division with a 135-124 win over the Eagan Bulldogs. Now with only four games remaining in the regular season, the Kings prepare to host the third game in their current four game home stand as the Minnesota Broncos (6-6) ride into Waterloo this Saturday night, June 15 at 7:30PM.
In their last meeting on April 14, the CourtKings started out slow on defense before bolting out of gates and locking down the Broncos fast paced offense in the second half en route to 115-94 win in Anoka. Jaree Crawford led the way for Cedar Valley with 34 points, shooting 11 for 15 from the field. Emeche Wells scored 21, while Brady Burford recorded 16.
In the Cedar Valley win over Eagan last week, Burford’s game-high 30 points helped blaze the path to victory as six CourtKings scored in double-digit figures. Aundre Hicks finished the night with 27, while Anthony James scored 15. In his return to the CourtKings after playing in Spain, Mack Johnson tallied 15, as Jared Sutherland scored 12, and Wells with 11.
The Broncos enter this game having won two of their last three, which included a three point win over the Green Bay Area Titans, a three point win against the North Minneapolis Eagles, and a 118-97 loss to the Minnesota Lakers last weekend in St. Paul.
