Fresh off their thrilling 121-119 win over the defending Midwest Basketball League champions T.C. Elite last Saturday in Minneapolis, the Cedar Valley CourtKings (6-1) return home for their final home game of May this Sunday at the Cedar Valley SportsPlex in Waterloo.
Taking to the court this weekend to challenge the CourtKings are the North Minneapolis Eagles (0-7), a team that, despite its record, has shown they can compete with the best of the best in the MBL West. In their second game of the season against the Minnesota Lakers, the Eagles fell one point shy of victory after the Lakers shot the game-winning free throws to close out the game. North Minneapolis also came four points shy of defeating the Green Bay Area Titans, falling 109-106 on April 20 in Wisconsin.
With the win at T.C. Elite last Saturday, the CourtKings are currently riding the longest active win streak in the division, having claimed victory in their last five games after dropping their first game on the road to the Eagan Bulldogs in the second week of the season.
A season-high seven CourtKing players ended Saturday’s game with double-digit scoring figures, led by Emeche Wells with 25 points. Brady Burford finished with a double-double with 22 points and 12 rebounds, as did Anthony James with 11 points and 11 assists. Jaree Crawford also scored 17 points, while David Stanley notched 15, Aundre Hicks with 14 and Queshawn Roby with 10 points.
