After serious road tests against the Minnesota Broncos and the Chicago Legends, the Cedar Valley CourtKings will hit the road for the final game of their current three game road trip as they travel to Illinois capital of Springfield to take on the Springfield Panthers on Sunday, May 27.
This will be the first meeting between the Cedar Valley and Springfield. The CourtKings enter this game with an undefeated 6-0 record, coming off a miraculous 125-116 overtime win last Saturday against the Legends in Chicago. For Springfield, they currently sit at 5-3 and two games behind the Chicago Fury for the Southwest Division lead. Despite a strong effort, the Panthers lost a closely contested game in Rochester against the Roadrunners last week 133-120, to drop their second consecutive game.
Once again the CourtKings are expected to face another tough team looking to snap their league record 34 game winning streak against Midwest Basketball League opponents. In all of their matchups this season, the Panthers have scored over 100 points and have played toe to toe against some of the CourtKings biggest rivals to the very end.
Tip off for Sunday’s game is set for 3:00pm in Springfield. Joel Wauters will provide the online radio call of the game for fans on cvcourtkings.com. Fans can tune into the pregame show online beginning at 2:50pm.
