Season Tip Off!
The tip off of this season was very special indeed!
Being in a new city with the excitement that generates in itself made opening night truly great! That along with playing the Rochester Razorsharks after many years of this anticipated match up made this season's opener even more special.
For several years the Mavericks/Razorsharks match up has been talked about. With us moving from the ABA to the PBL this season it was a natural match up for us to face off as the Clash between Undefeated Champions.
The match up lived up to expectations and the avid basketball fans in Owensboro, Kentucky made it a truly special night at the Sportscenter Arena!
Rochester brought an experienced veteran team in to face our Mavs. We were tested for sure. But our depth and conditioning was the difference in the game! We pulled away late by a barrage of 3 point baskets by veteran Mavs guard/forward, PJ Couisnard. PJ scored a game high 32 points. Point Guard, Anthony Jackson scored 19 points and dished out 6 assist. The Twin Towers, Jon Rogers and Brandon Davis each scored 11 points and controlled the paint for the Mavs. Our Mavericks pulled away in the second half to win a hard fought 108-88 game.
Even though this was a great win for our Pro Basketball Organization, we know this was only round one against Rochester and that there will be big match-ups against them in the future down the line. Right now that is a plus for all involved. This will be a great rivalry for basketball in the PBL and for all who enjoy watching high quality professional basketball.
This week we continue to work to get better. The "Process of Preparation" is in full swing. Our focus is on Lake Michigan, where we travel to play Saturday night. We will then return home to the Sportscenter Arena on Monday night and Thursday night. Hope to see you there.
"GO MAVS -- MAV UP!"
