FINAL SCORE:

GAME COMMENTS:
The #1 ranked Shreveport-Bossier Mavericks had a full scale battle on their hands on Sunday afternoon at the Hirsch Memorial Coliseum in Shreveport, LA as the DFW Stars from the UBA pushed the Champs in every possible way like few have this season.

The Mavs were playing without the services of guard/forward Josh Pace, who was sidelined with the flu.

DFW's physical play and no give up attitude made the game most interesting throughout.

In the end, the SB Mavericks were too deep and too good as they prevailed over the scrappy bunch from Fort Worth, TX.
