(Owensboro, Ky) – Round 2 of Battle of The Champions takes place in Rochester, New York when the Kentucky Mavericks face off against the Rochester Razorsharks on Sunday, March 6 at 1 p.m. CST. Rochester is the two-time Defending PBL Champions while the Kentucky Mavericks hold strong their number one standing in the PBL.

Defensively, the Mavericks have been astounding, only allowing 91 points per game, the lowest in the PBL. This has led to the best record in their new league, a perfect 11-0. The Razorsharks came out slow this season, starting 2-2. Since that point, a 9 game winning streak has put the Razorsharks back as the best team in the Northeast Division, and the second best record in the PBL, following the Kentucky Mavericks.

Both teams have revamped their rosters with new players of drastically different sizes. The Mavericks brought in point guard Jamal Fenton, University of New Mexico. Fenton stands at 5’10, the smallest player on the Mavs rosters. Rochester went the other direction, signing 7’8, 305 pound Bob Wegner from Great Bay CC.

These two teams met in the opening game of the season in front of a crowded Sportscenter. The Mavericks flexed their muscle, winning convincingly 108-88. PJ Couisnard led the way for the Mavericks, hitting seven 3-pointers in his game high 32 points. Anthony “The Jet” Jackson also chipped in with 19 points and a team high 6 rebounds for the point guard.

You can catch the game live on ESPN3 or Watch ESPN App at 1 p.m. CST.
