The Shreveport-Bossier Mavericks dominated the court on Thursday, December 20, defeating the Hattiesburg Hornets 131 to 63.

Cruising into their 10th straight win of the season, the Mavericks pulled down a team record 80 rebounds, with Brandon Davis leading the charge – corroborating their #2 ranking in the American Basketball Association (ABA) Power Rankings.

“Davis once again proved why he’s the most dynamic center in the ABA with another double/double performance of 16 rebounds and 10 points,” said head coach and general manager Steve Tucker.

The Mavericks’ leading scorers were Ed Horton and Chad Eichelberger with 19 points each; Mick Crain with 18 points; Alex Sanders with 13 points; Rafael Johnson with 11 points; and Davis. The Hornets’ leading scorers were J.R. Willis and Cam Avery with 16 points each; and Richard Carlisle with 10 points.

Going into their next game one win shy of 100, and a record 36 consecutive wins and 47 straight home wins, the Mavericks host the 28th ranked Jackson Showboats at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, December 28, in the history Hirsch Coliseum.

““It should be an exciting match-up,” said Tucker. “The Showboats are coming off an impressive showing against the #1 ranked Jacksonville Giants, where they lost a tough game, 144 to 133.”
