Fort Wayne Mastodons

The Mastodons started out the season great on a 13-2 run, but then hit a five-game losing streak in January. Fort Wayne has alternated wins with losses since then, taking out Northern Kentucky, Youngstown State, IUPUI and Detroit during a 4-3 run over their last seven.

In the Detroit matchup on Saturday, the Mastodons went into the second half with a 10-point edge. Fort Wayne kept it up in the second with a 37-33 run and took the eventual win 83-69. Quinton Morton-Robertson was the leading team scorer on 24 points and three steals.

Green Bay Phoenix

Over on the Green Bay side, they got off to a 12-9 start over their first 21 outings of the season. The Phoenix would then hit a five-game win streak over Oakland, Detroit, IUPUI, Robert Morris and Youngstown State before falling in a close one to Northern Kentucky last week.

Matched up against Northern Kentucky back on Valentine’s Day, the Phoenix were down by three points going into the locker room. Green Bay got better from there with a 33-31 run but couldn’t make the comeback on a 58-57 defeat. Tops in scoring was Noah Reynolds with 18 points, four assists and four rebounds in 31 minutes of work.


I’m going to lean toward Green Bay, but you could call this one either way. The Phoenix need a good offensive bounce-back after the home loss to a middling Northern Kentucky team. Green Bay hit just 35.2 percent from the field in that one and coughed up 11 turnovers. The Phoenix had hit 78 or more points in four straight games prior to that, however.

These teams last met up way back on November 29 in a 75-71 road loss for the Phoenix. Green Bay shot well (50.9 percent) and rebounded well (34) in that one, but the 16 turnovers really hurt their cause. If the Phoenix can clean up the mistakes they should be in line for a revenge cover in the home rematch.
