In Week 8 of play in the IBA season two teams will finally make their debut while the top two teams in the league will clash. Schenectady Legends, the 2012 spring season runner-up, begin their 12-game schedule in pursuit of their first IBA Championship against the expansion Binghamton Pioneers. The game is being played on Saturday afternoon at Binghamton High School and will stream live online here.
Saturday night in St. Louis the undefeated Trotters (5-0) will host second place Kenosha Ballers (4-1) in their first of two matchups this season. St. Louis has had several games go down to the wire but have come out on top each time. Their latest victory was against the International Racers, 91-87 on October 18.
Kenosha has been outscoring opponents to win, averaging 135 points-per-game this season. Their lone loss was a 141-137 result against Kankakee on October 12.
