Thanksgiving week is here, but on the basketball courts of the IBA it is Week 12 of the Fall season. For the first time this season there is a new team on top: Schenectady Legends (6-0) are the lone undefeated team remaining as the St. Louis Trotters (9-1) dropped their first of the season last weekend.
International Racers (4-5) stunned the Trotters on November 22 with strong team-play and defense, winning 107-101. It was the third win in their past four game for the Racers, who could be a threat in the single-elimination playoffs.
Branding division team Jersey G-Force (0-1) make their IBA return this weekend playing the Legends on Friday and Saturday. Schenectady walked away 126-111 winners in their first matchup earlier this month.
The weekend schedule concludes with Kankakee County (5-5) traveling north to Lemont and face the Racers on Sunday night. The game is scheduled to be live audio broadcast on Arena Sports Net. Tip-off is scheduled for 8 PM at the Lithuanian World Center.
