Central Basketball Association (CBA) – The Fort Wayne Flite held off the Indianapolis Blaze to repeat as league champions.  Trailing by three points, 93-90, with seven seconds remaining Indianapolis failed to tie the game with a wide-open three-point attempt, and then on the ensuing possession, down 95-92, missed another three-point shot at the buzzer, allowing Fort Wayne to win a second consecutive championship title.  Greg Foster led the Flite with 23 points followed by Mikel Brigham with 16 and Corey Wickware with 15.

Champions Indoor Football League (CIFL) –  The Duke City Gladiators (4-5) lost to the Dodge City Law (8-2) on Saturday, 65-62, in the closing seconds.    The win keeps the Law on top of the South Division and a bye week this weekend.

I love to get paid for writing but I continue to write anyway. It is something I feel driven to do. I may not always get the grammar correct but I hope I can entertain whoever reads it.
