Enforcers Return Home This Weekend For Last Games of 2016
COVINGTON, KY - December 13, 2016 - After winning their first game of the year on the road, the Kentucky Enforcers played their next five games at home, winning all of them, and playing their way to a number one ranking in the ABA (now ranked third, based upon ABA’s formula used to calculate power rankings).
The Enforcers took their 6-0 record back on the road when they took on Team Network at historic St. Cecilia gym in snowy Detroit on Sunday afternoon. The four hour drive didn’t seem to bother the Enforcers who cruised their way to a 143-98 victory.
All nine players who scored for the Enforcers, scored in double figures as the team shot 60.8% from the field. The Enforcers also controlled the boards with four players collecting double digit rebounds against the smaller Team Network.. They were led by the three-headed post monster of Eric Hicks (22 pts, 11 reb, 2 blk), Jeff Robinson (13 pts, 15 reb, 3 blk), and Ray Chambers (19 pts, 16 reb). Starting guards Aaron Miller (23 pts, 5 reb, 8 ast) and Da’Markco Foster (13 pts, 10 reb, 5 ast, 4 stl) added impressive stat lines as well.
“I'm very proud of the way our guys played Sunday,” said Enforcers head coach Dustin Driskell. “We had a lot of intensity from the start. Our defense was much better than it has been. We did a lot of things well. We still need to take care of the basketball better and tune up some other areas, but overall we were pleased with our performance. Our bigs are finally doing what they are supposed to and that's rebound and finish inside.” Driskell added, “We have a tough stretch of games ahead of us but we are looking forward to them.”
The Enforcers return home this weekend, December 17th and 18th, for their last two games in the calendar year. On Saturday, they host the Chicago Steam at 7:00 pm. On Sunday, the top 25 Steel City Yellow Jackets come in looking to avenge the 131-124 loss the Enforcers handed them in Pittsburgh to begin the season. Game time is 2:00 pm, doors at 1:15 pm.
The Enforcers have several treats planned for the weekend slate, including ticket giveaways, a musical performance, speakers from the D.A.R.E. program, and a visit from Santa. Tickets can be purchased by cash or credit card at the door for $10 for adults, and $5 for students and seniors. Weekend passes are available for admission to both games for $15.
