Enforcers Remain Unbeaten, Target On Back Increases
COVINGTON, KY - January 9, 2018 - After earning a forfeit win due to a scheduling discrepancy in the final weekend of 2017, the Kentucky Enforcers entered the first weekend of 2018 with a 9-0 record, ranked #4 in the ABA Power Rankings.
The Enforcers took their impressive record on the road to Deerfield, Illinois on Saturday to take on the Libertyville Vipers. The Vipers were salivating at the chance to get the Enforcers in their home gym, five hours away from the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area, hoping to be the team to provide them with their first loss of the season.
Libertyville, like most of the Enforcers’ opponents, came out guns blazing and posted 31 first-quarter points. The Enforcers weathered the storm and held the Vipers to just 15 in the second quarter, taking a 24-point lead into halftime.
After winning the third quarter 38-24, the Enforcers took their biggest lead, 38 points, into the fourth. From there, they cruised to a 138-105 victory and kept their perfect season in tact.
The Kentucky Enforcers starting backcourt of Aaron Miller (Thomas More College) and Greg Williams (Princeton High School, Central Methodist University) combined for 54 points. Miller led the way with 32, and Williams added 22. Mohammed Fall chipped in a season-high 19 points off the bench. Scoring for the Enforcers by quarter: 34, 36, 38, 30. All ten players who dressed for the Enforcers scored.
Monday afternoon’s release of the updated ABA Power Rankings from the office of the commissioner saw the Enforcers jump up to their highest ranking in the team’s two-year history at #2.
Next up for the Enforcers is the La Crosse Showtime. The Enforcers stole a victory in La Crosse, Wisconsin December 9th when Aaron Miller made a three-pointer with one second remaining to stun a very good La Crosse team in front over a thousand fans. Surely they will be seeking retribution this Saturday when they come into the Enforcers’ home gym, Cincinnati Christian University at 7:00 PM. Doors open at 6:00. Tickets can be purchased with CASH ONLY for $10 for adults, $5 for students and seniors. Children 5 and under are free.
