Skyforce Salute Troops With A Win

Skyforce Salute Troops With A Win
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Sioux Falls Skyforce defeated the Delaware 87ers 100-93 Friday night at the Sanford Pentagon. In a tightly contested game with 22 lead changes, Sioux Falls used two late threes and consistent defensive pressure to win its second straight.

The turnover battle was strongly one-sided as Delaware (3-19) turned it over 31 times to Sioux Falls’ 16. Sioux Falls (13-7) had four times as many steals (16) as Delaware (4) and notched 23 fast-break points to Delaware’s 13. DeAndre Liggins led all performers with seven steals on the night.

Sioux Falls struggled behind the arc for most of the night until two timely 3-pointers by Liggins and Justin Hamilton. Both hit long-range shots with under 1:27 to play to help Sioux Falls to a seven-point win, the largest Skyforce lead of the contest.

Sioux Falls was led by Justin Hamilton, who scored a game-high 23 points and shot a perfect 10-of-10 from the free throw line. Four other players also scored in double figures for Sioux Falls as Liggins, Tre Kelley, Anthony Mason Jr. and Henry Walker scored 15, 14, 13 and 12 points, respectively. Larry Drew II came off the bench to lead the team with seven assists and Walker led Sioux Falls with nine rebounds.

Delaware had four players score double figures, and three of them came off the bench to do so. Matt Bouldin led the team with 16 points followed by Vander Blue with 13, Ben Strong with 11 and Tiny Gallon with 10. The bench outscored the 87ers starters 25-16 in the second half and 49-44 for the entire contest.

 

The same two teams will tangle tomorrow night at the Sanford Pentagon at 7 p.m. CT.
