Let The 2015 Games Begin
Although we're in the same season, it's a new year. This gives hope to some teams who have recently fallen back in the standings such as the defending Midwest division champion, Indianapolis Diesels, who currently occupies last place in their division after a slow 1-3 start. The Lynchburg Titans and the Philadelphia Flight are the league's only two teams yet to win a game, but Philadelphia's fierce play has brought them close in tough games against the East's top two teams, Rochester and Carolina.

PBL GAME OF THE WEEK:
Rochester RazorSharks vs. Buffalo 716ers; Sunday, December 4th @1:00pm
The Premier Basketball League "Game of the Week" between the Rochester RazorSharks and the Buffalo 716ers could potentially be the most intense game of the weekend. The first game between these two resulted in a 108-95 victory for the RazorSharks and claiming first in the PBL East.
The RazorSharks struggled and trailed for most of the entire game until they were able counter on some costly Buffalo fouls and missed shots in the fourth quarter, resulting in a 13-point victory.
Jerice Crouch led the RazorSharks after scoring 25 points, but the real star that everybody was talking about was Anthony Stover. Stover had five points and three assists, but his defensive efforts is what turned the game around in Rochester's favor. Stover had seven blocked shots and 14 total rebounds.
Buffalo's player to watch is former RazorShark Robert McKiver. During their last meeting McKiver scored 24 points, posted four assists, pulled down five total rebounds and will look to have an even bigger game after being cut by the RazorSharks and then just fall short after almost defeating them.
The game will be broadcasted nationally on the Soul of the South network and ESPN3.
