Sioux Falls Skyforce Have Enough Traction to Defeat Grand Rapids Drive

Subscribe to KDEZ-FM / Easy 100.1 on

Each team had their moments, but Sioux Falls made the biggest moves in the second half to top Grand Rapids 111-105 on Wednesday night at the DeltaPlex Arena.

Everybody has injuries and players have to fill roles when necessary. The Sioux Falls Skyforce (8-2) have not fielded a full roster of ten eligible players since before Thanksgiving.

The trend for the Grand Rapids Drive (4-6) coming into the Wednesday night skirmish has been to lean heavy on the starters. With Jordan Crawford as a last-minute scratch for the contest, the Drive used only eight players.

A bit more balance served the ‘Force well as Briante Weber notched 18 points and 10 rebounds. Rookie Ike Nwamu had his best night as a pro by adding 18 of his own. Keith Benson’s double-double consisted of 16 points and 11 rebounds as the visitors had five players in double digit scoring.

For the Drive, Kevin Murphy led the way with 33 points and 9 rebounds. Ray McCallum supplied 24 tallies with Zeke Upshaw scoring 23.

Sioux Falls will try for the road swing sweep at Raptors 905 on Friday. Grand Rapids hosts Delaware on Saturday night.
