Monday, December 10, 2018 - St. Louis, MO – Is there a new sheriff in town?

 

The Spirits lose their first division game in a year when they fall to the Topeka Sizzlers this weekend 127-124 OT.

 

It was an epic battle as the Spirits managed control of most of the game.  However, the Topeka Sizzlers never gave up.  With the Spirits clinching to a 5 point lead late in regulation, the Sizzlers got 2 turnovers and capitalized with 3 free throws to tie up the game and hold off the Spirits last second attempt sending the game into overtime.  Both teams battled in OT but the Sizzlers offense pushed through to send the Spirits home with their 2nd road loss of the season.  

 

The Sizzlers bring some missed competition to the division and should be in contention within the South Central Region contending for a spot in the ABA Final 8.  Who knows, maybe these  teams will meet in the playoffs for another epic battle.  

 

With this weeks loss, the Spirits slide to a tie for 21st in the ABA Top 25 rankings

The next home game will be on December 15, 2018 against the Chicago Steam.  This will be the first meeting between these teams and the teams are a strong veteran team.  It will be interesting to see the outcome of this clash of midwest powers.
