Legend Notches Back-to-Back Road Wins
In the toughest scheduling situation the team will face all season, the Legend traveled to Brooklyn Sunday morning to face the Kings, only hours after getting their first road win of the season Saturday night at Pennsylvania. It would be their fourth game in as many days.

Even with fatigue and some minor injuries taking their toll, the Legend were able to outlast the Kings 99-91, for the first back-to-back wins of the season.

With Jermaine Williams nursing a tender groin, Deng Gai got the start at forward, and started with a flurry, blocking two shots on the first trip down the floor. Gai would finish with seven blocked shots in 22 minutes of play.

Dodge City shot 41.2 percent in the first half, and trailed 51-42 at the break.

The third quarter continued much the same as the first two, with the Legend trailing 70-62. The fourth quarter would be a different story, however, as the Legend heated up to shoot 60.8 percent, and outscore the Kings 37-21 to get the come-from-behind win.

Eric Chatfield paced Dodge City with 21 points, Chris Sockwell added 15, Julian Blanks had 14, Alfred Neale scored 12, and Keith Salscheider had 10, including two big three-pointers in the fourth quarter.

After a well-deserved day off, the Legend will be back in action Tuesday in a return-visit to Brooklyn to face the Kings.
