The Tampa Bay Rebels and Heartland Prowl faced off in the final regular-season meeting between the top two teams in the Florida Basketball Association standings. In front of a crowd of families and basketball enthusiasts, the two teams played every possession with great energy. Tampa Bay got off to a hot start, jumping out to a 16-0 lead, but the Prowl made some quick changes to their starting and got back in the contest with good effort on the defensive end and sharp shooting. Six Rebels finished in double figures as they pushed Tampa Bay to a 117-102 victory.
The Rebels, who now stand at 10-1, will head to Palm Beach next week to conclude their regular season.
