The Tampa Bay Rebels won their 5th straight game with a 127-95 victory over the Palm Beach Knights this past Saturday night at Freedom High School. Both teams played the game at a fast pace. Unlike last weekend, the Rebels started the game playing strong defense and running the floor effectively to take control of the game early on.
Rebels guard Robert Fuchs continues to improve his game, grabbing 9 rebounds and adding 10 points in the contest. “Rob is becoming a solid defensive player, tonight he took a defensive charge, and his rotation on the defensive end is helping our transition game,” Coach Rojas commented after the game. Center Charles Okwandu had another strong showing with 32 points and 16 rebounds. Guard Stan Bufford also added a double-double of his own with 23 points and 10 rebounds.
The Rebels will hit the road again next weekend when they face-off against the Heartland Prowl in Lake Wales. Please visit www.tampabayrebels.com for additional information.
