To account for 18 teams and two games played per team at the NBADL Showcase, a creative format is born for the 2015 edition.  

What it means for the Sioux Falls Skyforce is a chance to prove themselves in this near mid-season event.  It’s the Maine Red Claws against the ‘Force on Thursday, January 15 at 5:30pm from Kaiser Permanente Arena in Santa Cruz.

Regardless of the outcome, the Skyforce are locked into a Saturday contest.  A win means an 11pm CT tipoff.  A loss means a 5:30 pm start.  Round 2’s opponent will be either the Canton Charge or the Santa Cruz Warriors pending the result of their contest which is also on Thursday.

For a wider picture of the Showcase agenda continue below.
