Rio Grande Valley Rolls Past Sioux Falls Skyforce
The question now becomes, will the Sioux Falls Skyforce beat Rio Grande Valley this season? Up to this point the answer has been no. There is one more chance on Saturday night as RGV picked up a 124-106 victory over the Skyforce on Friday night. Only one of the previous games between the two teams was a single digit win. In a sense, the Vipers have Sioux Falls' number.
Former Skyforce player Andrew Goudelock who has been denied an NBA call-up so far this season stated his case yet again with a 27 point surge. Rio Grande Valley (32-15) also got a huge contribution from Houston Rockets assignee Terence Jones had a double-double of 23 points and 11 boards. Seth Tarver had 20 points, while Jarvis Varnado also scored 20 plus captured 12 rebounds. Demetris Nichols added 19 points for Sioux Falls (24-22) who still currently cling to a playoff spot, but are still within the clutches of Maine and Erie who are just behind in the standings.
