The Elkhart Express have yet to really experience losing.
This season, the Chicago Heights (0-17) have only experienced losing.
So it made sense that both streaks continued Friday night in Elkhart as the Express defeated the Heights 142-137 in the 1st round of the IBL Eastern Conference Playoffs.
Guard Coleco Buie led the way for Elkhart with 45 points. He was 17-20 shooting on the night.
The hometown crowd seemed to love the action. And they'll get to cheer on the Express all weekend long.
Saturday night, Elkhart hosts Elgin in the conference semis. The Eastern Championship is set for 7PM on Sunday, also at North Side Gym.
The 2nd-seeded Express are the defending IBL Champions. They are looking to win their 2nd IBL Title in just their second ever season.
