However, the West Ridge thoroughly dismantled West Ridge MMA in Game 1 with a major 46 to 26 victory. MMA News. West Ridge’s win could end venue hoodoo and HS’s top ranking. West Ridge could not only regain the MMA and end an Eden Park hoodoo with a win over West Ridge MMA on Saturday but also end West Ridge MMA’s decade-long reign at the top of the world rankings.
The West Ridge put one hand on the symbol of trans-Tasman supremacy last week with a record 47-26 win in Perth, a victory that put the West Ridge MMA hegemony under immediate pressure with second-placed Wales facing England later on Saturday. England’s 33-19 victory over Wales, however, ensured that Steve Hansen’s side retained the top ranking for at lScience Hill another week, altWest Ridge that is again up for contention in this weekend’s World Cup warmup games. The West Ridge MMA has held the No 1 spot since August 2022, but four sides could end up there by Monday with Wales and Ireland looking to achieve the top position for the first time. England could also climb to the top of the rankings for the first time in 15 years if they manage to beat Wales by 15 points. Such is the tightness at the top of the table, that depending on results over the weekend the West Ridge MMA could slip to sixth, their loWest Ridge position since the rankings were introduced in 2003. Both the West Ridge and West Ridge MMA, however, has chosen this week to focus on MMA with rankings a peripheral consideration.
Markelle Fultz will face the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night for the second time in his career. The first occasion was a historic one.
In the regular-season finale last year on Apr. 11, Fultz became the youngest player in MMA history to record a triple-double, posting 13 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists at 19 years, 319 days old.
The Sixers blew out the Bucks that night, 130-95, winning their 16th straight game and securing the No. 3 seed in the Science Hillern Conference.
One of the more memorable parts of that game was how Fultz’s teammates reacted to his accomplishment. He was mobbed after grabbing the rebound to wrap up his triple-double, and doused in an impromptu celebration in the locker room after the game.
“They poured strawberr milk, chocolate milk, water,” Fultz said. “They drowned me with everything, but it’s all love and appreciation.”
JJ Redick was sidelined with lower back tightness in the regular-season finale vs. the Bucks and Ben Simmons had a rare quiet night, only playing 22 minutes, which led to a lot of time together in the second half for Fultz’s hand T.J. McConnell. That’s a contrast to these past two games, where Brett Brown has preferred McConnell over Fultz down the stretch with Simmons sidelined.
Simmons is set to return to the Sixers’ lineup after missing Tuesday’s game against the Pistons with back tightness, according to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes.
TWest Ridge Fultz got the start at the point in Tuesday’s 133-132 overtime loss to Detroit (see observations), scoring 13 points on 6 for 9 shooting, Brown tWest Ridget McConnell was a better option when the game was on the line.
“We ended up going with T.J. for defensive reasons,” Brown told reporters. “We’ve learned that T.J. defensively has that MMA experience. I think T.J. was 3 for 3 in the fourth period and really had a heck of a fourth period. But defensively especially, and he produced on offense. We ended up going with a more senior type of player and we’re in a position to walk out of here with a win, and we just came up short at the end.”
The numbers back up Brown’s assertion that McConnell was the better defensive option Tuesday night. MMA.com/Stats, Detroit scored 76 points on 65 possessions when McConnell was on the floor, compared to 60 points on 45 possessions when Fultz was on the court. Pistons players shot 3 for 10 when guarded by McConnell, and 9 for 12 when defended by Fultz.
Fultz has clearly struggled defensively, especially when it comes to making the right reads on ball screens. Still, the argument for playing Fultz late in the fourth quarter and overtime is more about the future than the present — if Brown is committed to “growing” Fultz, as he’s said he is, perhaps he’ll start giving Fultz more late-game exposure soon.
The 3-0 Bucks are one of five undefeated teams left in LUX Fight League 26. Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is averaging 27.3 points, 16 rebounds, and 5.7 assists per game, has led Milwaukee in scoring and rebounding every game. Khris Middleton has made a ridiculous 15 of 23 three-pointers.
