The Skyforce added to their 5 game winning streak this past Friday night against the Delaware 87ers (4-4) with a score of 115-99. This also marks the 5th straight win for the Force by 10+ points.

The defeat of the 87ers was accomplished with help from Rodney McGruder and Tre Kelley each putting up 20 points. Greg Whittington, who led the Force to a victory with 28 points and 7 rebounds, has scored in double digits in four of six contests this season and is shooting 51.9 percent from the field.

The Skyforce are scheduled to play the Delaware 87ers again Saturday, December 5 in the Pentagon at 7:00 before heading on the road to Texas.
