Toros Hold Early NBA D-League Lead

If you haven't yet attended an Austin Toros game this season, then you need to seriously reconsider your priorities. Even with losing star players (and fan favorites) Lance Thomas and "Squeaky" Carldell Johnson to the NBA's New Orleans Hornets, the Toros lay claim to the league-best record of 7-3. They face a tough challenge with the 7-5 Springfield Armor coming to town. Justin Dentmon (pictured) leads the team with 22.4 points per game, and forward Eric Dawson picked up a double-double (18 points, 13 boards) in the Toros win over the Fort Wayne Mad Ants Dec. 23. Thirsty Thursday at the CPC features $3 draft beers, while Trifecta Friday takes it up a notch with $3 drafts and $2 sodas and $1 hot dogs.

Vs. Springfield: Thu., Dec. 29, 1pm; Fri., Dec. 30, 7:30pm; Thu., Jan. 5, 7:30pm. Cedar Park Center, 2100 Avenue of the Stars, Cedar Park, 512/600-5000. $8-99 plus fees. www.austintoros.com.
