The Blaze defeated the Gymrats 149-86 at the Community First Champion Center in Appleton, WI. Blaze was one of 24 stops the Gymrats will take while playing in their 24-game North American tour. The Gymrats are the ABA's only international team and they play their entire 24-game season in North America.
"Hosting the Gymrats was a great experience for organization," stated Ally Gwidt, General Manager of Wisconsin Blaze Pro.

I am hoping we can develop on that relationship and continue growing with their organization in the future."
