FORT WAYNE, Ind. — The Fort Wayne Vision stormed back from an 18-point halftime deficit and ended the Cedar Valley CourtKings’ season 92-89 Saturday night in the semifinals of the Midwest Basketball League tournament.

The two-time MBL champion CourtKings (16-3) led 34-15 after the opening quarter and 56-38 at halftime before the East Division champions turned the game around.

Fort Wayne (15-2) closed within 67-62 by the end of the third quarter. Cedar Valley still led by five points at 81-76 late, but the Vision finally grabbed the lead at 90-89 and hung on for the win.
