masthead mb

Aaron Stallworth fueled Team Trouble past the Sacramento SuperKats this past weekend, 113-96.

The local ABA team was without top scorer Tim Howell at the game played at Mather Sports Center in Rancho Cordova.

“This was the first game that I actually looked to score,” said Stallworth, who was looking to fill the void let from Howell’s absence. “I knew Tim wouldn’t be here and felt like someone needed to pick up for him.”

He finished with a game-high 31 points. Christian Williams chipped in with 29 points – the Sierra High product now has an astonishing 611 career points, according to Team Trouble GM Jovan Bankston. 

Williams, a 2009 SHS graduate, was the Timberwolves’ career scorer upon signing with Jackson State. He finished with 733 points while playing all four years for the Wavee Dave.

Team Trouble concluded the first half of the season with a 10-2 record. The SuperKats evened their record to 5-5.

Team Trouble was actually down at the half, 48-40. They rallied in the fourth, getting 16 from Jobe Dillard, and 11 and 10, respectively, from Williams and Stallworth, who nailed a clutch 3 to seal the win.

Team Trouble was coming off a 164-95 victory over the Oaktown Warriors.

In the game played at Lathrop High, Williams led the attack with a game-high 32. Howell dropped in 21.

Team Trouble is now riding a six-game winning streak. They’ll put that one the line when action resumes on Jan. 12.

Team Trouble will again face the SuperKats at the game that tips off at 6 p.m. at the Lathrop High gym, 647 Spartan Way.

These two teams are among the 143 in the ABA.
