A night after nearly stealing a win against Fargo and being named third star, Wilcox (pictured) stood on his head for most of the Saturday game and came away with a win and first star honors. The future Minnesota Golden Gopher reportedly put on a show for the Storm. TC is now two points behind Des Moines for the final playoff spot in the West, though the Bucs have two games in hand. The Storm have crawled out of the cellar to make a run at the playoffs.
