PBA Playoffs Round Of 24 Concludes Tonight

PORTLAND, Maine – Bayside Bowl was intense for the first Round of 24 show last week and that momentum carries forward when the Round of 24 concludes with broadcasts on FS1 and FloBowling tonight.

The show airs at 8 p.m. Eastern and will be broadcast for U.S. audiences on FS1 while international fans can watch on FloBowling.

Here are the four matchups for tonight’s PBA Playoffs:

No. 15 Wes Malott vs. No. 18 Josh Blanchard

Malott had a strong start to the season, placing in the Top 20 in seven of the first eight events, but has struggled a bit since. After finishing a season-best third at the PBA Indianapolis Open, Malott missed the cut in Jonesboro, missed three of the four cuts at the World Series of Bowling and finished 191st at the USBC Masters. He’ll look to rebound against Blanchard.

Blanchard has made one championship-round appearance this season, finishing fourth at the PBA Tournament of Champions. He just missed another show, finishing sixth in Indianapolis. He’s coming off a decent showing at the PBA World Championship (18th) and the USBC Masters (36th).

The winner will take on No. 2 Jakob Butturff in the next round.

No. 10 Marshall Kent vs. No. 23 Jesper Svensson

It’s been a frustrating season so far for Kent, who has been so close to breaking through yet so far. He had a suburb stretch in February, finishing third at the TOC, ninth at the Players Championship, eighth in Indianapolis and seventh in Jonesboro. He had a tough WSOB but followed it up with a 10th-place finish at the USBC Masters.

The urethane flame thrower Svensson had a pretty stellar start to the season, finishing fourth at the PBA Hall of Fame Classic, second at the PBA Oklahoma Open and sixth at the Mark Roth-Marshall Holman PBA Doubles Championship. Since then it’s been an incredible struggle with just one cash since the Oklahoma events.

The winner will take on No. 7 Bill O’Neill in the next round.

No. 14 Dom Barrett vs. No. 19 Brad Miller

It’s been sort of an up-and-down season so far for Barrett, who made the show at the Oklahoma Open and finished fourth but hasn’t made a stepladder since. He is coming off one of his strongest performances of the season at the USBC Masters, where he finished eighth and tossed a 300 game in match play.

Miller is having a solid season with seven Top 25 finishes, including 15th at Players and 11th at the Masters. He also finished second with his buddy Kyle Sherman at the PBA Doubles Championship. A win against Barrett would only increase his confidence.

The winner will take on No. 3 Norm Duke in the next round.

No. 11 Kyle Sherman vs. No. 22 DJ Archer

Without question, Sherman is having his best season as a professional bowler and is coming off major hip surgery in August. He has cashed in 10 out of 11 events this season, the best on the PBA Tour. So far this season, he has eight finishes among the top 20.

Outside of a fourth-place finish at the Players Championship and a ninth-place finish to open the season at the Hall of Fame Classic, it’s been a bit hit and miss for Archer. He enters the PBA Playoffs coming off a 46th-place finish at the USBC Masters.

The winner will take on No. 6 Sean Rash in the next round.
