  ADRIATIC LEAGUE   


Cedevita switching Americans - by Milan Jovanovic
Cedevita decided to wave their American Thomas Mobley (195-F-81, college: Charleston), and sign another one, on different position, this time a power-forward Ricardo Marsh (201-F-81, college: ODU), stating that their SF position is better filled after the return of Opacak, and PF being a priority.
The club and Mobley agreed on breaking the contract on Wednesday, and the new signed Marsh is already with the team in Slovenia.
Marsh has started the season in Ucranian Donetsk, where he was averaging 10.7 ppg and 3.4 rpg.

Ethias League News - by Peter Buyse
Optima Gent is giving Mike Campbell (197-G/F-75, LIU Brooklyn) a try-out as possible option to replace the injured Kevin Melson. Campbell however has not played since late 2009 and is said to not be in immediate playing shape.
He was been working out with Okapi Aalstar the past months. Mike played at Atomia Brussels with Gent guard Lionel Bosco and even led the Belgian league in scoring that year (06-07) with an everage of 17 ppg. The 35 year old Campbell has played all over the world in such countries as Austria, Cyprus, Venezuela, Italy, Yugoslavia, Portugal, Puerto Rico, France, Israel and finally at the beginning of 2009-2010 season Argentina where he was released in November.

Charleroi guard Gerrit Major (188-G-80) suffered a serious knee injury during the midweek game vs Gent. He requires surgery and will be out for the rest of the season.

Better news for the Antwerp Giants where Roel Moors (188-G-78) is back off the injured list and ready to go against Liege.

Jonathan Kale (Phoenix Hagen) Pregame Thoughts To MBC Game February 14th - by Miles Schmidt-Scheuber
Jonathan Kale (203-F-85, agency: Bradley Sports Management, college: Providence) is a 24 year old Ivorian/American 203cm forward that is playing his rookie season in the BEKO BBL for Phoenix Hagen and is tearing up the league under the boards. He was born in Boston and grew up in Mattapan and went to St Andrews school. He played at Providence University from 2005-2009. In his senior year, he played 33 games averaging 10.1ppg, 6.0rpg, FGP: 57.4%, FT: 56.6%. Before coming to Hagen, he played shortly in Poland for Anwil Wloclawek in pre season. This past summer, he took part in the African Championships in Libya winning the silver and playing 9 games averaging 5.6ppg, 3.6rpg, FGP: 57.1%, 3PT: 30.0%, FT: 56.3%. Jon spoke to eurobasket before the game against MBC on Valentines Day.

Did you watch the Superbowl? How difficult was it watching a game without the New England Patriots?


I did watch the Superbowl and while it was hard to watch it without the Pats competing, it was nice to see the Colts lose

You must have been thrilled that the colts lost?


I was pleasantly surprised because I thought they had it wrapped up

How bitter was the 67-64 loss to The Telekom Baskets Bonn last weekend? This is a game that Phoenix Hagen could of won.


Last weeks game against Bonn was a tough loss, we had them on their heels, but as always in this sport you have to have a short term memory and move on to the next

Michael Jordan came and so did a three game winning streak, but since then the club has lost five games in a row. What have been the biggest problems with the team?


I don't think there is a specific problem as to why we have been on this streak, we just have to keep compete every game, limit turnovers and stay positive

What is your memory of the 85-75 loss at home against MBC?


I just remember that being early in the season, we were a different team back then, so it will be interesting to see how we match up now

What adjustments will Phoenix Hagen have to make for this game?



Well there aren't to many, this is a very balanced team and one guy can hurt just as much as the next so we just have to play tough D and contain

What is your memory of Russian Anatoly Kashirov. He only played 13 minutes with one rebound, but had 12 points hitting just about everything he got inside.

He's a good player and he made the most of all his minutes on the floor

What will be the key to winning in the wolves den?


I think we just have to go in there mentally prepared to carry out our game plan and leave it all out on the floor

Will you be watching the Winter Olympics? What events interest you?


I probably won't watch a lot but I will try to check out the events that are available out here on TV.

What was the last DVD that you saw?



My teammate John Turek put me on to this DVD called Give me the Rock 2, it was really good

Thanks Jon for the quick chat.
Thanks Miles



Michael Haucke makes Stahnsdorf move - by Moritz Korff
2. Bundesliga Pro B outfit RSV Eintracht Stahnsdorf has added some size to its squad by bringing in Michael Haucke (210-C-85). The 24-year-old post player averaged 5.1 points per contest through 15 games for the BSW Sixers in this current season. Haucke made 71.4% of his shots from the floor in the Regionalliga North. Haucke previously played for TuS Jena and BiG Gotha. He will probably make his debut for Stahnsdorf today, when the team takes on Rhoendorf on the road.

Ronald Ross (Artland Dragons) Pregame Thoughts To Brose Baskets Bamberg Game February 14th - by Miles Schmidt-Scheuber
Ronald Ross (188-G-83, college: Texas Tech) is a 26 year old 18 cm guard playing his first season for The Artland Dragons. He is originally from Hobbs New Mexico and played at Texas Tech from 2001-2005. In his senior year, he averaged 17.5ppg, 5.5rpg, 3.0apg, 2.6spg, FGP: 51.9%, 3Pts: 43% and reached the NCA Sweet 16. He started his professional career with Univer Castelletto Ticino (Italy-Lega2) and then moved on to the CBA in 2006-2007 for Butte Daredevils playing 48 games averaging 15.2ppg, 4.2rpg, 3.8apg, Steals-2 (2.4spg), FGP: 49%, 3PT: 29.4%, FT: 74.2% and in 2007 for the Albany Patroons (USBL, starting five) playing 21 games: Score-3 (17.4ppg), 3.0rpg, Assists-4 (4.0apg), Steals-1 (2.5spg), FGP: 47.6%, 3FGP: 41.4%, FT: 84.2%. In 2007-2008, he played for ENBW Ludwigsburg playing 34 games and averaging 14.4ppg, 4.2rpg, 2.3apg, Steals-2 (1.7spg), 2FGP: 52.5%, 3PT: 29.1%, FT: 77.9% reaching the cup final in 2008. Last season, he started in Israel before moving on to the Artland Dragons playing 12 games and averaging 15.8ppg, 3.3rpg, 4.0apg, 2.0spg, FGP: 59.0%, 3PT: 57.1%, FT: 70.0%. He spoke to eurobasket after the 77-56 win against EnBW Ludwigsburg. Ron spoke to eurobasket prior to the game against The Brose Baskets Bamberg.

Did you watch the Superbowl? Did you have any favourite or team that you wanted to win or did you just watch it for fun?

Yeah, I watched the Superbowl. I was going for the Saints. I love to watch the underdogs win.

The Artland Dragons lost a tough game at home against The New Yorker Phantoms Braunschweig 66-60. Artland only scored 17 points in the second half. I guess even teams with a fire power like the Dragons can have an off day?


Yeah, we definitely didn't have that same fire power in the second half. We played too tense and conservative.

The Artland Dragons are in 11th place with a 11-11 record. The team has been so up and down in the last weeks. The team has a deep roster, but apparently is still not there where it wants to be?


I agree, we are definitely not where we want to be as far as our record is concerned. We definitely set higher goals for ourselves as team than 11th place, but we have 12 games left and a lot can change in that time.

The Artland Dragons reached the Top 16 of Eurochallenge. How good are the chances for the team to advance?


I think our chances are good because its still early, but we need to win a game or two on the road.

The next game is against The Brose Baskets Bamberg. What is your memory from the 74-68 loss at home?


I think Bamberg is a good team and not to take anything away from them, but I felt like we gave the game away in that loss. So this time around I hope that we can sustain any kind of the success we have until the end of the game.

The whole Bamberg team is dangerous, but American Brian Roberts had 24 points. Is he a guy that you might have to cover?


He is somebody I could possibly guard, but like you said they are a dangerous team so we are focused on the team as a whole.

Despite the two potent offensive games, could this become a defensive battle?


Yes its possible that it can become a defensive battle, but I hope we have a balanced attack on both ends of the floor.


Will you be watching the Winter Olympics? What events interest you?


No winter Olympics for me my man. I don't even have cable, but thats because I don't really watch TV like that.
Thanks Ron for the quick chat.



Quentin Pryor (Phoenix Hagen) Pregame Thoughts To MBC Game February 14th - by Miles Schmidt-Scheuber
Quentin Pryor (193-G/F-83, agency: Scorers 1st Sportmanagement, college: Morehead St.) is a 25 year old 193cm shooting guard/small forward from Eupora, Mississippi and is playing his second season with Phoenix Hagen. He started his college basketball career at Jackson State, before finishing at Morehead State from 2005-2007. In his senior year, he played 30 games averaging11.4ppg, 4.6rpg, 2.1apg, 1.1spg, FGP: 46.3%, 3Pts: 36.8%, FT: 71.7%. In 2007, he started his professional basketball career in Germany with FC Schalke 04 playing 29 games and averaging 15.1ppg, 4.3rpg, 2.2apg, Steals-1 (2.5spg), FGP: 55.8%, 3PT: 37.4%, FT: 75.2%. Last season for Phoenix Hagen, he played 30 games averaging 14.7ppg, 3.8rpg, 3.0apg, 1.7spg, FGP: 60.5%, 3PT: 30.3%, FT: 75.2%. This season, he is averaging 7,6ppg, 2,9rpg, 1,4apg and has scored in double figures in six games. He spoke to eurobasket about the next game against MBC on February 14th.

You are playing on the road in MBC for Valentines day. For what special person do you want to win this game for?


I want to win this game for my family back at home especially my son.

How big is this game against MBC for Phoenix Hagen considering it is the game of the two PRO A teams from last year?

Its just like every game. Each game is big for us but it is kind of a little rivalry between the teams considering how everything happened last year.

How much did the 67-64 loss at home against The Telekom Baskets Bonn hurt? You guys were so close?


That game stung a lot because we were in control the whole game and just let our inexperience take over in the fourth quarter. A win in that game would have been a big boost for us.

As Michael Jordan came, the club won three games in a row, but since then are riding a five game losing streak. What have been the biggest problems with the team?

I think the biggest problem with us right now is that everyone is trying to do too much. We have phases were we try to make something out of nothing instead of just taking what is there. If we start playing more as team again then everything will be fine.

What are your memories of the 85-75 loss at home against MBC at the start of the season?


I just remember that they controled the whole game from start to finish. They attacked every way possible and we had no answer for them. We made runs and kept the game close, but we just couldn't get over the hump.

What can we await from this game? Two teams running all night long?


I'm pretty sure thats we (the players) would like to do but I think it will come down to who executes their game plan the best.

Phoenix Hagen was severely outrebounded in the first game 44-30. Will it be a key to control the boards and slow down the MBC transition game?


That will be a major key. Anytime you lose the rebounding battle your probably going to lose the game so we want to keep them off the glass and crash it ourselves. Its always a plus if you take away fast break opportunities because that limits easy scores from them. We would much rather make them run their sets.

How much of a challenge is it playing against Wayne Bernard?


Its a tough challenge because they run him off so many screens and he is a good player. He plays hard the whole the game and is the leader of their team

Will you be watching the Winter Olympics? What events will you follow?


.No I wont be watching the Winter Olympics. May catch some highlights here and there on Sportscenter but thats about it. I honestly don't know many of the events except for Skiing, Bobsleding, and Hockey

What is the last DVD that you saw?

I watched Janky Promoters with Ice Cube, Mike Epps, and Young Jeezy.
Thanks for the quick chat Quentin.

Currently he is leading Tuebingen in scoring and had a chat with eurobasket about next game against The Duesseldorf Giants..

Did you watch the Superbowl? Did you have a team that you wanted to win or did you just enjoy the game from a neutral standpoint?

Yea I watched. I wanted the Saints to win and they came through.

Any team can lose to a top team like Alba Berlin. They halted the six game winning streak of The Walter Tigers Tuebingen. How disappointing was the loss? It seemed like Alba Berlin was simply a little better on that day?

It's always disappointing to lose but they aren't the top team in our league right now for no reason. They played extremely well and capitalized on every mistake we made.

You had a real battle with Julius Jenkins as he nipped you in the scoring department 30-28 points. How much fun was going at him in the giant O-2 arena?


It was very fun. He was unbelievable in the first half and I heated up in the second half.

Did you guys talk after the game? Did he tell you anything out of the ordinary to the battle or was it the typical blabla?

No we didn't talk after the game. Just the usual end of the game stuff. He told me way to shoot and good game and I said the same to him.


The next game is against The Duesseldorf Giants who could be the most dangerous 15th placed team ever in the BEKO BBL. I am sure that you guys are aware how dangerous and hungry they are for wins.


Yea they are hungry for wins but we are too so we aren't looking at them any different than we looked at Alba Berlin.

What is your memory from the 65-55 win in Duesseldorf earlier in the season?


I don't really remember much. I just remember it being our first road win of the season.

Dueseldorf seemed not to get a handle on the Tuebingen defense. However if they start having a shooting clinic, I am sure that you will make adjustments on defense?



Yea you have to make adjustments if a team starts to tear up your defense. A key to winning any game is the ability to make adjustments through out the game.

What is your memory of Bobby Walker? He poured in 19 points? How do you stop him?


I just remember him hitting a lot of tough shots. He had 19 but he really worked for them. We just have to guard him and make the game tough for him.

What will be the key to winning?


The key to winning will be following our game plan and being to stingy on defense period. Not just on one person.

Will you be watching the Winter Olympics? What events interest you?


No I don't really watch the Winter Olympics.
Thanks Michael for the chat!

  HUNGARY   


Market news - by Tamas Deri
Chad Timberlake (193-G-84, college: Fairleigh Dickinson) signed a 10days tryout-contract with ZTE KK and might stay with the team after that period until the end of the season. The american guard arrived already two weeks ago to Hungary and spent some days with ASE, but coach Dzunic decided to sign Lagrange. He left the team and moved to Debrecen, where the management of DEKE wanted to sign him but could not agree. The management of ZTE KK was looking for a replacement player for injured Calvin Watson and invited him for a tryout. Timberlake is playing his first game tonight in Szombathely.

Imre Horvath got the new head coach of ASE. He started this season with Szolnok but got cut after only 8 games in November 2009. He just was the first time on the bench of his new team today in Kormend.

Istvan Nemeth (190-G-79, agency: Laszlo Vinko Services) signed with his hometeam MJUS-Fortress Kormend for the rest of the season and other two seasons with step-out options. The hungarian guard is a very experienced player, spent the last couple of seasons with clubs like Prokom Sopot, Vojvodina and AEK Athens. He spent the last season with AEK in Greece and averaged 10.8ppg, 2.0rpg, 1.3apg, FGP: 62.1%, 3PT: 44.9%, FT: 75.0% in 25 games before leaving the club because of financial reasons. In November 2009 he agreed with Carife Ferrara in Italy, but had to leave the club after only one week because of his back injury. He is still on rehab and hopes to be able to help his new team in the playoffs!

We are pleased with the progress the Nuggets have made over the last five years. George has played a pivotal role in our success. His extension is well-deserved, Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke said. George and our entire organization remain focused on one goal: Bringing an NBA championship to Denver.

Now in his 22nd season as an NBA head coach, Karl has taken his teams to the playoffs 18 times, and he has not had a losing season since 1987-88. His 260 victories with the Nuggets rank second in franchise history (Doug Moe, 432), while his .618 winning percentage is unmatched.

Ive always said Denver is the only place I want to coach, Karl said. Mr. Kroenkes leadership and his commitment to my staff, players and Nuggets fans are second to none. I have a great deal of respect for Stan, personally and professionally. I look forward to working with him as we pursue our common goal of winning an NBA title.

Overall, Karl has as a career regular-season record of 968-660 with Cleveland, Golden State, Seattle, Milwaukee and Denver. His victories rank seventh in NBA history.

Bring the old Rick Pitino back! - by Carl Berman
The book was titled Born To Coach, but as you watch Rick Pitino , the subject of that book, prowl the sidelines for Louisville, you have to wonder how much hes enjoying it this year. In all fairness to the future Hall of Famer, the Cardinals sent Terrance Williams and Earl Clark into the first round of the NBA draft last year but Pitino also did some self-damage this summer, getting exposed (sorry) in an extramarital affair several years ago that is now being dragged through the courts. But last night against St. John's at Madison Square Garden, he wasn't the same fiery, explosive sideline maestro who's taken three teams to the Final Four and won it all for Kentucky. Maybe hes resigned to the fact that this team is not going to a regional final as last years team did, and maybe its a bump in the road before another top recruiting class helps fill the Cards glittering new arena. But for those of us who've watched him over the last two decades work miracle runs at Providence, steal victories and make skilled opponents look foolish with that vaunted press, something was missing last night. It couldve been the atmosphere. Pitino's teams are used to playing in raucous, sold out venues, home and away, and last nights crowd of under 6,000 probably made it seem like they were playing outdoors.

New Yorkers have always had a soft spot for Pitino, after all, hes one of us. He grew up not far from the Garden, he played his high school ball on Long Island and wherever hes coached, hes come back to pluck the areas best prep players for his school. And, oh yes, he was the head coach of the New York Knicks for two seasons and think about this, Knicks fans, in his second year, the Knicks won 52 games.

So, come on, Coach, speaking for the many New Yorkers who've watched you over the years whether you were with us (Knicks) or against us (everywhere else), we want the old Rick Pitino back on Louisville's bench, screaming for white (full court pressure), stomping his feet, yelling at the officials and causing mayhem for opponents with the press and three point barrage. Last night, there was only one sequence of three point field goal-opponent turnover-three point field goal, but it came with two minutes left and the game was out of reach. We appreciate the all out, frenetic pace you preach, if you've ever played the game, that's how you WANT to play. So get some players and bring that back to the Garden. When were not rooting for St. John's, we're rooting for you.

PBA Semifinals: Round 2 review - by Eurobasket News
Purefoods - San Miguel 103-84
Purefoods Tender Juicy came out strong in Game 2, whipping San Miguel Beer, 103-84, to prune down their semifinal series to a best-of-5 affair in the KFC-PBA Philippine Cup Friday night at the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay City. Rafi Reavis (203-C-77, college: Coppin St.) and Nino Canaleta stepped up a big offensive for the Giants to fill the void left by Kerby Raymundo (199-C-81) who was ejected late in the second period. The win ties their best-of-7 semifinal series to 1-all. Reavis finished with a game-high 20 points, his best scoring output since 2004 Fiesta Cup while playing for Coca-Cola. He also grabbed 12 rebounds and swatted 4 attempts. Canaleta added 17 points off the bench while James Yap also had 17 markers to help Purefoods recover from an 83-99 defeat in Game 1. 'We wanted to come out with the same energy in Game 1 but the problem was we did not have fresh legs,' said Giants head coach Ryan Gregorio who also got 15 points from Roger Yap. 'Tonight, we showed tremendous effort, tremendous energy and defended the way we defended the other teams in the elimination round,' he added. Purefoods was in full command of the game even though the Beermen made attempts to get back in the match but Canaleta provided the needed baskets to thwart the uprising of San Miguel in the second half. Canaleta's triple gave the Giants a commanding 73-52 lead but SMB closed out the third period with 7 straight points to slice the lead to 59-73 entering the fourth period. But Purefoods responded with an 8-1 surge to push the lead back to 81-60 with 8:32 remaining. The Beermen made another run, this time a 10-0 blast to move even closer at 70-81, 7:05 left in the game. Canaleta and Yap, former UE teammates in the UAAP, joined forces in the decisive 12-1 run capped by the latter's three-pointer to put the game out of reach, 93-71 with 3:25 remaining. 'No excuses. We came out flat. We did not have the energy and we were complacent,' said Beermen mentor Siot Tanquingcen, who absorbed their worst loss in the semis since the 100-129 defeat at the hands of Talk N Text in Game 1 of the same tournament last season. 'Good part of it, both teams are back to zero. For sure, the intensity gonna pick up in Game 3,' he added. Danny Seigle (198-F/G-76, college: Wagner) paced San Miguel with 16 points while Arwind Santos and Dondon Hontiveros each had 13 markers for the Beermen. Raymundo was thrown out of the game at 4:11 mark of the second period for two technical fouls, the last for making a contact with a game official. - Courtesy of www.abs-cbnnews.com

Alaska - Ginebra 90-82
Alaska weathered Barangay Ginebra's fourth-quarter surge and hacked out a 90-82 win in Game 2 to erect a 2-0 lead in their own best-of-7 semifinal series. Willie Miller (180-G-77) bounced back from a 4-point performance in the series opener with 18 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists as the Aces move to two wins away of returning to the All-Filipino finals. Sonny Thoss added 17 points while Tony dela Cruz had a huge game for coach Tim Cone with 14 points and 16 rebounds. 'Guys are unselfish and that's really key for us right now,' said Cone, who also drew 13 markers from Joe Devance. 'But the bottom line is, Ginebra has been here before. We've been here before. We had a 2-0 lead against Talk N Text in the last finals and we lost it. Ginebra was down 0-2 against TNT in the last series and they won it,' he added. After being down by as much as 13 at the start of the fourth, the Kings threatened at 86-82 when Thoss hit a difficult lay up that was enough to shut down the rally. Enrico Villanueva (197-C-80) led the Kings with 17 points, 11 rebounds and 4 steals while Sunday Salvacion chipped in 14. JC Intal had another disappointing performance as he was limited to just 2 points and was 0-of-7 from the field. - Courtesy of www.abs-cbnnews.com

Preview of round 21 - by Sebastian Umbrich
Round 21 of the Romanian Divizia A is figuring out some interesting matches.
The round started on Friday, with two matches, one of them offering a big surprise.
In the rounds prologue, Energia Rovinari rolled over SCM U Craiova, score 91-69. Kibwe Trim (208-F/C-84, college: Sacred Heart) scored 24 points & 10 rebounds for the victors while Andrei Capusan (201-F-83, agency: Court Side, college: Lafayette) added 19 points and 9 rebounds. From the losing side, Dragovic scored 19 points. In conclusion, Rovinari took revenge for the loss in the first match between these two teams.
The second match offered a surprise: CSU Sibiu lost on home ground against Dinamo Bucharest, score 81-86. From the winning side, Claudiu Fometescu (188-G-73) and Stojadin Markovic (200-F-69) scored 49 points together, while Jason Smith and Earl Brown scored 45 points for the losers. After this match, Sibiu still finds itself on the 4th position (15-6 record), while Dinamo moves on rank no. 12.
Match no. 3 will be a relative easy match for 3rd ranked Gaz Metan Medias, which will go to Oradea, facing one of the most surprising teams this championship.

USBA to Host National Basketball Player Combine at Agnes Scott College on March 6, 2010 - by USBA Media

Atlanta, Ga. (February 13, 2010)---The United States Basketball Association (USBA) will host its first invitation-only national basketball player combine as part of the process for filling its 2010 inaugural basketball team rosters. 'The combine is scheduled to be held at the Woodruff Physical Activity Building on the campus of Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia,' said USBA Vice President of Basketball Operation Kenneth Green. The combine will be held on Saturday, March 6, 2010. We invite all qualified professional players to participate, we have already heard from agents who represent players from other countries as well as here in the United States, said Green. The combine will be open to all qualified basketball players. The registration period has been changed to February 18, 2010 thru March 3, 2010. Players are required to pre-register on the league website, beginning February 18, 2010 and no one will be accepted after the deadline.

Registration forms can be mailed to the league office. All applications should be postmarked before March 3, 2010. Forms will be available from the leagues website.
The combine was originally to be held at Oglethorpe University, according to league sources the change was made to better accommodate participants. Oglethorpe is a fine university and they have great facilities, however it is in a predominately residential area and we need to make hotels available to the combine participants.


'We are working tirelessly in our pursuit to find the best players available for all USBA teams; this will enable us to provide our fans the very best minor league professional basketball players from day one,' said USBA President and C.E.O., Duane Allen Jenkins . This national search for players and our combine is a truly special and unique opportunity for all of our coaches to evaluate basketball players to fit their style of play in one place and at one time,' continued Jenkins.

Invited players will participate in scrimmage games and will be evaluated by the league coaching staff and invited scouts. USBA coaching staff will then select the players to try out for their local team. USBA individual team tryouts are scheduled for March 13, 2010 and March 20, 2010. According to the league, players will be charged a fee of $75.00 to participate in the combine. The league will waive the all fees for team individual tryouts for the players who participate in the combine. Basketball players will need to have a minimum of two years experience on the collegiate level to be invited to both the combine and the individual team tryouts.

Players participating in the combine will receive a tee shirt, lunch from Subway and a video taped disc of the days events. Deer Park will provide bottled water to the players and coaches.

Trainers and paramedics will be on hand to assist participants.

'The basketball games during combine will be officiated by league referees. We have a prime opportunity to expose these players to the crews that will officiate the USBA games,' said USBA Supervisor of Officials, Simmie Lavender. The minimum experience of my officials is the NCAA division two level; we have quite a few people that referee in the NCAA division one and currently registered with the D-League.' The USBA uses NBA rules and regulations.

The USBA has eighteen teams in three divisions. The teams are spread out over ten southern states and the District of Columbia. Please refer to the league website at www.usbaball.com. Combine signup will begin February 18, 2010 and end March 3, 2010. Complete instruction on player registration, confirmed site location and hotel reservation information will be made available on the league website on February 18, 2010. According to the league, the registration period was changed to allow more time for college players whose teams may not be invited to the NCAA tournament. The USBA utilizes medium to small college and university gymnasiums for the home location of their teams. All USBA coaches will be on hand to evaluate players. Coaches will have the option to sign players to an agreement or invited them to an additional tryout with their local team.

Basketball player compensation package includes; $350.00 per week, $25.00 sponsor paid appearances, 25% commission on sponsorship sales, a daily meal at Golden Coral Buffet Restaurant, workman compensation and housing, when needed. Each team plays a thirty game schedule, fifteen home games and fifteen games away.
