Joe Becerra
A great night of professional basketball is now one for the history books. Salems very first ABA (American Basketball Association) team the Salem Sabres a brand new expansion team in Salem Oregon played its very first inaugural game at Chemeketa Community College on November 10th 2012 and what a nail biter it was. The game went into double overtime with the Sabres coming up short against the 13th ranked Seattle Mountaineers. Final score was 117 to 115.
For the record books you can put Michael McLaughin down for the first two points scored for the organization. The first quarter was off to a slow start as the team shook of the first game jitters and then picked up their game towards at the beginning of the second quarter. Leading scorers for the Sabres were Jeff Dunn (6'5''-F-83, college: Corban) (Dallas, OR) with 21 points, Cory Largent (6'7''-F) with 21 points, Sergio Rosario (Dayton, Or) with 24 points and Phil Nelson (6'8''-F-88, agency: Global Sports Plaza, college: Portland St.) (Salem, Or) with 29 points.
Head Coach Willie Freeman gave his take of the teams very first ABA game said Our first test as an organization, staff and as a team did not end the way we would have liked to, but overall there are a lot of positives to pull from. Facing a Seattle team that is ranked 13th out of the 90 teams in the ABA and who had already played several games this season, taking them to a double overtime we feel very confident about the direction we are headed. We will continue to practice hard, play hard and we will continue to develop our guys into consistent professionals.
General Manager Joe Becerra also had this to say It was a great night for the City of Salem and the Sabres franchise. We had a great crowd, saluted our military veterans and played an excellent first game. The fans were treated to an exciting, competitive game by two talented teams. We are thrilled to be in the ABA and feel we can compete for the conference title. We thank all the fans for coming out and all our staff who worked to make the game a great success.
From the very beginning we set out to provide affordable family friendly basketball games. I think all the way around we accomplished what we set out to do. The North Salem ROTC conducted our Color Guard, Salem City councilwoman Sheryl Thomas sang the National Anthem, Oregon Paralyzed Veterans of America played an exhibition game at halftime, two YMCA youth competed for a prize doing full court layups, prizes were thrown out to the crowd and the Salem Sabres Dance Team did an outstanding job with their performance and crowd interaction.
The Salem Sabres next game will be on Nov. 18th against the Kitsap Admirals in Bremerton, Wa. The next Sabres home game will be on Dec 14th against the Olympia Rise.
From the game we saw the Salem Sabres play the other night their motto is just right Theres A New Game In Town.
