Its a game that has been years in the making! Its a battle of New York & New Jersey! Its potentially the best that Minor League Basketball has to offer!
The Jersey Express of the American Basketball Association have agreed to host the New York Wizards of the Eastern Basketball Alliance in an interleague battle at Centenary Colleges beautiful John M. Reeves Student Recreation Center in Hackettstown NJ on Saturday January 26th at 7 PM.
What makes this game special? Many reasons !
Perhaps most important is that these two teams are real professional minor league basketball teams. They practice, play at quality facilities, have players European Scouts and Coaches have avid interest in, and they win!
"Marsha Blount and I have been talking for about 3 years now in terms of attempting to arrange a game" Stated Wizards head Coach Greg Cerillo Sr "I respect her and her organization so much. When we finally had dates that aligned I think we both felt a bit of excitement".
Truly these two teams are exactly what minor league basketball is all about. Both teams are loaded with former college talent and many former Division I players! No mens league superstars or YouTube sensations here! These teams can flat out ball! In 4 years of play in the EBA the Wizards have won 2 Division Titles and made 2 Final Four appearances. The Wizards have also had 9 players ink paid contracts or overseas deals in the past 14 months.
The Express are a perianal powerhouse in the ABA and currently lead the Northeast Division with a 2-1 record and a 120 PPG average. The Express scoring is distributed among 7 players averaging double digits! Express leading scorers include Bill McDonough (6'7''-F, college: Richard Stockton) at 19 PPG and Devon Young (6'3''-G/F-89, agency: BBEH Cokrlija, college: Felician) at 18 PPG.
The Wizards have a stifling defense which has held their two opponents to an 89 PPG average while averaging 130 PPG on the offensive end for a +41 point winning margin per contest.
"All the averages and stats are out the window at this point" continued Cerillo "We will rely on what has always made us successful. We are going to get the ball in the hand of our experienced players and Captains Aubin Scott (6'2''-G-83, college: LIU Brooklyn), Eric Ferguson and Brandon Lawley, and have them lead us."
The Wizards are led in scoring by Khalil McDonald (6'6''-F, college: Queens, NY) averaging 37 PPG, Brandon Lawley (6'7''-F/C-85, college: Mansfield, PA)'s 17 rebounds per game, and center Anthony Cox (6'9''-C-83, college: Farmingdale St.) averaging 15 PPG and 13 RPG. The Wizards also get exceptional shooting from Shavar Richardson (6'3''-G-89, college: Florida Atlantic) at 21 PPG and added punch from SaiQuon Stone (6'6''-G/F-87, college: S.Mississippi) s 12.5 PPG and 4.5 steals per game.
If that is not enough Trinity Fields (6'2''-G) adds 8 PPG and 5 APG to go with 2 time EBA MVP Aubin Scotts14 PPG and 9 APG!
The Wizards can also count on Rob Hampton (6'4''-G/F-88, college: Norfolk St.) and Tim Zephyr (6'8''-F-87, college: Norfolk St.) to produce since being added to the roster after returning home from playing in Chile
