Indianapolis, Indiana March 21, 2017: The ABA has announced Marsha Blount as its new CEO for the WABA. Marsha is a product of Mount Vernon High School, where she played basketball making history as the first undefeated team and being awarded State Championship. After a successful basketball career at Queens College, Marsha went on to coach several semi-pro women's teams. Marsha has an extensive business background, that includes ownership of several businesses. In 2005, she purchased the NJ territory of the ABA, and founded the Jersey Express (Newark Express). Mount Vernon High School announced the retirement of her #11 basketball jersey in mid-2006. Today the Jersey Express Team is the oldest in the league. She later went on and founded the WABA Jersey Expressions in 2013.Throughtout her career with ABA she has held several titles such as Chairwoman of the ABA Northeast Division and Member of the ABA Executive Committee. 'With the upcoming inaugural season of the WABA, I'm proud to be able to help provide additional opportunities for women to continue their playing careers, and receive the exposure needed to be seen, potentially by the WNBA, overseas scouts, agents and representatives...we are a League of Opportunity'. Our goal is to provide opportunities for those business minded professionals, who've had thoughts and dreams of owning their own professional sports team. Being able to offer an affordable opportunity, is key to our success, in providing opportunities for ownership. We're proud to be the sister league of the historic ABA, which has a longstanding history of inclusion. We're still taking market reservations, for new teams, with a deadline of April 30th. The season begins August 5th, 2017, and will run thru October, culminating in crowning an inaugural WABA champion. Be a part of history, it's easy, and affordable.
