Atlanta, Ga., U.S.A.(Jan 29, 2009)----A brand new spring basketball league has raised it's regal head in the southeast United States. The United States Basketball Association (USBA) announced plans for team tryouts for it's 2009 basketball season.' We're not looking for the next high flying Michael Jordan nor do we require the keen eye of a Larry Bird, however we are looking for young men who know how to play and most importantly who are coachable. We'll look to recruit players who have the right attitude and great personal pride' said USBA Vice President of Basketball Operation Ken Green. Green is from Atlanta and played his college hoops at Pan American University. He was selected in the first round by the Denver Nuggets in the 1981 NBA draft. ' Our teams will be largely comprised of players who are attempting to rise to the D-league or they are trying to secure a position on an International team. With a spring schedule, our tryouts could be overrun with quality players, who want to start or continue their careers' said Mr. Green.

The United States Basketball Association is a men's minor division professional basketball league. The league began operations in July 2007 with twelve teams split into two divisions. The Atlantic houses the Jacksonville Admirals, the Savannah Seahawks, the Richmond Colonials, the Charlotte Blue Wave, the Augusta Raging River and the Charleston Stars, the second division is called the Appalachian, it consist of the Nashville Thunder, the Birmingham Crusaders, the Montgomery Generals, the Chattanooga Royal, the Atlanta Platinum and the West Virginia Capitals. Each team will play a thirty game schedule, fifteen games on the road and fifteen at home. The regular season begins in early April and ends in late June. The Championship playoffs are held in Atlanta, Georgia.

The tryouts will be held in each team city. Try out dates are March 7, 14 and 21, 2009. Each player will get three opportunities to exhibit their stuff. According to the league a players will be permitted to attend each tryout. The Try out will cost $75.00 for all dates. ' You know basketball, one day you score 40 points, grab 19 rebounds and sent 5 shots into the stands, the next day you own a cement factory and you're delivering bricks' chuckled Coach Green. 'For one fee our prospects can attend all three camps or go to three different cities and try out for different teams for one fee. The close proximity of our team locations will make this new approach possible' Green explained. 'I will say this, the players better be in shape, we're expecting a good turnout in all our cities'. Free agent camp locations and time schedule will be posted on February 15, 2009. For more information on the league visit www.usbaball.com. or call the league at (678) 615-3067.
