NEW ERA BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES THE ADDITION OF THE GARLAND HOYAS
Houston Tx October 11

President of Basketball Operations Kevin Williams, and League Commissioner David Swisher have announced the addition of the Garland Hoyas. Garland, a suburb of Dallas Texas, is the last addition to the southwest region for the NEBA League. Joining the likes of Houston, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, and Lafayette Louisiana , President Williams is looking to build a divisional rivalry similar to the NBA's. The Garland Hoyas are owned by Paul Parker, a current active duty officer in the army. Parker sat the bench in high school but found himself walking on to a local community college where he became a star. After finding out that he needed his kidney removed, Paul decided to focus on coaching basketball instead of playing. The Garland Hoyas are a welcomed addition to the NEBA League and are loaded with talent that includes two former division 1 basketball players in their backcourt. When asked what promoted Parker to join up with the NEBA movement Parker stated 'The professionalism and structure of the NEBA League is the most appealing thing to me not to mention that Kevin Williams is my mentor'. 'Joining up with the NEBA League is truly the best way that I can develop my players and get them to the next level'.
The Garland Hoyas first game of the season will be November 13th versus the Memphis Lions which will tip off the start of the NEBA Season.The mission of the NEBA League is to teach, develop, and expose basketball players to the NBA, NBDL, and International Scouts , while providing the community an exciting brand of basketball. New Era, Ea Sports, BOP TV, 20/20 Apparel,Hoop Culture, and Ball 4 Life have all been named official sponsors for the NEBA League. A Partnership with 20/20 apparel will make the NEBA League the only minor league basketball association that will have players with their own shoes.Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
