UBA Free Agency: Jay Bowdy Ready for Big Season After Treatment For Knee Injury - Sep 5, 2012

Jay Bowdy

David Walls
September 6, 2012

So far, one of the most surprising moves of the off season for the new UBA franchise (North Texas Fresh) when it comes to free agency has been their reports of drafting ABA All-Star Jay Bowdy (6'6''-F-83, college: W.Georgia). Despite a long history of knee injuries and a recommendation from a team orthopedist that he never play again, he has decided to make a comeback in the game and it's the Fresh will be looking to draft him in the 2012 UBA draft.

According to Bowdy's agent, he has been working hard to make sure that he makes an impact in his first full season in the UBA after a couple of procedures to get his knee ready for playing:

Adding in Bowdy, if he can stay healthy, is a big coup for any Western Conference team in the UBA. Bowdy played briefly in the UBA before going down with a knee injury. He only played in 6 games averaging over 16 points per game. Most likely he will be drafted by the North Texas Fresh due to his strong roots in Fort Worth.

At the peak of his career, Jay Bowdy was one of the NJCAA premier small forwards, a rare blend of scoring, athleticism and all-around cerebral play. The NJCAA standout signed with West Georgia but was forced into early retirement just when he announced that his knees had degenerated to the point where they lacked cartilage between the bones (In his junior season). It was a harsh blow to West Georgia and to Bowdy, who at 22 years old was supposed to be entering his basketball prime.

After a year off Bowdy enter the NBA Dleague draft where he made the final cut for the Austin Toros. He would later join the West Texas Whirlwinds of the ABA. He was later named an All-Star after a breakout season with an average of 20.3ppg. Usbasket.com honored Bowdy with 1st Team All-Rookie and All-ABA. Things looked to be back on track for his career after his first full season since the ACL injury.

In the Fall of 2010 Bowdy joined the UBA with high hopes of making it to the next level due to the great success rate of UBA talent going overseas. Longtime friend and former teammate Jermaine Barnes (6'5''-G/F-82, agency: Gamble Sports Management, college: Point, GA) was entering into his 2nd season in the UBA after winning his first MVP award. Barnes introduced Bowdy to the league and looked for a future with GIE.

"Me and Jay had grown a great relationship and I was very excited to see him come over to the UBA", said Barnes. I would always attend his ABA game and always dreamed of us teaming up again someday.

Barnes and Bowdys dreams came true as the two joined forces with the GIE Maile Matrix (Disciples). The two were looked a pound to be the next Jordan and Pippen of the UBA; but these dream were cut short after Bowdy went down with yet another knee injury.

Now the 2012 UBA Rookie has fully committed himself to a comeback. "I wouldn't be going back out there if I wasn't ready to play at a high level," Bowdy said to his hometown radio station Fort Worth Texas. Bowdy explained the medical procedure, which was executed in Dallas, as one "where they draw my blood, they spin it, they pull some different things out of it [and] they inject it right back into the joint."

Jay Bowdy will enter the 2012 UBA draft which will take place November 3, 2012 in Atlanta, GA.
