ATLANTA, GA

[Thanks to an assist from the wonderful Basketball-ubabasket.com web site, I gathered together the last four UBA Drafts (2009-2012) with an array of intended analysis in mind.]
We breakdown this seasons draft and compare it to the last 4 UBA drafts. This is based on the following:

- average performance of players by their draft pick number
- draft with the most players overseas
- Which team has sent the most overseas
- Performance of drafted players

From 2006-2009 the UBA was not in existence. It was known as the URBL. The league was run by Mac Claire and was looked as just a regional league for average basketball players. The league never really got the respect it was longing for until 2009 when they signed up the DFW Disciples. The Disciples were run by D.J. Douglas (now head coach of the GIE Maile Matrix). Douglas brought in what we know now as the movement; signing players like J. B. Barnes, Mike Sloan and Jerone Boyd. The Disciples would move on to win the URBL championship. Later the URBL was bought out by the Trinity Group which changed the name to the UBA.

With 2009 being the dawn of a new error we count that draft class. Below you will find year by year draft classes and breakdowns.

2008-2009: (Draft order)
*Player that signed overseas from 09 draft: (six players signed overseas contracts)

Round 3
3/1 Dallas Ft. Worth: Jerome Boyd (6'8''-F/C-84, college: Clayton St.) (Uruguay)*1st Team All-League
3/5 Irving: Will De La Cruz (6'2''-G-80, college: Atlanta Christian) (Dominican Rep.)*2nd Team All-League

1/2. Georgia Lions - Kevin Sims (5'10''-G-88, college: Tulane) (Romania) *3rd Team All-League

3rd Round
3/2. Texas Cyclones - Will Morning (6'8''-F-88, college: McNeese St.) * Western Conference Player of the Year

Breakdown:

Based off review its no question that the 2010 class was the best so far. So with being said; what about the 2012 class? Well the UBA will have its tryouts next month so all of the draft prospects are not out. But from the information we have it should be a tough class.

We know for sure that VSU star Michael Crain will be entering the draft. The reigning SEBL MVP will be in the draft and should be an easy top 5 selection. Another big name in this draft would be Quin Humphrey. He has a lot of professional experience including 3 seasons in the NBA Dleague.

Below you will find more names that should be seen in the 2012 UBA draft:

Jeremy Price (6'8''-F-88, agency: Strategic Sports, college: Georgia)
Jeremy Caldwell (6'8''-F/C-87, agency: Strategic Sports, college: Jackson St.)
James Justice (5'10''-PG-89, college: Martin Methodist)
Quin Humphrey (6'5''-G/F-84, college: Youngstown St.)
Mike Crain (6'2''-G-84, college: Valdosta St.)
Qadr Owens (6'1''-G-88)
Luis Guzman (6'4''-G-87, college: Temple)
Jay Bowdy (6'6''-F-83, college: W.Georgia)
Roscoe Davis (6'11''-F-88, agency: Strategic Sports, college: Midland CC)
Jermaine Abraham (6'8''-F-88, agency: Athlete Management Group, college: Elizabeth City)
Darius Mcknight (6'8''-F-90, college: Columbus St.)
Barry Wellington (6'1''-G-87, college: Mountain St.)
Derrick Allen (6'5''-G/F-85, college: Valdosta St.)
A'Daeron Duncan (6'5''-F-87, college: N.Kentucky)
