UBA Analysis break down 2012 Draft: Which class was better 2009-2012? - Sep 9, 2012

[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.

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)

Barnes and Oxley Lead Matrix to 100-97 Comeback Win Over Vipers - 3 days ago
David Walls Reports 2/26/2017 Jermaine Barnes (6'4''-G/F-83, college: Point, GA, agency: Gamble Sports Management) had his first triple double of the season recording 30 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for the Matrix. It marked his first triple since the 2011-12 UBA season. After such a big night you would think Barnes would be the topic, but a third quarter explosion (18 points) by Anthony Oxley (5'9''-PG-86, college: Mount Aloysius) sparked the Matrix comeback. Anthony Oxley added 3...   [read more]

Parks 27 points leads Spartans over unbeaten Generals 110-100 - 3 days ago
David Walls Reports 2/26/2017 Spartans coach Antonio Brown wasn't exactly thrilled with his team's shootout win over the Southern Generals on Saturday night. "I didn't think we played well at all," said Brown, disappointed by his club's defensive effort as both squads set season scoring highs in Spartan's 100-110 victory. Bernard Parks (6'3''-SG-90, college: Point, GA), who led the Spartans with 27 points and 10 assists, also acknowledged the Spartans lack of focus,"We have to do better...   [read more]
