UBA continues to produce overseas talent - Oct 21, 2012

Chris
Miller-Williams

Over the past three seasons the UBA has placed over 100 players overseas. One of the great things about the company has to be the opportunity for athletes with below average resumes elevating their international stock. When you think of some of the top minor leagues in the past (USBL, CBA) transitions top talent to the NBA or top leagues overseas, most of the player had names. The UBA is the only league that takes players with no name and develops the players skill set along with the resume.

One of the best examples woud be Chris Miller-Williams (6'6''-F/G-87, college: W.Georgia) of Atlanta, GA. Miller-Williams played his college basketball at South Carolina State before transferring to D2 West Georgia. At West Georgia he averaged just 11ppg and 5 rebounds. After college Williams had no offers and just a dream.

I joined the UBA because they gave players like me the opportunity to prove myself, said Miller-Williams. Coming from a small school no one would give me the opportunity. Now I am living my dream.

Now Miller-Williams stars for Icelandic KFI Reykjavik. In 2011-12 the team played in the 2nd Division and Miller-Williams was named leagues Forward of the Year. He averaged an impressive 22.4ppg and a league best 13.3rpg. Stats are good and awards are nice but he carried the club to a league best 17-1 record and a league championship. This helped the team move up to the top league in the country. Miller-Williams is now in his second season with KFI Reykjavik averaging 18 points and 13.0 rebounds per game.

Although we know that Iceland is a mid-major overseas country, the story of Chris Miller-Williams is a great example of the work thats being done in the UBA. The company grooms young men into professional athletes instead of bringing in a player with it all as a pit stop. Sometimes its simply about changing lives.

Several UBA players from the 2011-2012 season have recently signed contracts to play overseas this fall. This would add on to the continuous growth of the league and its mission to move players on to the next level. Below you will find the players that have moved on from the 2011-12 UBA season.
