D.J. Douglas

The reigning champion GIE Maile Matrix enter the 2012-13 UBA season as the league's elite team, but who knows what the next six months will hold for Jermaine Barnes (6'5''-G/F-82, agency: Gamble Sports Management, college: Point, GA) and his teammates as they attempt to defend their title. Mike Crain and the Cleveland Havok are hungrier than ever. The Georgia PRIME have reloaded with the hiring of Michael Davis and the drafting of the big 3 (Mike Crainin, Derrick Allen and DeAndre Bray), and the Houston Express have stocked their roster with new faces.

Here's a look at how the league's 15 teams stand before the season starts in December:

1. GIE Maile Matrix (19-1 last season): 3 of the 4 UBA titles.
2012 UBA Draft Grade: B+
Returning Starters:
Jermaine Barnes (MVP, UBA All-Star, 1st Team All-UBA), Freddie Williams (1st Team All-UBA, All-Star)
X-Factor: Calvin O'Neil

Breakdown: GIE are the favorites to win yet another UBA title. What more do you have to say when you have Freddie Williams and Jermaine Barnes. With the additions of Brian Kelly (6'8''-F-85, college: Clayton St.) and Calvin O'Neil the Matrix have the supporting cast to help league stars. The draft was also a great success for the Matrix with the selections of Quin Humphrey (6'5''-G/F-84, college: Youngstown St.), James Fields (6'4''-G-89, college: Georgia St.), Jamar Taylor (6'9''-F-87, college: Georgia St.) and Brad Martin (6'2''-G-85, college: Dakota St.). Humphrey and PRIME's Mike Crain are favored to win leagues Rookie of the Year honors.

2. Houston Express (15-5): 2011 Western Conf. Champs
2012 UBA Draft Grade: B+
Returning Starters:
Brayon Brown (3rd Team All-UBA), Anthony Allison (UBA All-Star, HM All-UBA)
X-Factor: Terence Morris (6'10''-F-79, college: Maryland)

Breakdown: Terence Morris, Terence Morris, Terence Morris. Morris is not favored to win UBA Rookie of the Year honors simply because he will be the leagues MVP. No disrespect to Barnes and GIE but Morris is a force. He will dominate the league. Aside from Morris the Express return Brayon Brown, the reining Western Conference MVP and partner in crime Anthony Allison. With these two surrounding Morris they may take it all.

3. Georgia PRIME
2012 UBA Draft Grade: A+
Returning Starters: 0
X-Factor: Richard Lusane (6'5''-G/F-84, college: Valdosta St.)

Breakdown: It's PRIME TIME!!!!!!!!!!!. Michael Davis is back in a big way. The 2-time UBA Coach of the Year is back to claim what he created; A UBA title. Davis started his recruiting with the leagues top point guard DeAndre Bray. With Bray as the foundation the PRIME look to be a power in the South. Along side Bray will be the #1 pick of the PRIME (Mike Crainin). Crain is favored to be the leagues Rookie of the year. The PRIME also selected sharp shooter Derrick Allen and "Mr. Everything" Richard Lusane. The PRIME are already feared throughout the UBA and will be a force.

4. Lancaster Aftermath
2012 UBA Draft Grade: B+
Returning Starters: 0
X-Factor: Chad McKnight (6'7''-F-84, college: Morehead St.)

Breakdown: The Aftermath have an impressive roster after selecting 3 players who all have European experience. Brandon Jennings (6'6''-F-83, college: Reinhardt) is no stranger to the South. Jennings attend Reinhardt College in 2006 where he was named a NAIA All-American. Chad McKnight would have to be the standout of the group with 5 lights out seasons in England.

5. Atlanta Titans (14-6): UBA Championship Runner-Up
2012 UBA Draft Grade: C+
Returning Starters:
James Williams (UBA All-Star, Most Improved Player, 2nd Team All-UBA), Tony Omotayo (Import Player of the Year)
X-Factor: Tay Barber (6'0''-G-86, college: Life)

Breakdown: The Titans (formally the GA Lions) became the hottest team in the UBA after adding Mike Dennis as head coach. James Williams returns after being signed to play in Uruguay. Omotayo has been the biggest surprise of the offseason since his breakout performance in the UBA finals (24pts 8 rebs). One things for sure, we can't count out the returning runner-up.

GIE Maile Matrix resign Darrell Waters - 1 month ago

David Walls Reports 8/16/2016 GIE Maile Matrix signed 31-year old forward Darrell "Bankhead" Waters (6'5''-F-85). It is actually his comeback to GIE Maile Matrix as he has played here before.
