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.
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.
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.
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.

The GIE Maile Matrix have developed a knack for beating the best in the South. They did it again on Sunday night, rallying from a 15-point, first-quarter deficit for a 90-81 victory over the Atlanta Legends. Jermaine Barnes (6'4''-G/F-83, college: Point, GA, agency: Gamble Sports Management) scored a season-high 40 points and 8 rebounds as the Matrix, who are second in the South, improved to 4-1 combined against the Atlanta Legends and Georgia Spartans this season. ''This is the team we had to beat,'' Barnes said. ''I think we get up for the big games like the Legends. We've just got to come with a better mindset for games that we feel like we should win. We know we can play with anybody, we've proven that. But for now I'm happy with the direction of the team.'' GIE led by two early in the third quarter before Barnes scoring the next 15 points, capped by a 3-pointer to end the third. "I knew it was a matter of time before I got hot", said Barnes. Coming back from this injury has been hell for me. I needed this.
