UBA Opening Weekend: Georgia PRIME vs. Atlanta Titans - Dec 14, 2012

David Walls Reports:
December 14, 2012

The 2012-13 UBA regular campaign is set to tip off, and the Georgia PRIME are opening the year against the Atlanta Titans at the Atlanta Andrew Young YMCA.

Though the season is only just beginning, there is no shortage of question marks surrounding these two franchises.

Can the Atlanta Titans return to the UBA finals without James Williams (6'3''-G/F-87, college: Victory)? Will the return of Michael Davis lead the PRIME at a high-level with the signing of DeAndre Bray (5'6''-G-85, agency: Gamble Sports Management, college: Jacksonville St.) and Mike Crain (6'2''-G-84, college: Valdosta St.)? Who will emerge as the Titans leader? Can Bray and Crain play well together with sharp shooter Derrick Allen (6'5''-G/F-85, agency: Pro One Sports, college: Valdosta St.) offense?

Keys to the game:

Atlanta Titans: Mike Dennis has made his self one of the coach coaches in the UBA leading the Titans to the UBA finals before starting as a wild card. Tay Barber (6'0''-G-86, college: Life) will be the lead guard for the Titans, but how will he mix with Tony Omotayo (6'5''-F-85, college: Ft.Valley St.). Omotayo has become a popular figure after winning Import Player of the Year after a big breakout in the UBA playoffs last season. The X-factor of the group would have to be 2011 UBA Rookie of the Year Chris Miller-Williams (6'6''-F/G-87, college: W.Georgia). Miller-Williams returns to the UBA from Iceland where he was named Eurobasket.com All-Icelandic Forward of the Year while averaging 22.3ppg and a league best 12.5rpg.

Georgia PRIME: Michael Davis is by far the most popular coach in the minor league circuit. Winning back to back Usbasket.com Coach of the Year awards before being named UBA League Commissioner after 4 years with 2 rings under his belt. Now he has returned to where he belongs which I feel give the PRIME the edge. Davis added the best pure point guard of the league and the top rookie in the draft (Crain).

This game will be close and will come down to coaching. The players will play well but coaching will win this game.

And that's just to name to name to few.

Which makes this game must-see.
