Atlanta, GA

Saturday night it all goes down in the UBA. Battle of the two unbeaten top ranked teams in the UBA (GIE Maile Matrix, Georgia PRIME). The Southern Conference has produced over 100 players that have gone on to the next level rather overseas or to the NBA Dleague. This game will separate all debates of who is the best team in the UBA. But how could you choose? The GIE Maile Matrix are coached by reigning UBA Coach of the Year D.J. Douglas . The Georgia PRIME has 2-time UBA Coach of the Year Michael Davis . Both are very familiar with eachother and have very similar styles of play. The PRIME have the #1 offensive in the UBA (113ppg) and GIE has a selfish defensive ranking #1 in scoring for an opponent (80ppg). Below you will find the two team breakdowns, match-ups and X factors to the game.

GIE Maile Matrix: 2-0
The Matrix are led by reigning MVP Jermaine Barnes (6'5''-G/F-82, agency: Gamble Sports Management, college: Point, GA). Barnes is currently leading the UBA in scoring with 26.0ppg. Freddie Williams (6'2''-G-87, agency: Gamble Sports Management, college: Clayton St.) is off to a slow start but I expect this to be his break out game. Brian Kelly (6'8''-F-85, college: Clayton St.) is the surprise of the season and will need to have a performance like last week to defeat the PRIME. His defense on PRIME scorer Derrick Allen (6'5''-G/F-85, agency: Pro One Sports, college: Valdosta St.) will make or break the game.

Starters:
PG: Freddie Williams: 14.5ppg, 5.0rpg, 7.5apg, FGP: 47.1%
SG: Jermaine Barnes: *26.0ppg, 6.0rpg, 4.5apg, 3FGP: 50.0%
SF: Quin Humphrey: First game back from injury
PF: Brian Kelly: 14.0ppg, *18.0rpg, 2.0bpg, FGP: 52.3%
C: Tedric Hill: 8.0ppg, 10.5rpg, 2.0bpg, FGP: 46.7%

Walls X-Factor: The X-Factor of this game will be the play of Erick Gainous (6'3''-G-79, college: Georgia Perimeter). Gainous is by far GIEs best on ball defender and has the ability to play 4 positions the the D.J. Douglas Scheme. He is only averaging 6.0ppg; but it's the 5.0 rebounds, 5.0 assist and a league best 3.0 steals per game that's the most impressive in just 23.0 minutes of play. He has my early vote for 6-Man honors based on his all around dominance off the bench.

Georgia PRIME: 4-0
The PRIME have had a great season thus far. Mike Crain and DeAndre Bray (5'6''-G-85, agency: Gamble Sports Management, college: Jacksonville St.) are well and truly in MVP discussions and leading their team well. The PRIME hold the best record in basketball and need to pass GIE for the top spot respectfully to be named the baddest team in the UBA. Michael Davis knows the Matrix well coaching the from 2009-2011 wining 2 UBA championships. So we can expect a very personal game between these two clubs.

Walls X-factor: Richard Lusane (6'5''-G/F-84, college: Valdosta St.): Lusane has to be one of the most loved players in the UBA. Every coach raves about is play on both ends of the floor. He is currently averaging 18.3ppg, 7.0rpg and 5.0 assists per game. These number bring me to the mind of a Jason Kidd. Lusane will have the task of defending Jermaine Barnes which will be interesting. His play will determine there out come.

Starters:
PG: DeAndre Bray: 15.0ppg, 2.0rpg, *10.1apg, FGP: 50.0%
SG: Mike Crain: 19.0ppg, 5.3rpg, 4.5apg, 3FGP: 48.3%
SF: Richard Lusane: 18.3ppg, 7.0rpp, 5.0apg: FGP: 50.0%
PF: Derrick Allen: 23.3ppg, 7.0rpg, 2.0apg, 3FGP: 46.3%
C: Rahshon Turner: 16.7ppg, 11.3rpg, 1.8bpg, FGP: 51.7%
