Kentucky Bisons win ABA Championship
The Kentucky Bisons triumphed, 127-120 over the Maywood Buzz in the ABA Final Game on Sunday night in Nashville, TN, at Municipal Auditorium. The Owensboro's minor league Pro team did done in their first season what others have tried to do year after year, be in the final championship game, and w3in it. Maywood started doing what they have done all year, letting their star point guard Wesley Stokes (6'0''-G-82, college: San Diego St.) run the team and Kenny Wright (6'1''-G-81), Isaac Burton (6'3''-G-73, agency: Globalsports/Globalevents, college: Arizona St.) and Lemar Gayle (6'6''-F-79, college: CSU Bakersfield) scoring at will. The first quarter was very close with Kentuckys duo in the paint Boris Siakam, and Kenny Jones (6'6''-F-84, college: Kentucky St.) working hard to establish the inside game. At the end of the first quarter Kentucky trailed, and would continue to run behind most of the game. Holding the lead had Maywood constantly fighting off Kentucky. The Bisons continually launched runs on Maywood never falling more than eight points behind in the first half. The second quarter ended with the Bisons down 63-69. The second half proved even tougher for Kentucky as they found themselves in a hole trailing by as much as eighteen points. But Kentucky came back, and cut the lead to five early in the fourth quarter. Maywood had other plans and quickly enlarged the gap back up to thirteen. Around the five-minute mark of the fourth, the Bisons made their assault, and it worked: they took the lead with less than three minutes left, and won the game 127-120. Michael James (5'9''-G-85, college: Florida Intern.) finished the game with 16 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists and was voted the game Most Valuable Player. The high scorer for Kentucky was Mike Wells (6'3''-G-79, agency: Liman Sports, college: W.Kentucky) with 26 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 blocks. Wells had 24 of his points coming from eight 3-point baskets leading the Bisons to the title. Brandon Stockton (5'9''-G-84, college: Kentucky) added 24 points and 4 assists. Kenny Jones had 15 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 steals in the win

ABA Slam Dunk and 3-Point Shooting Champions emerge
In addition to great ABA playoff games and the ABA All Star Game, the best of the ABA's 3-point shooting and slam dunk specialists took part in spirited contests to see who would emerge as the Champions for the 2009-2010 season. Preceding the championship game between the Kentucky Bisons and the Maywood Buzz, the players put on a dazzling performance with the three finalists in each category to compete at halftime of the championship game. In the three point shooting contest, Curtis Lewis (5'11''-G-82, college: Trevecca Naz.) of the Nashville Broncs defeated Eric Smith (6'1''-G-83, college: Campbell) of the Chicago Steam and Benjamin Hebl (6'2''-G, college: Maryville Univ.) of the Texas Fuel in a very close battle. In the Slam Dunk contest, Eric Smith of the Chicago Steam dazzled the crowd with his performance narrowly beating Michael Blue (6'5''-F-86, college: Hiwassee JC) of the Knoxville Thunderbolts and Marquis Patton (6'2''-G, college: Fisk) of the Nashville Broncs. 'If anyone ever doubted the skills of the ABA players,' said Joe Newman, ABA CEO, 'all they have to do is watch them shoot and slam dunk. These guys are talented, gifted athletes with amazing skills and can compete with the best basketball players in the world.'
