ECBL President Chris Thomas announced todaythat the league will be expanding in 2017. Florence Wildcats, based in Florence, South Carolina, will compete in the Southern Division.

This partnership is just another way we're going to help grow this city and this region. I know this sport; I love this sport; and what a great place to have it.'

Zack Alleyne, Director of Marketing added, 'We share the vision for this league and look forward to playing our part in making it a great success. Part of our responsibility is to grow the game of basketball, and this new team will play a significant role in that effort.'
