ATLANTA-- Michael Davis has become the UBA's third commissioner.

The UBA posted a picture on its Twitter account Saturday of Davis holding a basketball and shaking hands with outgoing commissioner Travis McAvene.

McAvene joined the UBA as his assistant in 2012 and has been the deputy commissioner since 2015.

"It is a source of great satisfaction to me that the UBA will now be led by Commissioner Michael Davis , for whom I have tremendous admiration, respect and expectations as he and his experienced and dedicated team take the UBA to successes that were unimaginable even a short while ago," McAvene wrote Monday afternoon.

McAvene left the UBA the summer of 2016, and owners unanimously chose Davis as his successor. The UBA will now be under the reign of Davis.

Like McAvene, Davis left the coaching field to join the UBA. Originally head coach of the Georgia PRIME, he went on to become UBA Coach of the Year four times along with winning two UBA titles.

"The job has been open for two years now. We had to make this move for the future. With this being the 10 year Anniversary of the league I don't see a better fit than Mike Davis ," UBA Director Jeremy Ware wrote in an email.

The UBA was regarded as the top minor league in the USA between 2011-14. The league was featured in SLAM Magazine and Legends Jermaine Barnes (6'4''-G/F-83, college: Point, GA) featured in 2012. The brand has sent just over 210 players to the next level. But the obvious is the league has drop from its glory days. "I feel leadership is needed", said UBA Legends Jermaine Barnes. We need more strong leaders in the company like Michael Davis and Jeremy Ware . We need to return to the glory days. Adding Mike Davis is that step in the right direction.

"Its an honor to be back in the family I helped grow", said Davis. We will work to make this league great again. We have committed to expanding to 40 teams next season and will continue to grow.
