Player's Greatest Honor; MVP to Jackson Jr. 

The highest individual honor a player can receive is the League MVP award. This year, the 2015 Premier Basketball League MVP award goes to Troy Jackson Jr., of the Erie Hurricane.
Jackson Jr. led the league in scoring with 408 total points and 31.3-points per game. However, he was not only the team leader in most other offensive and defensive categories, but also amongst the league leaders as well. Troy led his team in assists (51), was second in total rebounds (53) and was the team leader in steals (23).
“Troy was no doubt the most critical player for his team and one of the most effective all-around players in the entire league,” stated commissioner Dennis Truax.


Perfect End for Coach of the Year

The 2014-15 Premier Basketball League Coach of the Year award goes to Robert Spon, head coach of the championship winning Rochester RazorSharks.

It’s the perfect finish to the perfect year for Coach Spon after he led the RazorSharks to an undefeated season and then swept the Lake Michigan Admirals in the championship series to win his first ever PBL title.

PBL Says Goodbye To Front Office Member
The Premier Basketball League is sad to announce the departure of their Public Relations Director, Anthony Weihofen.
After starting out as just an intern and working his way through the ranks to become the Public Relations Director, his dedication and wisdom will be greatly missed.
“He was always very involved in helping teams with their community efforts, marketing campaigns and just looking out for what he could do to help the overall growth of the league,” stated League Vice-President Dominic Turcotte.
Anthony Weihofen on his departure:
“It has been an honor and a pleasure to work for the PBL for nearly two years now. I was given an amazing opportunity and it is something I will never forget and am eternally thankful for. I think the PBL is a great league. Right now, the NBA only has the D-League for a ‘AAA’ affiliation, and in time I’d like to see the PBL get in there as well so that minor league basketball can become like hockey or baseball and have a ‘AAA’, ‘AA’ and ‘A’ farm system. I would like to finish by thanking all the team owners, the players, and all of the people I have directly worked with for being so great, I will miss you all.”
