For some, school is back in session. Which means one thing, summer is almost over. The time when kids throw their backpacks on, riding the bus and sitting behind a desk for most of the day taking notes has started or is right around the corner.
The Premier Basketball League would like to wish everyone the best of luck in their return or soon to be return to school. Study hard, pay attention and get those good grades, because with a good education, comes a great future.
We would also like to say thank you to all of our teachers in this world for everything they do in the classroom and the impact they have on our future through these young minds.
Riverhawks Sign All-American
The Danville Riverhawks signed their first player in team history and they wasted no time making sure that player would be a difference maker for the organization.
Matt Neaville is an NAIA All-American while playing for Union University in Tennessee.
Before he left a positive impact in Tennessee, Neaville was leaving fans in Danville with quite the show to see.
The 6-foot guard holds the NJCAA record for most three-pointers made in a single game (17) during his time at Parkland College.
An Urbana native, Neaville will bring a local flavor and the successful background to make the Riverhawks a valid team to keep an eye out for.
PBL Combine Reaches MaxCapacity
The Premier Basketball League has filled all available slots for the upcoming combine on Saturday, August 23rd.
The PBL is hosting their combine at the same venue that the NBA held theirs a couple months back. This brought an overwhelming number of interested submissions. Over 250 interested young men chose the PBL to pursue their professional basketball career.
Coaches, managers, owners and former NBA stars from around the league will be present to evaluate these young players skills to see who could potentially lead their team to the 2015 PBL Championship series.
For those who were not able to submit the form in time, we advise people to contact our teams individually via email, Facebook or Twitter about team tryouts and workouts.
Thank you and good luck to all!
NBA D-League Player to 'Sharks
The Rochester RazorSharks have added another star player to join Jerice Crouch and the Rochester Razorsharks 2014 PBL Championship winning team.
Combo guard Corey Allmond played in the NBA D-League last season for the Maine Red Claws, who are the farm team for the famous 17-time championship winning Boston Celtics.
The 26-year old, Allmond, has averaged 7.6 points per game and 1.8 rebounds per game over his three years in the NBADL.
"He's a great shooter, but he can also finish at the basket and defend at a high level," stated RazorSharks coach Robert Spon.
