Derek Polly is the owner and CEO of the Lynchburg Titans. He graduated from Liberty University with a degree in Business Management.

The Titans played their first season in the Premier Basketball League in 2013-14.

The Titans may have only finished 1-11 this year but as an owner Polley has much to be proud of.

The Titans' Jamaal Francis was awarded Rookie of the Year after leading the league with a 33.9 points per game average.

Francis is also a member of the All PBL-First Team and another Titan, Jeremi Booth was voted to be on the All PBL-Second Team.
Tawan Slaughter is the owner of the Buffalo 716ers and the Erie Hurricane.

Both teams were first time competitors in the Premier Basketball League in the 2013-14 season.

Tawan has been able to manage two basketball teams because of her historical success growing up playing basketball.

In high school she averaged nearly 40 points per game and was just as much as a strong asset in college when she played for Buffalo State.

She also understands success off the court is just as important as success on the court. Currently, both the Hurricane and the 716ers are hosting youth clinics where some of their star players will help train some of the young up and coming talent in the New York and Pennsylvania areas.
Bryant Austin of the Lima Express was recently named the Premier Basketball League's Most Valuable Player of the Year.

Austin wasn't in the U.S. when it was announced he won the award though. Shortly after the PBL season ended, Bryant went to play for a team in Hong Kong, China that is making their inaugural debut.

"I've been given an amazing opportunity to help Eastern (the new franchise team) reach the Division I level here in Hong Kong. In order to do that we must win the championship, without any losses, which is why they hired me," stated Austin.
