The Fresh has always played as N Texas, both in the ABA & UBA. Their website has always listed them as NTX. Even last year when the UBA scheduled the Fresh as Fort Worth they still played as NTX. Shreveport played them last year (and this year too) and listed them NTX: http://www.abamavericks.com/schedule...4&s=Basketball
Also, I heard that the Chicago Force of the MPBA played previously in the ABA as the Aurora Force. Their last game was back in 2011 though they were scheduled as late as December 2012. Mainly they were a fill-in team for the Steam.
The UMBL will be playing this summer but that league isnt structured like most Minor Leagues. They play showcase games vs the teams that I've sent to them over the last 3 seasons and we will continue to help them when they need dates filled. Last season they got tied up with the Fayetteville Shipmen and Mike Dixon who came on board along with the CBL teams the Garner Grey Hawks and the Raleigh Rough Riders then games where being canceled by these teams. Larry does the UMBL as a Christian Outreach Ministries, his organization is run the right way and I like the guy and will work with him as long as they continue to play. I moved to ECBL to have a league ran by the owners so we cantinue to be successful and not have individuals make the decesions for entire league. We will have 8-10 teams in ECBL and will be up on www.usbasket.com as well. If you have any questions fill free to contact me at any time. chris thomas 803-554-9286
