I expect Albany to win big over Oklahoma

Final Standings:
1. Albany P. 13-6
2. E.Kentucky 10-7
3. Lawton Ft.Sill 11-1
4. Minot S. 6-9
seeing as we are 4-0 against Albany by an average win of over 6pts/game this season, explain how you think that Albany is going to win big???? What a mindless prediction

Sounds like the USBL. And all they are looking for are teams to play in the league.

I've not posted in here for a while, but I heard the rumor of the CBA folding in the Xplosion DB. I think everything went down hill after we left. The league is no good with just 4 teams and I love the optimism of some. Lawton-Ft. Sill and Minot have been dropping in turnouts, since last years Championships, which is sad. I think the best thing would be for a merging with the PBL, which is what I'm hoping the Xplosion will do if we can find a new owner.
I miss our rivalries with E.K..

Does it really matter who wins? But I'd take Albany...

As long as it isn't he who must not be named in minor league basketball.

crash22... get ready for a new Albany team... this isn't the same team that Lawton handled rather easily earlier this year. The new-look Patroons will be a much tougher task. Harvey is playing like a man possessed.

Too bad as it came to this, but some loyal fans will remain... the only question is whether or not there will be a home team or a league to follow.

I agree, ot.

According to an article in the Bismarck Tribune, it's official.

Better link.

It would be a shame to see the CBA brand disappear after all these years. Though, you have to admit, it hasn't been what it once was for quite a while.

Isiah, you should have sold it when you had the chance. Moron.

Was just coming on here to say the same thing, as there is a copy of the Bismarck Tribune sitting right in front of me.

Except for a few teams in the Northeast, what makes you think life in the PBL is any better? Please note their general avoidance of announcing attendance figures. That's a big red flag. I don't think it would've helped to merge with the PBL. Losing money is still losing money despite the league. IMO, the CBA should have taken the season off. The old unwritten rule about mandatory continuous play for survival should be thrown-out the window. We are experiencing economic times that most people have not experienced in their lifetime.
