January 6, 2012 - Premier Basketball League (PBL) Dayton Air Strikers


After winning the PBL Preseason Tournamentin December the Dayton Air Strikers will start the PBL Season opener against Charlestonon Friday, January 6th. The game will be at Trent Arena in Kettering at 7:30p as the Strikers look to start out the season the way they ended the IBL season and the PBL preseason - Winning. The Strikers have won 7 straight games in the respective IBL and PBL and look to continue that winning formula on Friday. This team has been led byPenn St. grad and local player Brandon Hassell along with Pikeville College's William "Bo" Harris and former Milwaukee- Wisconsin G Avery Smith. The buzz in the PBL cities has been that the Air Strikers could challenge the champions of last season the (Rochester Razorsharks). Rochester was in attendance when the Air Strikers won the PBL preseason title at Lake Michigan, and the staff was impressed, look for a great regular season as the Strikers and Razorsharks will compete in the same division, along with Charleston (WVA), Lake Michigan and Scranton (PA).

There will be some new faces on the team, along with some of the players from last summer season in the IBL. Gone will be CJ Anderson, Marcus Thompson, and Jerrelle Redden, and others from last amongst others, whileQuade Milum agreed to join the Harlem Globetrotters. However there will be some new faces such as Laron Mann, Aaron Perry & Mike Troll, who have relished the opportunity to step in and make their presence known. The Strikers will continue to develop talent from the Miami Valley area, as one local will be counted on to make a impact this season (Daquan Walker). In addition making his rookie debut into the pro ranks (Devaughn Buntyn). Both of these local legends played at Dayton Dunbar High School.
Please welcome the Gwizz to the PBL.

I can tell by the score that it must have been worth it. How many were there?

That's nice to start with, but they better improve if they want to succeed, while I don't know how much it holds.

Improve.

The word you used in your post.

It's 2:25am and I'm still jacked up over what I saw at the Air Strikers game tonight.. and this is coming from a person who's had his sports work viewed on live television by 400 million+ people around the world every 2 weeks for the better part of several years.. my point is that I've seen highs, lows, and exciting moments.. and tonight was exciting..

Do they need to improve?

The Air Strikers have already improved. In all areas.

They're immediately the "most improved" team in Ohio in 2012.

Do they need to improve even more? Sure. There's tons more they can do. But tonight is not the night for that. Tonight they deserve a pat on the back, specifically because they did improve so much from where they were before.
