Daniel Hicks gave them West Virginia (not Angel) uniforms to play the game in. Then Daniel Hicks split right after game and left with all the money!!!
So, Hicks got a Grand, drove himself to South Carolina and back and pocketed all the excess money which would be at least $700.
I do not know exact amount Scott Henderson wired Daniel Hicks, but it was at least $1000 because that is what Scott Henderson was trying to wire Coach Steve initially to do it.
Brian said they were severely outmatched and the place was packed with fans and that it was a total embarrassing blowout. Brian said he originally went to West Virginia way back in October or November to tryout. Hicks sent a contract to Brian and about five others and told them they were on the team. They had a different coach at the time. Then Daniel Hicks brought in coach Steve and Steve wanted to look at all players at a workout. So, Brian and those original four other players would not go back to work out for Steve because they had already been there and had been promised a contract. That is how Daniel Hicks knew about them and that they lived right there in South Carolina.
Daniel Hicks called them at 8pm Friday night before the game, to play the game the next day. He drove to South Carolina alone with the Money wired to him by Scott Henderson then split right after the game and paid no one. I am sure he told Scott Henderson he was renting a van and bringing players from West Virginia.
To date, there have been at least 25 players ( probably more ) from all over the country duped into driving or flying to Charleston, SC on their own dime under the pretense they were trying out for a legitimate team ( Most of them paid a tryout fee - I hear $100 ). None of them received housing or meals.
After a quick search on Daniel Hicks, many wonder what the PBL officials were thinking dealing with him. And its not hard to find out what he did just a few years ago. If he had any money though, he would be an ABA-caliber team owner.
Really goes to show how far PBL sunk. They're not much better than any other alphabet league.
