ABA team coming to Utica-Rome
Posted Thursday, April 8, 2021 12:00 pm
The 315 Wreckers are the newest team to join the American Basketball Association.

The team will be based out of the Utica-Rome area. Coaches on the staff include Stephen Babiarz, Jeffery Litz and Chris Wittman. The team’s owner is Nicole Caquias.

Tryouts for the team will be held on April 25 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Utica Center for Developments Gymnasium, located on Court Street in Utica. Those who want to try out do not need experience playing at the collegiate level, but they need to have the time to be dedicated to the team, community and have the skills to succeed within the league.

The team is still searching for a home gym, but they hope to build their own facility within the year. The 2021 season will begin on Nov. 1. The team will participate in the ABA summer league to get acclimated with one another and other teams in the league. There are over 200 teams involved with the ABA throughout the country.

For more information, contact Caquias at 315-601-8101 or
For those who recall the tremendous efforts of our own Chuck the Writer and his regaling us of the exploits of the Utica Wreckers, this brought a tear to my eye. :)
