Battle Creek Knights Finish 2010-2011 Winter Season

January 27, 2011 - International Basketball League (IBL)
Battle Creek Knights News Release

Battle Creek, MI- The Battle Creeks Knights, a professional basketball team playing in the International Basketball League (IBL), has finished up the 2010-2011 Winter Season taking 3rd place in the Championship tournament held at Kellogg Arena (Battle Creek Michigan) on January 15th & 16th.

This was the Battle Creek Knights 7th season playing in the International Basketball League (IBL). In previous years the Knights have played in the IBL Spring/Summer League although this past season Mikal Duilio, Commissioner of the IBL agreed to start a Winter Season and the Knights and 8 other teams played games in that season (four teams played the required games to play in the playoffs). The new Winter Season was a huge success for the Knights- as the attendance was twice that of the Spring/Summer Season- "I think our fans were just thinking more about basketball this time of year", said Executive Sales Director Michelle Genier.

A look at what some of the former Battle Creek Knights players are doing now:

6' 6" forward Rece Hampton- played for the Knights in 2010, is now playing for the NBDL Texas Legends, a NBA minor league team owned by the Mavericks. Rece is averaging 35 minutes a game.

6' 9" forward BJ Walker- played for the Knights in both the Spring/Summer & Winter Season spent his summer overseas and now is on his way back.

6' 6" guard Everett Spencer- played for the Knights in both the Spring/Summer & Winter season will be playing for the PBL.

6' 2" point guard Gregg Barlow- is looking at going to either Lithuania or Germany in the next few months.

5' 10" guard Joseph Powell- played for the Knights in both the Spring/Summer & Winter Season has now found himself in Switzerland playing with an American USA Basketball team.

6' 1" guard John Battle- averaged 30 points and 6 rebounds for the Knights in this recent Winter season but Battle has not seized an opportunity overseas yet.
