'With the departure of the NBA's NJ (Brooklyn) Nets from the area, I, along with the other owners in the division felt that having a divisional showcase just made sense. Bringing the tri-state talent together for not only the Express, but also for the Vipers, Thunder and TopBallerz, to be able to evaluate the players all under 1 roof'; stated Marsha Blount, Owner of the Jersey Express.
Trevor Hairston, Co-Owner of the Connecticut TopBallerz ‘after a successful inaugural season in 2011-2012, we are looking to work with our northeast division, to expand the ABA brand within the tri-state area. Working with our division chairman NJ Express Marsha and SI Vipers Ayanna and Kyle, we are looking to evaluate talent all in one place, creating top competition in a professional atmosphere.
Ayanna Phillip, Co-Owner of the Staten Island Vipers stated ‘having a Regional Showcase instead of individual team tryouts benefits our conference as well as the ABA. It’s an advantage for the local talent to have a better opportunity to showcase their skills for each team in the Northeast Division and it gives us a wider selection of players that will be able to compete on a pro level.
