Indiana Invaders Press Releases

  • Invaders Fans treated to Depth +

    Indianapolis, Indiana> It has been a common refrain for the past few season, get Cleveland Hall some help. Some teams like to clear cap space to use during free agency, however the Invaders like to clear cap space to pickup salary during offseason trades apparently. Last season the team found a way to bring both Goot and Bixby into the mix which was celebrated by fans. The team went from 36 wins to 44 and a return to the playoffs however the lack of team depth showed as the Invaders dropped 4 in a row to the Blackjacks. But they were close, even though it was a sweep, the club only lost those 4 games by 10 points, combined. So Read More
  • Invaders bring home some hardware +

    Indianapolis, Indiana> Despite missing the playoffs, the Invaders were honored with some OBWL hardware in the offseason. After pulling down ROTY awards every month but one, it came as no surprise that rookie PG Lynwood Jamison won the rookie of the year award this season in the OBWL. Jamison ensured quite a bit during his rookie season, first of all, he was expected to be drafted much higher than where the Invaders actually took him. With Jamison stock seemingly plummeting during the draft, the Invaders frantically tried to get a 2nd first round pick to be able to draft him. After striking out on a deal with several teams, the Invaders and Inferno came to a deal which sent the Read More
  • Invaders cant buy a road win +

    Indianapolis, Indiana> While the Invaders look well on their way to rebounding from the disastrous 27 win 2017 season which saw Cleveland Hall and Rik McDaniel both injured for large parts of the season, they are starting to run out of time in the 2018 campaign as the allstar game approaches and the finger can be directly pointed at the clubs atrocious road record. The 2017 club managed to pull a 11-29 records on the road coupled with a shoddy 16-24 home record and while this season the Invaders have been extremely strong at home with a 15-6 record, they just have no answers on the road with a 3-15 record and infact those 3 wins came early on in Read More
  • Invaders Bow Out in Round 2 +

    Indianapolis, Indiana> The Invaders season came to an end in the 2nd round with a game 5, 104-113 against the Kansan City Pioneers. This game seemed to epitomize the series where the Invaders kept things close but were never really a threat to make more out of that. After falling behind 3-1 for a 2nd series in a row, there was no magic comeback this time, the Invaders had the full strength of their roster available this time and infact it was the Pioneers who were shorthanded for most of the series losing PG Darrell Edwards after 8 minutes played in game 2 for the series as well as SF\SG Rudy Akamine for game 3. The game plan for the Read More
  • Invaders Force Game 7 +

    Indianapolis, Indiana> The series will be heading back to Tampa Bay. The Invaders took game 6 102-99 to tie the series at 3-3 and force a 7th and deciding game between the two AmCon East rivals. Game 6 was an interesting matchup. The Tritons decided to start SF Andy Teeters actually at SF in an attempt to move him away from a direct matchup on Cleveland Hall and to get a move defensive minded James Sawyer on him instead. It didnt really work with Hall getting 29 points (12-24 shooting, 5-7 from 3pt range) while chipping in 11 rebounds 4 steals and a block for good measure. The only downside to his game was 6 turnovers, however on the series Read More
  • Indiana extends series with game 5 road win. +

    Indianapolis, Indiana> It was a tough road ahead after the Invaders dropped game 4 at home 107-98 in Lane Burton's return from injury and first game in the series. Burton just didn’t look himself going 3-11 from the floor with 2 assists, rebounds, steals and turnovers in 24 minutes. Some felt he rushed back from injury a bit too soon after seeing the struggles the team had at the point positions in the previous games in the series. Game 4 was a strange game with the Invaders building a 26-18 first quarter lead, then watching it evaporate and then some going into the half down 53-48. The team clawed back a bit in the 3rd to be down by 3 Read More
  • Invaders Trail Tritons 2-1 as reinforcements have fully arrived +

    Indianapolis, Indiana> The Indiana Invaders offense is built on a the triple threat option offense. On any given night any of those threats can go off and when they are all on their game, it is a sight to watch. With the league best offense with 105.3ppg the players know where their bread is buttered. So the team knew they were in tough when they would be without Fast Lane for the first three games and Cleveland Hall for game 1 of the series. While the Invaders are build on the triple threat, there is not a lot of depth off the bench and coach Roman likes to work his horses. The gap between the starters and the bench, especially Read More
  • Invaders close the season on a 13-3 run, take 7th seed in AmCon +

    Indianapolis, Indiana> The Invaders knew they just needed to keep it close and that they would finally get some releif to a brutal schedule at the end of the season and that is exactly what they did. Falling as far as 2 games back of the 8th spot that was close enough as the team played 11 of their last 15 games at home and finally saw non playoff teams on the road. The end result was the team finished the year going 13-3 and got into the playoffs as the 7th seed. However it wasnt without a lot of nail biting along the way. PG Lane Burton was injured in the third last game of the season with a Read More
  • Invaders Back to .500 +

    Indianapolis, Indiana> It has been a long road back to .500 for the Invaders this season who currently sit at 14-14 after 28 games this season and in a position that many didnt expect in preseason predictions. With the main players being the same in PG Lane Burton, SG Cleveland Hall, and SF Rik McDaniel and as strong as any 1,2,3 in the league many were predicting big things. But as is often the case the offensive players get all the attention and you can miss the impact other lunch pail guys bring and in particular there were 3 moves which disrupted the team aspect. #1) Dillion Saukkola announced his retirement. Certainly no spring chicken, Saukkola would have entered this Read More
  • Burton, Hall, Schulz to represent Invaders in Allstar festivities +

    Indianapolis, Indiana> The Indiana Invaders will be represented during the festivities by three players this season. Lane Butron has been absolutely on fire in the first half of the year whereas some felt before the season that the 33 year old may start to show his age. Well Burton has responses with bringing even more to the table in his second year with the Invaders than the first. Burton is averaging 23.87ppg on 51.4% shooting, 6.83apg, 2.85spg, 3.89rpg. Burton has never been asked to be THE guy in Indiana, just one of many and so while his days of 30ppg averages may be over, what he brings is pure allstar consistency day in and day out. How fitting then that Read More
