  • Sunkings Draft To Early Season Review +

    St.Louis, MO - With their 1st round pick traded in exchange for Frank Williams, the Sunkings weren't looking too much at the rookie class of this years draft. They ended up with PF Ike Azevedo at #43, which was said to be a judgement call without great scouting up ahead. "We felt that Ike was the best player available by then. Sure, he probably will never be a star in the OBWL, but we liked his ability to score and rebound, which can be very usefull for spot minutes off the bench", said Sunkings GM Dominik Jenewein. And Azevedo delivered so far, playing for the Sunkings OBDL affiliate - the New Orleans Doubloons. In 14 games off the bench, the young PF Read More

  • Timothy Adler Voted Into All-Rookie 1st Team +

    St.Louis, MO - 10 points, 3 rebounds and a TS% of nearly .55 in 20 minutes. 1st Overall Rookie SG Timothy Adler of the St.Louis Sunkings can look back on a quite decent rookie season. Being drafted at the tender age of 19, Adler was tipped to win rookie of the year award, but felt short to 23 year old C David Watts, who himself played an outstanding season for the Buzzards, starting all 80 games and playing 34 minutes each. Watts was certainly more OBWL ready, therefore deserved the Award. Adler however, who has incredible upside, was part of the All-Rookie 1st team, alongside Watts, Spurlock, Picchardo and Willhite. "Timmy has played a very solid first season. He already scores Read More

  • Sunkings Season Review - Offseason and Preseason +

    St.Louis, MO - Missing playoffs because of a tiebreaker is never an easy thing to live with, looking back at the St. Louis SunKings season however, there has been a lot of positive things to talk about.

  • Tiebraker Makes SunKings Miss Playoffs +

    St. Louis, MO - It has been a nailbiter, close untill the last game. Both, the Dragoons and the SunKings, finish the season 40-40 and therefore tied for the 8th playoff spot in the AmCon. They split the series, which leads to the next factor as a tiebreaker: The Dragoons have won more games in the American Conference, giving them the edge and therefore the 8th spot. "It'ws incredibly unlucky for us. All of us did everything to reach the playoffs, in the end it's just so close. But I think everyone has seen that the SunKings have changed. Our winning streak prior to the injuries made us one of the best teams in the league for 2 monts. We'll be Read More
