"I know what i can do and I know that I am good but when you play with dudes like AT (Andy Teeters) and Jeev (Rajeev Seifert), you know, vets that have been around and have a big time name for themselves and score a bunc, well, you just never really feel like you gonna get recognized. I definitely feel like my guys respect me but not always the press, you know? I mean no offense to ya." "Ervin ptoved he Read More
  • TRITONS PULL AHEAD OF CHAOS; TEETERS SEEN JETTING OUT OF LA WITH WHO?? +

    The Tampa Bay Tritons retook the home-court advantage they had lost only days before to the Los Angeles Chaos with a 93-89 victory in LA. The Tritons played without All-League 1st Team and OBWL Scoring Champion Andy Teeters. “To come in here and get a win without AT is huge. JUST HUGE.”, exclaimed Hunter Heath. “We really needed that. We needed to prove we could win without our star and we did.” Rejeev Seifert led the way with a double-double (25pts 10rebs), “We didn’t shoot the ball real well but we did hit timely shots.”, stated Seifert. PG Ervin Glaser, the hero of Game 2, only scored 5 points in Game 3 but dished out 14 assists and grabbed 6 Read More

    The Andy Teeters Era in Tampa will be lasting at least four more seasons. Tampa Bay Tritons GM Tom Lacher confirmed that superstar SG Andy Teeters has signed a 4 year extension worth $86.4 million. “And honestly it was a no-brainer for us.”, stated Lacher. Teeters let it be known that he preferred to remain a Triton but was going to get what he felt was fair market value. “I want to be here but I also know what I am worth and I know other teams know what I am worth too.”, said Teeters. “I was gonna get a max and I wasn’t going to be overpaid like some guys in this league. I am worth every penny of Read More
  • TRITONS BREAK CAMP PREPARE FOR “NEW” SEASON +

    The Tampa Bay Tritons have high hopes entering the 2018 season. “It’s a new season, literally and figuratively, for us,” stated GM Tom Lacher, “and we are extremely excited and upbeat about what is happening.” The Tritons finished the preseason 4-2. That included win a win against the defending American Conference champions Kansas City Pioneers. “I think what impressed me the most during the preseason was that game.,” said Lacher. “We had just been beaten soundly by them in KC but we didn’t hang our heads and just go thru the preseason motion. Coach Toma got the guys to work and they responded and that was without Andy (Teeters, who was out with a sprained ankle). To me that is Read More
  • Problems in Tritons Front Office? +

    Tampa Bay Tritons owner Josue Johnson has publicly questioned the recent trade made by his General Manager. This has brought to light what might be a division in the top ranks of the Tritons organization. “There is definitely some tension there (relationship between Johnson and GM Tom Lacher)”, said an insider, who spoke on the condition on anonymity. “ They are certainly not on the same page right now but I wouldn’t say there is Team Josue and Team Tom in the front office….yet” The friction seemed to start as Lacher publicly shopped young forward Blake Cobb, long believed to be a building block of the Tritons. Cobb, an impending free agent, has decided, at least for now, not to sign Read More
  • Tritons Make Big Move +

    In a move that surprised some OBWL followers and shocked Triton fans everywhere, GM Tom Lacher pulled the trigger on a deal that changed the Tritons identity. PF Louis Lysne, a cornerstone of the franchise along with Andy Teeters, was dealt to the Las Vegas Blackjacks along with SG’s Mitch Copenhaver and Truman Badger for SF/SG Horace Rodriquez, veteran C Patrick Feher, rookies Ray Granger a 6’10” PF and Larry Burt a 6’2” PG and a 2019 1st that was originally Indiana’s. “The trade was something Camron (Triton Head Coach Cameron Toma) felt needed to happen, “ said Lacher. “It had to happen for a number of reasons, some of which I will not go into. The main reason was we Read More
  • What A Difference a Season Makes: Andy Teeters +

    Andy Teeters is proving the age old adage that experience does make you better. The Tritons star SG/SF had his best season statistically (29.4ppg) which, no so coincidentally, came while he led the Tritons to their best season ever. “I was able to get my shots easier this season than in any other season before.”, said Teeters. “It just was a matter of me learning to use what I do best against whatever guy was guarding me. I just felt more familiar with the way teams tried to defend me than I had before.” Teeters “feeling more familiar…” was not something that just happened. For the first time in his career, Teeters decided that he could not just rely on Read More
  • What A Difference a Season Makes: Tritons Clinch AmCon East Title +

    The 2016 version of the Tampa Bay Tritons is as much different from the 2015 version on paper as it is with results on the court. The Tritons clinched their 3rd American East Division title in 6 seasons. They have tied the franchise record for wins, 54, with 2 games still to be played in the season. They will be the #2 seed in the OBWL’s American Conference, despite having the 3rd best overall record behind Anaheim and Kansas City. All this after a disaster of a 2015 season. Last season saw the Tampa Bay win only 44 games, 2nd lowest total since the inaugural season of the OBWL, and miss the playoffs for the 1st time. “It was just Read More
  • Teeters Explodes for 61 +

    Andy Teeters has had big scoring nights before. He has gone off for huge numbers in games throughout his career. Leading his team in scoring on any given not is not a surprise, in fact it is surprising when he doesn’t lead the Tritons in scoring in a game. However, nothing he had done in the past can be compared to the number Teeters put up last night in a Tampa Bay’s game against the visiting Minnesota Marauders. Teeters, th4 6’8” shooting guard in his 7th season out of Georgia Tech, was neary unstoppable. He scored OBWL record-tying 61 points. His stat line at the end read:24-36 from the floor (including 2-5 from 3) and 11-11 from the charity stripe. Read More
  • Tritons Deal Cruz +

    The Tampa Bay Tritons made another big, and some would argue, questionable move. SG Dario Cruz, the prize in the Aaron Schwartz deal last season to Denver, was traded back to the Demons, along with PF Joshua Davidson, in exchange for combo guard Juwan Cedeno and C Angel McGhee. The trade, coming on the heels of a deal that saw GM Tom Lacher deal away starting C Rueben Alexander and backup big man Kenny Balt, has seen the Tampa Bay deal 2 of it’s opening day starters (Cruz & Alexander) and their best rebounding and defensive big (Balt). Some critics are calling for the firing of the GM. “I have heard the talk,” said Lacher, “and it doesn’t bother me. Read More
