Indiana Invaders Press Releases

  • What A Difference A Year Makes +

    Indianapolis, Indiana> Comparing this offseason to last offseason for the Invaders is a bit like comparing the excitement of your first skydiving adventure compared to a trip to your local library when they were still using the Dewey decimal system. Last season you saw the Invaders tear the hold thing to the ground, with Hall and Lynwood testing free agency, the team stepped to the plate and swung for the fences. Jettisoned were SF Richard Sturgeon who sent sent to the Americans for PG Stanley Bobo for pennies on the dollar and gone was PF Wayne Eatmon who was send packing in exchange for nothing of significance but salary relief.. well and I suppose we should mention the #56 overall Read More
  • Invaders lock up #3 seed +

    Indianapolis, Indiana> The battle for home court in the American Conference had been hotly contested throughout the season with the Archers, Dragoons, Blackjacks, Sun Kings and Invaders constantly jockeying for position, so it should come as no surprise that home court was decided on the final days of the regular season. The Invaders headed into their final 2 games of the year with a simple forum, win one of those games and you secure home court. Of course the Invaders played 10 of their last 11 games on the road so when they lost the first game of the final 2, a 113-100 decision on the road vs the SeaDogs, there was some concern. However the next night the team Read More
  • Invaders a Buyer at Trade Deadline +

    Indianapolis, Indiana> Much like draft day when the Invaders made 2 unexpected moves with the SeaDogs and the Inferno, the Invaders made a move that seemingly came out of left field striking a deal with the Philadelphia Americans to bring in Leif Buyer. "We probably made you guys a much cleaner headline than the laughable "Vitamin D" awfulness that came out of the Boston GMs piehole. Jesus that was so cringe worthy i'm still reeling about it." said the Invaders GM Reid. When the topic got the the trade itself, Reid was also critical of other GMs in the league. "Hard to do business when you reach out to certain team's GMs and you do not get a reply. Easy Read More
  • Hall Gets Call to Start AS Game +

    Indiana, Indianapolis> Cleveland Hall was recognized for his strong 1st half performance with the chance to start the all star game for the AmCon squad. The SG position has been a tough position in recent years with the amount of depth in the conference and with traditional SF types sliding down to the SG role to create matchup issues. Hall who has been a perennial MVP candidate for several years including scoring titles in 2017 and 2018 offers a unique ability to outscore almost anyone at the position while also rebounding like a power forward all while having the ability to play 48 minutes a night. Hall saw 24 minutes in the allstar game this year getting 16 points on Read More
  • 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
