Minnesota Marauders Press Releases

  • Marauders Draft Ellender +

    The Minnesota Marauders entered the draft with the #5 pick overall, #19 pick overall and the #47 pick in the 2nd round. The front office along with the fans couldn't be happier with their first two picks. They received the #5 pick from the Portland Lumberjacks in the blockbuster trade a season ago. Everybody knew the Marauders wanted, PG Francis Ellender, out of Duke and their dreams came true as he fell to some pundits surprise. GM Jason Rouse commented..."We couldn't be happier with Ellender as PG was a major need for the team to say the least. We believe he can play right away but the big question will be can he be productive as the starter? A lot Read More
  • Marauders Magic +

    The Minnesota Marauders shocked almost everybody by making it as the #8 seed in the National conference. The team sat on a 24-30 record after being punched in the face at Anaheim 125-92 and the very next game blowing a 22 point halftime lead versus the Demons. The players got together in a players only meeting and the coaches did the very same thing. Ervin Holmes took charge and sources said he grabbed Stanley Bobo by the neck and slammed him against the wall. A mini melee broke out but no blood was shed and afterwards all the beefs were over with. Holmes commented..."As the leader in the locker room and on the court sometimes I need to take charge."Coach Read More
  • In the Hunt +

    The Minnesota Marauders are still in playoff contention after winning 4 straight games to bring their record to 38-40, good enough for a 8th place tie with the hated Boston Buzzards in the National conference. One fan commented..."No one likes Buzzards especially Pirates... Their ugly, they stink and you definitely don't want to see one flying overhead."A lot of chatter has come from their GM, Warnke, already claiming the 8th spot as their own with around 20 games to play. Apparently the rest of the playoff contenders should bow down and let the Buzzards run right over them. Minnesota made it 2-0 versus them this season with a 11 point victory a few nights ago. Big Ervin Holmes nearly missed Read More
  • Marauders Midway Report +

    The Minnesota Marauders come into the All-Star break at 23-24, good enough for a 7th place tie in the National Conference. This is a major surprise not only to the fans but many pundits throughout the league. As of right now it looks like 4 teams are battling it out for 2 playoffs spots. The schedule gets way tougher in the near future but gets slightly easier coming down the home stretch. I don't know if this team will make it or not but I do know, Coach Layne Hensley, will have the Marauders prepared and ready to go. Hensley, is in the last season of his contract and sources have told me that the front office wants to re-sign Read More
  • Mega Deal In Minnesota +

    Late last night the Portland Lumberjacks and Minnesota Marauders came to terms on a 9 player deal which included one first-round pick. The deal for the Marauders kick starts them into rebuild mode, but they still have enough talent to win games. GM Rouse focused on prospects that were more ready for the OBWL and not the OBDL. "This isn't going to be a full rebuild per se but more of a semi rebuild meaning the front office is still focusing on winning games while developing prospects at the same time." Let's take a closer look at the trade...Lumberjacks Get:Richard Burke IIBye-bye RB2 who spent just over one season with the team and now he's gone like the wind. It Read More
  • Free Agent Frenzy +

    The Minnesota Marauders went into free agency looking to build a winning team or at least a very competitive team. They signed a total of 5 players including re-signing last season's starting PG, Stanley Bobo. They did not have the cap space to go after one big name because there are so many holes that the front office needed to fill. That being said, they did go after combo guard, Frank Williams, but decided to go another direction after his demands were too high and wouldn't be in the team's best interest long-term. The front office including 1st year GM Jason Rouse did a decent job filling the roster and time will only tell if he made the right calls. Read More
  • From Rags to Riches +

    The Minnesota Marauders entered the draft with very high expectations owning the #3, #33 and #40 picks overall. This would mark the very first draft under General Manager Jason Rouse and his new staff.  Fans and pundits were very nervous not knowing exactly what direction this new front office would take them. At #3, they went with the most talented player and selected, SF Andrew Evans, a Freshman out of Penn State. The 6'5" offensive machine barely saw action in college averaging just over 10 minutes per game, but had rave reviews during private workouts. Some pundits are very skeptical that he will succeed in the OBWL as he lacks defense and ball handling skills. Drew spoke to the media Read More
  • Marauders Mix Things Up +

    The Minnesota Marauders shook things up this off-season by changing General Managers and hired, Jason Rouse, former GM of the Iowa Stalkers out of the D League. Many pundits and fans are very unhappy with this hiring including me, what the heck has this guy done to deserve a prestigious GM job in the premier basketball league in the world?  Absolutely nothing. Some fans are protesting by not renewing their season tickets and others are taken a wait-and-see approach. Owner Richard White, has stressed to the city of Minneapolis to hold out on their opinions and to give Rouse a season or two before coming to such a quick judgment. "I have 100% confidence that he will lead this team Read More
  • Marauders Win Thriller in Kentucky +

    The Minnesota Marauders have pulled off a thrilling one point overtime win against their arch rivals Kentucky Stallions. Superstar Andrew Bordo went scoreles in the first quarter after getting himself into foul trouble early in the first quarter but was more than pleased to walk out of the Horseland Center leading all scorers with 36 points and win. "It always feels great leaving this stadium with a win. It' a prime-time event, all eyes are on us so to leave here with a big win is great for our fans and our organisation" said Bordo courtside after the game. The Marauders were 18 points down when Bordo re-entered the game with 10 minutes left of the second quarter. Bordo instanty Read More
  • Marauder War Chest Spent Wisely +

    The Minnesota Marauders have pulled off a memorable off-season for all the right reasons. Passed off-seasons have been a nightmare for Minnesota in recent memory with massive budget cuts, power struggles, player desertions and wild accusations making the papers. The 2023 season started in far different fashion. Rather than meeting with rival owners and returning to Australian beaches to contemplate his own future in management GM Steve Gibson stayed in Minnesota and put himself and his staff to work tirelessly around the clock. As a result things already look different than they ever have. This is not a long bonded Minnesota team that management hoped would finally click. Minnesota finally got torn apart and the results are showing promise in Read More
