Game 7, Pence Out

Written by

The South Florida Sharks took game 6 outscoring the Marauders 117-113, evening this series up at 3-3 which sets up a game 7 showdown in Minneapolis. It's been one heck of a series with plenty of offense for both teams entertaining fans throughout the OBWL world. The Sharks have won all 3 games by 8 points or less continuing their streak versus the Marauders during the season winning close games. The Marauders are very young and need to find a way to win these games late in the 4th quarter. It's not going to be easy for them in game 7 as Tony "Big Show" Pence is out for the remainder of the series with patellar tendanitis and will miss approximately 2 weeks of action.

Fans and teammates have grown to absolutely love, Pence, who just recently signed an extension for $72,480,248 over 4 years. They call him the "Big Show" as he tends to have his biggest games when the team needs him most. Also, he's the best big man passer in the game and entertains fans nightly on his highlight reel passes and his craftiness down low making defenders look silly. He was having a monster series averaging 21.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game while shooting 48%. He also got to the line for 47 free-throw attempts so far in the series which by far leads the team. The big question is can this team win without one of their Big 3 members? Coach Dallas Todd spoke...

"Everyone's moping around here like somebody died and we got a game 7 to play. We have one game at home to move on the 2nd round and that's got 100% of my focus and not the injury to Pence.  Yeah it sucks that he's out but that's basketball for you, not everything is going to go your way all the time. It's time for the bench to step up as we desperately need them to contribute. I have 100% confidence in this team and if we play like one we'll move on to the next round."

Division up for Grabs

Written by

With just 4 games to play in the season the Minnesota Marauders find themselves just a half game ahead of the Honolulu Inferno for the division title. With 4 losses they could find themselves as low as a #7 seed so these last 4 games are huge and it won't be easy.

Pioneers
Thunderbirds
Huskies
at Inferno

Not one easy game left so they better be bringing their A game or else they'll find themselves on the road the opening round of the playoffs. The final game of the season is at the Inferno which could decide the division but the Marauders have the harder schedule left between the 2 teams. The Inferno have lost 6 straight games which has put this team back in the driver seat for now but no one expects Honolulu to keep losing.

It's been a major struggle the 2nd half of the season for the Marauders who are under .500 after their torrid start to the season. The defense has really under performed of late and to shake things up coach Dallas Todd made a lineup change. He brought big man Ronald long off the bench to start at PF, moved Tony Pence to SF and now Joey Short is coming off the bench to backup the SG/SF positions. The team is 4-3 with the new lineup so far and the verdict is still out if this move will improve the team.

It will be a major disappointment if this team can't at the very least hold onto the #4 seed. Last season, they snuck into the playoffs through the backdoor on the final night of the regular season to grab the #8 seed. Can this team create some magic these last 4 games?

The keys to success are simple... Andrew Lawler needs to show up every game to give the team an outside threat. Need to hit their free throws which has been a struggle the entire season. Protect the rim on defense as they've been given up way too many easy layups. So, if those 3 areas are checkmarked after every game there's a good chance you'll see a W in the box score.

So far so Good

Written by

It's been a great start to the season so far for the Minnesota Marauders who are
leading the division by 1 game over the Inferno.  They've been a huge surprise to
the entire league & also to the pundits who had them penciled in at 4th place in
the division. You can call them road warriors where they have gone 12-2 compared
to only 9-4 at home. Fans that gave up on the franchise before GM Rouse took over
are coming back to see this young team ball. Rouse spoke...


"It's still early in the season so nothing has been accomplished at all. We have
53 games on the schedule & if the team relaxes now we'll drop fast in the uber
talented National Conference. Head Coach Dallas Todd deserves a lot of the credit
by changing up the offense to run run run."

The Marauders lead the league in ppg at 110 while shooting almost 40% from 3
which also is tops in the league. Last season the team was in the bottom 3 so a
giant improvement to say the least. SG Andrew Lawler is hitting a scorching 53%
which is higher than his FG% at 51%. He's having a breakout year to say the least
& we should see him at All-Star weekend where he'll most likely be in the 3 point
contest.

Rookie PG Francis Ellender has been a great addition filling a major hole &
excelling so far this young season. He's already collected 2 Rookie of the Month
awards and more are expected throughout the season. He's averaging
14ppg/7.4apg/4rpb & his early season struggles shooting the ball seems to be over
with. He leads the team playing nearly 40mpg so will he break down later in the
season?

Almost everyone on the team is shooting a career high so a lot of that credit
goes to Coach & his up tempo offense. Hopefully this will last but with a young
team you just don't know if they'll keep up the consistency that you need
throughout an entire season. Now the new year brings higher expectations and
we'll find out if their the real deal or a flash in the pan.

Take 2

Written by

The Minnesota Marauders are ready to kick off their 2nd season with GM Jason Rouse under the helm. Last year they shocked the OBWL world by making the playoffs via the tiebreaker on the final day of the season. This season expectations have grown exponentially as fans expect them to make the playoffs and some even believe they will compete for the division. This team is still super young and a playoff spot is not guaranteed so it will be interesting to see this team's progression. The Marauders brings back 10 players from a year ago along with a couple veterans in free agency and 3 players out of the draft. Let's take a look at the projected starting 5...

C   Ervin Holmes---28
PF Tony Pence---26
SF Joey Short---26
SG Andrew Lawler---25
PG Frankie "Don't call me Francis" Ellender---20

Holmes is coming off of a career year and has taken over the leadership role in the locker room and on the court. He made his first All-Star appearance, took home his 3rd all defensive team award and made the 3rd string all-league team. Pence, at the young age of 26 is looking to go to the next level with his game. He shot 53% from the field during the preseason but you have to take that with a grain of salt as you play against a lot of rookies or backups. The next man up is Mr. Joey Short who's athleticism has made him a dangerous player and draws a ton of fouls taking the ball to the hoop. Pence has a similar game but the downfall of those 2 is terrible free throw shooting which can give the coach fits throughout the season.

SG Lawler at the young age of 25 will step into a starting role for the first time in Minnesota. He's key to our success as we struggle from the outside and he's by far the best in that department. Sources have explained to me that they are having a tough time getting him to be more selfish and launch more shots. Finally, we got the #5 overall pick in PG Ellender and he looks like he can definitely run this team as a starter. He had a solid preseason and add in his defense it easily makes him a starter. We are very thin at the PG position so hopefully he can stay healthy throughout the season. Let's take a look at the 2nd team...

C   Ronald Long---32
PF Weisman---21
SF Andrew Evans---19
SG George Ellis---31
PG Hollis Warren---33

The big surprise is the #19 pick overall slides into the 2nd team for now as he had a great preseason. Evans is a wildcard as he is very productive on the offensive side of things but defense he's basically nonexistent. As he grows older his offense should outweigh his lack of defense. C Long comes back to Minnesota where the fans have booed him mercilessly for leaving them high and dry in free agency in 2020. Ellis will be by far the best production off of the bench as he could score in bunches and plays solid defense. The rest...

C   Wallace Briseno
SF Dirk Kendall
PG Dorian Geis
PG Albert Mitchell
SG Simon Barrier

Out of this group Briseno is the only one that gets playing time and the coaching staff needs to find a way to get him more minutes. Kendall in his 2nd year is asking for a trade as he's good enough to come off the bench for most teams.

It's really hard to predict what this team will or will not do this upcoming season. Yes, they did make the playoffs a season ago but they barely got in as they needed a tiebreaker to advance. They are super young still so can they be consistent throughout the season? The fact that they made the playoffs a year ago with basically the same team and talent wise have improved, I believe they can get as high as a #5 seed if they can stay healthy. Should be a very exciting season to say the least and hopefully the Marauders can improve on last year's 42 win season.

Marauders Draft Ellender

Written by

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 of upside but also a few things he needs to work on, especially his quickness as we would like for him to be a little more explosive with that first step."

At #19 the front office was looking for a post player and they found one that can contribute immediately. They had no backup for PF Tony Pence but now that problem has been fixed. The team selected PF Darwin Weisman out of Northwestern who will be a perfect fit for the Marauders. Physically he's a menace down low and will be able to rebound with the best of them. He looks to not have any major weaknesses and is average in most categories. Rouse spoke...

"We definitely had our eyes on him leading up to the draft and very happy to land him at #19. We also expect him to jump in and play right away backing up Pence at PF. We will definitely be working with him during camps to get his post defense improved."

With their 2nd round pick at #47 the team selected SG Simon Barrier out of Indiana. He will definitely be started out playing in the D league and is a long shot to make this team in the future. The team picks up 2 players that are already chalked into their 10 man rotation which usually doesn't happen coming out of the draft. Overall I give this draft an A as the team picked up 2 quality prospects and 2 players that can contribute right away.

Marauders Magic

Written by

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 Layne Hensley and staff came up with a new game plan and shuffled the rotations to mix things up. After that the team caught on fire winning 15 of their next 18 games propelling them to the #6 seed. Now everybody expected them to make the playoffs and major pressure was put on the young team. They folded like a tent losing 5 of 6 and found themselves on the outside looking in. They needed to win their last 2 games and either the Boston Buzzards needed to lose their last 2 games or the Vancouver Highlanders needed to beat the South Florida Sharks. The latter scenario came true and the Marauders make the playoffs on a 3 team tiebreaker rule, leaving the Buzzards out and the Highlanders in.

Up next, the uber talented London Knights who many think will take home the OBWL championship this season. Minnesota was swept during the regular season but players are upbeat and ready for the big challenge ahead. Talent wise the Knights reign supreme but the Marauders are known for their hustle and never given up despite the score. Many fans have taken the trip across the pond to London to catch the first 2 games, as it's been a long time since they made the playoffs. One thing is for sure that it will be a complete madhouse when the series comes home to Minny.

In the Hunt

Written by

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 a triple-double scoring 12 points, grabbed 15 rebounds, and swatted 9 shots.  GM Rouse spoke...

"I'm not worried about what's going on with Boston the only thing I can control is our teams atmosphere. Coach Hensley, has done an outstanding job keeping the team focused and not worried about outside noise. We are a very young team but I still think we have the talent to make the playoffs."

The Highlanders are still in the race and are 2 games behind both teams while it looks like the Sharks are running away with at least a 7th seed.  With 22 games to go the Marauders play 11 at home and 11 on the road while the Buzzards have a split at 11/11 and the Highlanders have a 10/12 split playing 1 extra game on the road. Boston hosts Seattle and Minnesota hosts Toronto so advantage Buzzards before the big big showdown March 8th in Boston.  The 2 teams play in Minneapolis March 26 for the final meeting. These are not must win games but to go down 2 games with 20 to go isn't ideal. Coach Hensley disagreed...

"Hey, there's 22 games left in the season not 2 so I'm not worried about some showdown over in the Northeast somewhere."

The coaching staff has changed up not only the depth charts but the game plan as well leading to a 4-1 record, with the only loss a 22 point half time blown lead versus Denver. Also, the long-awaited debut of, Andrew Evans, has come and gone where he's coming off the bench at SF averaging around 10 minutes per game. He's just trying to fit somewhere in the offense and so far so good, shooting 8/16 from the field, 5/5 from the line and having a +14 on court differential in just 5 games.

Marauders Midway Report

Written by

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 him this upcoming off-season. Let's take a look at the starting 5 and how they have fared so far this season.


Ervin Holmes

He's definitely the rock of the team and does a lot of the dirty work by playing D, rebounding and blocking shots. He ranks 2nd in blocks at 5 per game, 4th in rebounds at 11.3 per game and 15th in field-goal percentage shooting just over 50%. He finally got rewarded by making his 1st ever All-Star team as a reserve. In 34 minutes of action he scored 12 points, grabbed 6 boards and blocked 5 shots as the team won the game by 33 points.

"It feels great to be recognized as one of the league's best players and finally realizing all that work has really paid off. I had a blast out there playing with the league's cream of the crop and hopefully I can do it next season too. Now it's time to lead the Marauders to the playoffs."


Tony Pence

The 26-year-old has energized the team since coming over from the Lumberjacks in a trade. He's had 2 triple doubles so far and is tied for 2nd with Joey Short averaging 16.3 points per game.  It's just a matter of time before he passes George Ellis who averages 16.7 per game. He's averaged 17.55 per game as a Marauder, but the one criticism is that he needs to be more consistent.  The front office loves this guy and look for them to throw a big number at him in 2026 when his contract is up.

"I've been asked to do a lot more here in Minnesota but I'm up to the challenge. Coach wants the offense to run through me at times so I've been working very hard at that."


Joey Short

Definitely a breakout year for him and first year starting every game and having major success. Being hamstrung by the Americans front office he can finally let loose and let his game do the talking. Last season, he only averaged 12.7 minutes per game and now that's up to nearly 30 minutes per game. He's averaging 16.3 points per game while shooting over 46% compared to just over 6 points per game a year ago. His game is taking the ball to the rack but needs to work on his outside game if he wants to take it to the next level.

"It was a complete nightmare playing in Philadelphia for GM Jay Amado. I was promised more playing time along with other promises and not one was delivered. I'm so glad to be out of there and thankful for, GM Rouse, who's delivered on his promises and not having to worry about being traded every day."


George Ellis

He has struggled a bit after suffering a knee injury earlier in the season and the fact that he's getting less shots with Pence in the starting lineup. That being said he still averages 16.7 points per game in under 28 minutes per game. This is also a career-high as he's a full-time starter for the first time in his career. A huge bargain at $3 million per season and the team has an option next season to bring him back if necessary.

"I love being here in Minnesota and finally getting a chance to start. I really want to make the playoffs because at age 30 you just don't know how many more chances you'll get."


Stanley Bobo

He's been ripped apart by many pundits basically saying he's complete garbage. All of his shooting and scoring numbers have all went down but at least he can still pass the ball with a 3.10 assists/turnover ratio. His team option for next season has been declined and now he must prove to other GM's around the league that he's worth a contract next season.

"I'm beyond disappointed but the team didn't pick up my option and I completely understand why. I'm just having an off year so far and need to find a way to grind through the rest of the season."


Key Bench Players


Andrew Lawler

He has become the team's only 3-point assassin coming off the bench at SG as the team ranks dead last in 3-point percentage. He's made the All-Star Sophomore rising stars game shooting just over 41% from behind the arc and plays stellar outside defense. It was a major struggle going 1 for 6 scoring just 7 points, grabbing 2 rebounds and dishing out 2 assists in 15 minutes of action. He has 3 years left on his rookie contract and the front office have shown signs that they would like to keep him long-term.

"I'm not going to lie I would really like to start, but seeing veteran George Ellis out there I completely understand. I've been told next season that SG will be an open competition so this off-season I'll be working extra hard"


Mustafa Ranby

A career D leaguer, GM Rouse, finally gave him a shot in the big show and it has paid off. In just under 19 minutes per game he averages 10.7 points and grabs 4.8 rebounds while shooting just over 48 %. Just imagine if he actually got starters minutes what he could do for this team, but the lack of defense is why he doesn't. He's asking for a contract extension at 4 years/$13 million, but as of right now the front office isn't talking contracts extensions until towards the end of the season.

"This has been a dream come true and I would like to thank, Rouse, for giving me that chance. I think I've proven to myself and the rest of the league that I belong here."


Andrew Evans (D league)

The teams #3 overall pick has surprisingly spent the entire season down in the D league. Not a very popular decision with the fans and pundits throughout the league. According to the front office they would rather have him starting down there other than getting a couple minutes per game here and there in the OBWL. He will definitely be on the roster next season so he will be one and done with the D league. In just over 33 minutes per game he's averaging 20 points while shooting just under 48% from the field and 88% from the free-throw line. He's been struggling from behind the arc at 29% but excels at getting to the line which he has 320 free-throw attempts. He's been player of the month 3 times and is showing that he belongs in the big show. Also, won the D league's dunk contest and made both the All-Star team and Rookies versus Sophomores game.  He could not be reached for comment.

Mega Deal In Minnesota

Written by

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 II

Bye-bye RB2 who spent just over one season with the team and now he's gone like the wind.  It was the right time for him to get traded as he's still in his prime and putting up big numbers nightly. The team realized they would at best be a .500 team and they would be better off trading him for prospects and picks.  Also, it frees up cap space for the 2026 and 2027 seasons when the majority of the team will need to be re-signed. Good luck in Portland and you will be missed.

Irving Silas

The 2022 #13 pick overall will now get a team that looks forward to having him in the future. He's improved this year and has shown glimpses of a scoring machine. With Andrew Evans waiting in the wings and both having similar game, it was the right move to make at this current time. That being said I think he will turn into a solid starter for the Lumberjacks in the future.

Isaac Lafollette

He was demanding a trade and ruining team chemistry by causing scenes in the locker room pre and postgame that would carry onto the court. The Lumberjacks get an expiring salary and a diva to say the least.

Michael Florio

A last-minute addition to the trade as the Marauders had a plethora of point guards on the roster with the coming trade. He was a second-round pick in this season's draft.

Marauders Get:

Tony Pence

He will try to replace RB2 which is impossible but he can help to get some of that production back. At the young age of 25 he looks to be a keeper for the Marauders. He's signed throughout next season at the small rate of $3 million and hopefully he will want to sign a contract extension or the team might have to go after him in free agency. He could possibly be the best passing PF in the league and now is the best passer on the team with Stanley Bobo following close behind.

Albert Mitchell

Mitchell was needed in the deal for salary purposes and is signed through next season at $10 million per. He can't really shoot but does about everything else above average so he will move into the backup point guard position for now.

Dorian Geis

The front office have had their eyes on him since this off-season and are very happy to get him even though his game is not up to par this season. It seems like he took a step backwards from last season but he's young and still has plenty of time to develop. The team really can see him as their starting PG in the future but he must work on his game. As of right now he's 3rd string PG/SG and could see time at backup PG if Mitchell fails to perform.

Andrew Lawler

The front office absolutely loves this prospect as he's a three-point assassin which the team desperately needs. That being said he's in a huge slump from behind the arc but hopefully a new offense and change of scenery will help things out.  On top of that he's a hell of a defender on the perimeter and can handle the ball. The team can see a Evans/Lawler combo at SG in the near future, as of now expect Lawler to backup Ellis at SG.

Terrance Latimer

Very athletic but lacks in the skills department  and will be sent down to the D league to help them develop. His contract is up at end of season and it's very iffy if they will go after him in free agency.

Lumberjacks 2025 1st rounder

Everybody loves first-round picks and only time will tell if it will be a top 10 pick or not. Add this to the Marauders first-round pick next season and it could possibly be a breakout draft for the team.


Time will only tell if this was a good trade for the team but as of right now the front office and fans are very happy. The big problem now is how to get everybody playing time without more players demanding a trade. I guess if that's the worst problem they got then they will be just fine. Game on!

Free Agent Frenzy

Written by

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. Let's take a look at the newcomers starting with the re-signing of Stanley Bobo.

After a breakout year the former #9 overall pick by the Americans in the 2020 draft, he decided to stay put for at least another season. He signed a 2-year deal worth just under $14,500,000 with the 2nd year being a team option. The 25-year-old started 75 games a year ago and averaged 12.2ppg, 6.9apg and 3.3rpg, while shooting just over 43% from the field and having a 2.84 assists to turnover ratio. He's still developing and the team has high hopes that he can lead this team into the playoffs. This will be his 5th full season in the league and a make or break for him as the team holds his future heading into next year's off-season. Rouse commented…

"We really need Stanley to step it up to the next level after showing the league that he can be a everyday starter at PG. Everybody knows about his struggles on defense so we hope he works hard during training camps to improve in that department. On offense, he's a pure passer and can knock down the jumpshot so I'm not too worried about his offensive production. Let's just hope that he can stay healthy as PG's in this league are very hard to find."

Next up, the team signed 24-year-old SG Joey Short to a similar contract as Bobo's, 2 years worth just over $14,300,000 with the 2nd year being a team option. He also makes his way over from the Americans where he came off the bench averaging just over 12 minutes per game. His numbers weren't the greatest due to lack of playing time, but that should change here in Minnesota. At 6'4" and 208 he's an athletic freak of nature, and sources have mentioned that he might be starting at SF. GM Rouse, couldn't stop talking about this kid and can't wait to see him on the court. Rouse spoke…

"I absolutely love the potential of Joey and believe he'll show the league that he can be a definite starter if given the opportunity. Athletic freak was the first thing that came to mind when watching film on him. He's built like a rock at 6'4" and can jump out of the gym along with a killer crossover that leaves defenders on the floor. We believe he can play at SF and that he would be a matchup nightmare on the offensive side of the ball. Defensively he's above average and with his athleticism that even makes him better. Excited to see what he can do to help turn this franchise around."

The team's 3rd signing is yet another frontcourt player, SG George Ellis, who comes over from the Sharks just like Short. He's the definition of a journeyman as the 30-year-old is now playing with his 6th team in 7 years. As of now he will most likely be the Marauders starting SG. Defensively he's well above average and offensively he can put up some points as he averaged 13.5 in just 20 minutes per game with the Sharks a year ago. He signed a 2-year deal worth around $6,250,000 with the 2nd year being a team option.  Rouse commented…

"An absolute bargain and we are thankful that he signed for a very reasonable amount of money. We know he wants to start as his career has been mostly coming off of the bench, and it looks like he may get his wish. The fact that he can play defense at a position where you really need defense will most likely put him in the starting lineup. Plus, he brings much needed veteran leadership to a very young team."

With their 4th signing the Marauders signed 29-year-old Charles Mentor who comes over from the Snipers where he played his last 3 seasons. He signed a 2 year deal worth just around $8,000,000 and like the other signings the 2nd year will be a team option. He will most likely come off the bench and play at the SF position and possibly at PF, but he lacks the size at 6'6". His strong points are post defense and rebounding while his weaknesses are his athleticism along with being offensively challenged. Rouse spoke…

"We brought Charles in to solidify our bench by given us quality minutes throughout the season. He's not going to put up big numbers but does the dirty things like playing defense and rebounding."

With their 5th and final signing the team went after D league star Mustafa Ranby who has only played 30 games in the OBWL, averaging 5.9 minutes in 2019 with the Sea Dogs. He put up huge numbers for the Stallions affiliate scoring 19.5ppg and grabbing 8.3rpg. He was named all-league 1st team and named to the All-Star team a year ago as he had a breakout season. The team needed another scoring option down low and believe, Ranby, will fill that at a bargain price of $850,000 over one season. Rouse commented…

"I had my eye on this kid all last season down in the D league and I'm very happy that we can help him live out his dreams here in the OBWL. We know it's not going to be an easy transition but believe that he can give us a nice scoring punch off of the bench. He really deserves a chance to prove that he can play with the big boys and hopefully our coaching staff will get him ready to do so."

The roster is officially set going into training camp at 14 players and every starting position is up for grabs. Rouse, looks to be going after very athletic players who can fine tune their skills working with the coaching staff. The big question is will this team be better than last year's squad? It will be very hard to be any worse and it looks like this new front office is putting winning first and foremost. The team will not be playing for a draft pick and their goals according to sources is to hit the .500 mark and make it to the playoffs. On to training camps…
