New pro basketball league to debut in spring

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE (AP) - Attention basketball fans: A new professional basketball league is making its debut this year.

The Central Basketball Association is scheduled to play its first games on March 1.

The CBA will include seven teams, with additional teams to join in 2015.

The focus of the CBA will be to give players the exposure they need to build their resumes and possibly make an International NBA D-League or even NBA roster.

The first seven teams are: the Bowling Green (Ky.) Hornets, Chattanooga Rail Runners, Fort Wayne (Ind.) Flite, Memphis Soul Kings, Middle Tennessee Storm, River City Panthers, and the Saint Louis Hawks.

Additional teams for 2015 will be in Chicago; Columbus, Ohio; Lexington, Ky.; and South Bend, Ind.
