LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Oct. 26, 2016 - Amzeal -- The 2015-2016 American Basketball Season was the initial year of a multi-season broadcast contract with Sports Radio America that attracted tens of thousands of listeners tuning into the "ABA on SRA Game of the Week." This year, listenership is projected to double as the 50th anniversary season of the ABA introduces a few special storylines.

Tim Thomas' return to the professional basketball court will be electric. Thomas, a former NBA standout, will play for his own Jersey Express franchise, immediately putting last year's ABA champions, the Jacksonville Giants, at a disadvantage to repeat for the crown.

'We're excited and extremely honored to be chosen as a 'Game of the Week' in this historic, 50th-year Anniversary of the ABA," said Marsha Blount, Joint Owner of Jersey Express Basketball. "Sports Radio America has been an amazing partner to the Jersey Express and the ABA. I look forward to the best season yet!"

Additionally, former NBA legend Harvey Grant takes the coaching reigns of the Virginia Storm. Will this "Blue Chip" coaching addition increase Virginia's chance of knocking off the reigning division champion DMV Warriors in the increasingly competitive Mid-Atlantic Division?

Speaking of movies, could 'Hoop Dreams' movie-star-turned-basketball-coach William Gates lead his Laredo Swarm franchise back to the ABA Final 8 hosted in Baltimore this year? One team likely to be waiting on them will be the Baltimore Hawks.

"On behalf of the Baltimore Hawks, we would like to thank Sports Radio America for considering us for the 'ABA Game of the Week' so early in the season," said Quentin Harper, Vice President of the Baltimore Hawks. "We're very excited for the ABA's 50th anniversary and will be following all of the action nowhere else but Sports Radio America."
