After 2 seasons in the American Basketball Association (ABA), the Kentucky Enforcers have decided to start their 3rd season as members of the North American Basketball League (NABL). When asked about the change, co-owner and general manager Josh Avery said, "we learned a lot and have enjoyed our first 2 seasons with the ABA and it was an honor to be apart of the historic league, but we felt as an organization this move was necessary to continue to grow". In addition to a new league, the team is also looking to call Kentucky home after spending the first 2 years across the river at Cincinnati Christian University. According to the organization, the team will be announcing a new venue once the contract is finalized.
"We are very excited about the upcoming season", says Dustin Driskell co-owner and head coach of the Enforcers. "We saw much success on the floor in the ABA but we were unable to bring home a championship. We look forward to the challenges that the NABL and it's players hold for us." Last season the Enforcers went undefeated in the regular season but fell in the Final 8 tournament in Austin, TX. The Enforcers held a signing day on Saturday, November 10, and introduced the new faces to a crowd of friends, family and fans. With only a handful of returning players, the new look Enforcers look to use their athleticism to their advantage beginning in March 2019.
