Shreveport-Bossier City Mavericks top the ABA Power Rankings

For Immediate Release:
January 20, 2014

The Shreveport-Bossier City Mavericks are celebrating their latest victory this morning with the release of the American Basketball Association (ABA) Power Rankings for the week ending January 19.

For the first time this season, the Mavericks are ranked the #1 team in the ABA, according to Joe Newman, ABA chief executive officer.

"Power rankings are determined by a number of factors, including won-loss records, number of games, difficulty of schedule,” said Newman.

With Saturday’s win over the Mobile Bay Tornadoes, the Mavericks took control of the coveted top slot from the Jacksonville Giants, who suffered an overtime loss to the South Florida Gold early last week. Jacksonville slipped into the #2 slot, followed by the Richmond Elite and the Arizona Scorpions.

“The #1 ranking has been our goal since the season’s opener on November 9,” said Steve Tucker, Mavericks’ president and head coach. “With nearly 90 professional teams competing in the ABA, it’s an accomplishment to be in the rankings, but it’s a triumph to be #1.”

Undefeated and undeterred, the 16-0 Mavericks have home court advantage against the DFW Stars this coming Thursday, January 23. Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. at the historic Hirsch Coliseum.
