The fourth season of the United Basketball Alliance’s (UBA) Pro Basketball League will air live on Ten Sports network channels Ten 3 and Ten 1 HD from 16 February to 16 March.

The UBA Pro Basketball League will be played at the Satyabhama University, Chennai, from 16 February through 1 March, later moving into the semi-finals and Championship series in Goa from 10 to 16 March. The previous seasons of the league were held in Hyderabad and Pune.

The league is structured as eight teams play a regular season during competing to qualify for the playoffs. The teams are divided into two divisions and feature some of the country’s finest players: The Mumbai Challengers, Delhi Capitals, Haryana Gold and Punjab Steelers form the North Division, and the Chennai Slam, Pune Peshwas, Bengaluru Beast and Hyderabad Sky make up the South Division.
A new addition to the game this season is the introduction of 10 international professionals from the US to join current UBA players and teams. Following the completion of the league’s second Pro Performance Camp in Phoenix during December 2016, a group of 15 elite UBA players joined the American players, and together they underwent various team-building exercises, working on fundamentals, dribbling, defence techniques and shooting drills.

The international players will step into the UBA spotlight for the first time this February. At least one international American player will be added on each UBA team, creating stronger competition, performance and a unique experience for the fans of basketball across India.

The most experienced American player coming to India to play in UBA 4 is Alex Scales, who played with the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs. Scales was a star at the University of Oregon in the NCAA before launching his pro career, which includes two different NBA D-League teams and professional teams around the world in 11 different countries.

Another player joining Scales is an American player of Indian origin, Chris Solomon, who played college ball in Florida at Northwood University, then professionally in Italy and Mexico. The inclusion of these two stars is sure to raise the level and pace of the game. Other American players include Ron March, Pierre Newton, Tevin Kelly, Mak Boskailo, De’Sean Mattox, Jimmy Scroggins, Brendan Pineda-Morales and Dermaine Crockrell.

On announcing Season 4, UBA CEO Tommy Fisher said, “We are absolutely elated to raise the game of basketball in India for the fourth season of UBA. Our goal is to always improve in all aspects from the previous season. The past three seasons have shown significant growth and excitement, and we expect nothing less in Season 4. Basketball continues to gain popularity across India in a big way, and we are delighted to be associated with this movement in India. We look forward to seeing talented young players step up and showcase their exceptional skill and talent.”
