A Day Made For Allstar!

Columbus, Ga- What a Finals weekend we had! No finals is complete without the Allstars from around the league teaming up as teammates instead of opponents. From all of the competitions to the game itself, we had a ball. This day was filled with laughter, challenges, and alot of joking around between Commissioner Culliver and players as everyone was able to relax and just enjoy themselves for one day without any pressure.

The Allstar day started off with competitions. The day belonged to Alquan Mendenhall as he almost swept the competitions winning the 3 point, midrange and skills competitions. Had he been a few inches taller, he may have tried to give Denzel McDuffey, winner of the Slam Dunk competition a run for his money…

Now we get into the Allstar game, it was a thriller. This game was decided by 1 point 141-140. The Blue Allstars were the winners lead by Allstar Coach Adrianna Walker. Allstar MVP went to Vipers guard Zytavian Hill with 28 Points, who was followed close behind by Lancaster Thunder’s Daniel Pachec 26 points and Sean Rogers Jr with 24 points. The Red Allstars were led by Vipers Alquan Mendenhall who caught fire scoring 44 points of which 12 were from behind the arc, exhibiting why he’s known as the 3 Ball King. It was Lancaster’s Solomon Muhamad with 23 points and Vipers Cortez Chaney’s 22 points that assisted in making this game one that went to the final buzzer!!

USA 🇺🇸 ~ 📢📢📢 BIG ANNOUNCEMENT ‼️‼️

We now interrupt your regularly scheduled broadcast for this special announcement from the PBA by A&T Sports.

The Fall Winter Season Regular season is just weeks away from concluding, with the playoffs set to begin March 28-31, 2024. After crowning, Fall-Winter Season National Champions, the PBA by A&T Sports will transition into its Summer Season.

PBA By A&T Sports announces that it will go back to its original format of playing Summers Only. Starting with the Summer 2024 season. Although Commissioner Culliver states that the Winters have been exciting, the PBA was originally put in place to give those athletes who play abroad and in winter leagues here in the states, a way to stay active and get 16 category box scores, professional film for highlights, an updated US Basket and keep their resumes current without large gaps in on the court playing time.

Reverting the league back to its original format affords players and teams the opportunity to stay active as well as compete at a different and diverse level of play. The PBA’s mission is not to compete with other leagues but to provide athletes another forum of exposure while building strength, character, discipline and skill level along side competitive levels of play by way of combines, training camps and a summer season!

Thanks for all of your continued support!

Commissioner Angela Culliver ❤️
