IMPERIALS WIN EXHIBITION GAME! October 29, 2006 Boca Raton, Florida: The Palm Beach Imperials of the American Basketball Association (ABA) played host to Swish Hoops out of Miami in an exciting afternoon scrimmage game at Florida Atlantic University today. With the score tied 30 to 30 at the end of the first quarter, the Imperials jacked up a team total 128 points including an extra 11 points thanks to the ABA marquee 3-D Rule. This unique ABA rule enables a team to score an extra point whenever the ball is stolen in the backcourt. It’s this rule that Coach Carr is counting on to score his stated goal of 200-points this season.
Carl Jenkins led the Imperials with 21 points and 9 rebounds hitting his first 3-point shots. Other top performers for the Imperials were former Florida Pit Bull, Bobby St-Preux, who scored 19 points and newcomer Raphael Morris from Chicago/Venezuela who tossed in 20 points. Standout, Lamar Moore, former FAU baler had 10 points. Moore and St-Preux just finished a national Gatorade commercial with the Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade. Look for the commercial this season.
Swish Hoops were led by Mark Augustin who scored 30 points making 12 out 19 free throws. Cory Lewis made 9 of 13 from the charity stripe for a total of 15 points. The Hoops team shot 70% from the line, making only one three pointer, while the Imperials made 13 3-pointers but shot dismal 52% from the line.For more information contact Imperials GM Lamont Carr at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.palmbeachimperials.com or the ABA website at www.abalive.com.
