PRINCETON: Season Preview

By Phil Jackson | Princeton League Coordinator

It's been quite an interesting journey but we are ready for our first-ever season in Princeton! The fall season will be a great opportunity for players to establish their mark for seasons to come, and put themselves on notice. We have quite a landscape of great talent and a good mix of players from all backgrounds and ages. 

We are gifted with four awesome teams in the Princeton Pelicans, Life Time Lakers, The Fundamentals, and the Princeton Generals. The Fundamentals were awarded the first pick ever in the Princeton Ultimate Hoops League Draft. 

Teams captains: Bryan Wilson, Kosty Yablon, Marcus Lotierzo, and Michael Montella aim to lead their teams to raising the championship banner at the end of the season. 

The pickup basketball scene at the Princeton club has been very competitive with full teams of five waiting and ready to take on the previous games winners. This competitive nature will surely carry over into the league as it continues to grow. 

The fall league will shape future seasons and is expected to grow the buzz in the Princeton community. Players have already been chattering about the possibility of raising a banner with their name and team name on it at the end of the season. 

Who will come out on top?
