TEAM TROUBLE SURGES PAST THE KINGS

TEAM TROUBLE SURGES PAST THE KINGS

STOCKTON, CA- Explosive game by Team Trouble leads the team past the San Diego Kings 132-88.  

The teams breakout began in the second quarter and only took off, as the team put up 39-points alone in the quarter.

Team Trouble came into the game seeking revenge after taking a season ending loss to the Kings in the Far West Championships. Tasked with the tough challenge was new Team Trouble Head Coach Chris Curtis. 

The challenge that seemed to big conquer was smashed by Curtis sending a big statement in the Far West Division, as he opened up his ABA coaching career with a big win over a Far West power house.

Team Trouble now looks ahead to tonight, as they take on the Contra Costa County Delta Stars who they have beat twice this season. While the San Diego Kings continue their road trip up to the bay to play a tough San Francisco City Cat team who has yet to lose.

Tim Howell Takes Off, Team Trouble Sweeps Weekend Road Trip

OAKLAND,CA–Team Trouble sweeps out the weekend road trip with a 131-101 victory over the Oakland Townhawks Sunday night

The ABA season is in full swing and with two wins in the columns already Team Trouble looks to be going in the right path picking up their second victory of the season this weekend.

One of the biggest stars of the weekend happens to be one of the newest additions to the team. His name Tim Howell a Whitman College Alumni and a top NCAA D3 Athlete of The Year. Howell’s adjustment to ABA play has surprised many in the Far West Region. His performance this weekend seems to be only the start of what could possibly be an ABA Howell era.

Howell ended the night out with 12 two-pointers and 1 three-pointer to combine for 29-points. Following Howell in points was Smith, who also tallied 29-points and Mike McChristian right behind with 22-points.
