2014 IBA Fall Season Preview

The 2014 IBA Fall Season begins tonight at the KVPD Recreational Center when the Kankakee County Soldiers host the International Racers at 5:00 PM. The Soldiers look to rebound from a semifinal loss to eventual champion Grand Rapids Fusion in the Spring season and capture their fourth-straight Fall season championship. Kankakee County is the only Fall season champion the IBA has ever known, winning all three previous league championships.

Kankakee will have their hands full this season with some veteran teams looking to come in and take the crown. Veteran IBA teams the International Racers, Kenosha Ballers, and the Saint Louis Trotters return better than last season, and all feel like they have a shot at the championship this season.

Schenectady Legends (formerly Albany) also return to the league full-time after a hiatus and move. The Legends, who lost the 2012 spring championship game, should be contenders again.
