With the NBA season in jeopardy, there is a chance we won't get to see Da'Sean Butler or Devin Ebanks play until next season. Players and owners have had negotiations, but they are still far enough apart that the start of the NBA Preseason has already been delayed. Some players such as Deron Williams and Kenyon Martin have signed contracts to play overseas in case there is no season. Instead of waiting to see if he gets offered a contract by an NBA team, former Mountaineer, Joe Alexander, signed a one-year contract to play in Russia.
If you're a fan of basketball, and Bob Huggins Mountaineer team doesn't give you enough of a basketball fix, never fear.The Eastern Basketball Alliance returns for it's second season. The EBA is a semi-professional league, and its current form was established in 2002. The EBA allows aspiring players to showcase their skills in a highly competitive atmosphere, while at the same time, providing families with enjoyable, affordable entertainment.
Kevin Pittsnogle, of WVU Mountaineer lore, will return for his second season of play with the Winchester Storm in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. Pittsnogle was one of the main draws for the team last season along with former Georgetown Hoya, Tyler Crawford.
Pittsnogle had been out of basketball since 2008 before joining the Storm last season. Although Pittsnogle did not lead the team in scoring last season, he is their main draw. Pittsnogle still ranks 2nd for the Mountaineers in all-time 3-point % and is 6th on the all-time scoring list.
