SEBRING, FL LATEST ABA EXPANSION TEAM
Indianapolis, IN. The American Basketball Association (ABA) today announced a new team to be located in Sebring FL, the latest team of the record-setting expansion for the upcoming season which begins in November. “The Southeast Division is one of the strongest in the ABA,” stated ABA CEO Joe Newman. “And the addition of this team definitely makes it stronger. A great location, two great owners.”
The team will be owned by co-owners Dr. Tamika Sims and Raymond Hucks, Jr. Dr. Sims attended UNC at Chapel Hill where she received her degree in Physical Education/Sport Science and worked as an athletic trainer for various sports while in school. She attended Sherman College of Chiropractic where she received her Doctorate in Chiropractic. “I have always had a passion for athletics and helping others,” added Dr. Sims. “I decided to be a part of the ABA after meeting another ABA owner while residing in Durham. She inspired me to have a team of my own. I decided Sebring would be a great place to start a team. It will bring the Heartland community together on a positive note and will create a way to network and promote businesses as well.”
Raymond Hucks, Jr, is a native of North Carolina and a graduate of NC State. “I thoroughly enjoy helping people as a Mortgage Loan Officer and Real State professional,” commented Hucks. “I also started a trucking company which gives employment opportunities and aids in the growing construction boom. I have always had a passion for basketball and the power it has to galvanize youth and communities. My goals are to bring great energy, perseverance and an organization of excellence to the ABA family and the Heartland community.
