Indianapolis, IN.  The American Basketball Association (ABA) www.abalive.com today announced that it has added the Miami Storm to its growing list of expansion teams for the upcoming season.  “Last season, we added a team in South Florida, the South Florida, the South Florida GOLD, and in their first season they made the Final Eight in the ABA Championship Playoffs,” stated ABA CEO Joe Newman.  “And now, we’re adding the Miami Storm just down the highway and we have found a great ownership team looking to create a similar success there.  I have no doubt that it will be a great rivalry.”

The team will be owned by Maurice and Danicca Herring, both graduates of the University of West Alabama and both with degrees in Business Administration.  Married for eleven years, both have an extensive background in business and financial operations and a great love of professional basketball.  Maurice currently works in the private business sector and Dannica in the educational field.

“There is no doubt that the Miami Heat are the big news in basketball in Miami,” added Maurice.  “But there is tremendous room for high caliber professional basketball at affordable prices with top regional players from Florida State, U of Miami, Jacksonville, Florida and other great schools.  Dannica and I are very excited and pleased to be a part of the ABA.”
