Shreveport LA.  The Shreveport/Bossier Mavericks won two very close games over the defending two-time ABA champion Jacksonville Giants to win the 2014 ABA Championship at Hirsch Coliseum in Shreveport, LA.  Played before  a large and very supportive home crowd, game one of the best of three series went into overtime; game two came down to the final possession in a three point game.  And a national television audience had a chance to see the excitement and quality of ABA basketball at its best on ESPN3.

“Both the Giants and the Mavericks were two-time ABA Champions,” stated ABA CEO Joe Newman.  “Mavericks Coach Steve Tucker and Giants Coach Kevin Waters had their sights set on being the first three time winner and had their teams well prepared for a classic battle,  It was all that and more. If anyone ever questioned the excitement of the ABA game with its unique rules – and the outstanding players and coaches in our league, their questions were surely answered this week. Congratulations to the Mavericks – well done.”
