Georgia Kingz start new season tonight at 6 at Butler High




Making it to season two for any semi-pro sports team is no easy feat. So hats off to PJ Meyers, Robert Turner, Chris Washington, Santoine Butler, Xavier Collier (all shown in the video above) and the Georgia Kingz ABA team that tips off its second season against the Gainesville Heat tonight at 6:00 P.M. at Butler High.
This season's schedule has twice the
 number of games of last season's.


The Kingz won 10 of their 11 games last season. And now that Meyers, the team's owner, and the guys have proven their staying power, this year's schedule has expanded significantly. The team from Augusta will also play in the ABA's "Georgia" division, to which Sunday's opponent Gainesville also belongs.

Since the Kingz were founded, many of the best area players from the last decade have filled the roster. Former Richmond Academy players Tommy Williams and Don Quarles are the newest additions. Williams was Augusta University's second leading scorer (13.1 ppg) and leading rebounder (8.2 rpg) last season. Quarles was a two year starter at Paine.

I highlighted the Kingz twice last season (the links to those reports are below). The team scored nearly 140 points per outing last season. And at one time Meyers was averaging 50 (!) points, and Turner over 30, per outing.

Don't miss the tip-off season two of ABA action from our Georgia Kingz!
