Shreveport Bossier Mavericks holding No. 1 Slot in ABA power rankings

Shreveport Mavericks
Thursday, January 30, 2014 - 10:42am

For the second consecutive week, the Shreveport-Bossier City Mavericks are ranked the #1 team in the American Basketball Association (ABA) Power Rankings for the week ending January 26.

Once again the Mavericks held a slim lead over the Jacksonville Giants for the #1 position, according to Joe Newman, ABA’s chief executive officer.

But victory comes with a price for the Mavericks: Guard/forward P.J. Couisnard has been sidelined for four weeks with an inflamed patella tendon. Couisnard sustained the injury when the Mavericks played the Mobile Bay Tornadoes at Bossier Parish Community College on Jan. 18.

Couisnard will not require surgery or suffer long term effects, but does require rest, according to Steve Tucker, Mavericks’ president and head coach.
"Our team doctor believes that we should have P.J. back by the end of February. So we'll have him back for the end of the regular season leading into post-season play,” said Tucker. “We’ve dealt with injuries all season long, so once again we will persevere as a team and move forward."
With last week’s 112-93 win over the DFW Stars, the Mavericks are 17-0 for the season, with 43 consecutive wins and back-to-back ABA National Championships in 2010 and 2011.

The Giants, who won the 2013 ABA National Championship, head into this week’s game 18-1, after losing their grip on the ABA Power Rankings’ top slot with an overtime loss to the South Florida Gold in mid-January.

“The (Mavericks and Giants) have not met one another during the regular season, and it appears that they won’t meet until the playoffs, which should make it very exciting…though there are quite a few teams that will be strong competition come playoff time for the Championship,” said Newman.

While the Mavericks and the Giants vie for the coveted #1 position, the Richmond Elite and Arizona Scorpions hold on to their third and fourth place rankings, respectfully; and the fifth place Atlanta Wildcats, sixth place North Dallas Vandals and seventh place Chicago Steam scramble to move up.

The top four ABA teams will receive byes into the ABA Championships in April.

While the location for the ABA Championships has not been finalized, Mavericks’ fans will be happy to know that Shreveport-Bossier City is a contender to host the 2014 championship games, according to Tucker.

“There are nearly 90 professional teams competing in the ABA, and all are shooting to be #1,” said Tucker. “It took a team effort to get here, and it will take a team effort to hold on. If anyone can do it, the Mavericks will!”

The Mavericks take to the road to face off against the Mobile Bay Tornadoes this Saturday, February 1, and then enjoy home court advantage against the Dallas Diesel beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 6, at the historic Hirsch Coliseum.
