Rebels Prepare New Roster for 2014 FBA Season


The Tampa Bay Rebels will look to make some additions to their roster heading into the 2014 Florida Basketball Association season.  Since joining the FBA, the Rebels have compiled a record of 22-4, and captured the 2012 FBA championship.  In 2013, members of the Rebels won 5 out of 11 FBA Player of the Week awards, while other members of the team continued their careers in other countries.  “Last season we had very talented players on the roster, but we didn’t have the championship chemistry.  We reached the championship game for the second consecutive time, and we came within a basket of back-to-back titles,” coach Fernando Rojas commented.  “We are a team based on performance, and this year, we are revamping the roster and also adding a new assistant coach that knows the organization quite well.  The task of choosing the right players will start with tryouts in March, and, by early April, the roster should be finalized.”
