College basketball fans can get their summer fix beginning this weekend when the Prime Time League begins. It is the 25th anniversary for the league that features players from Iowa and U.N.I. Iowa City attorney Randy Larson starter the PTL back in 1987 with the support of then Iowa coach Tom Davis and he still serves as commissioner.
Lasron says they both thought it would be popular for a long time because it is something that is free to the players and free to the fans. He says there’s anew storyline every year as the new players from Iowa and U.N.I. start playing in the league.
Larson says Iowa sophomore to be Melsahn Basabe may only see limited action in the PTL, as he is trying out for a World Games Team and it’s not know how much he will participate. Larson says that leaves open the question as to who will be the number one pick.
Larson says the league offers players a chance for quality competition in the summer. He says you never know what your teammates are going to do in a pickup game, where here everyone is on the same page and you can play hard and know everyone else is too.
The Prime Time League will be played on Sunday afternoons and Tuesday nights beginning this Sunday at the North Liberty Community Center. The Game Time League, featuring women collegiate standouts will be played on Wednesday nights beginning June 22nd.
