Hosts: Hunter Phillips and James Maertens

Hunter Phillips and James Maertens traveled to Waterloo, Iowa to meet a new semi-professional basketball team in Iowa. The Cedar Valley CourtKings are one of eleven teams that will compete in the inaugural season of the Midwest Basketball League. Hear from the owner and players, including a 37-year old local attorney, on what they hope to achieve while participating in the MBL.   

Urban Plains sends our condolences to the family of CourtKings player Rashad Namar Carrington, who died in a car accident on May 8.
