“So we treated it like a real combine,” said owner Kenya Williams in a September interview with WYDaily. “These guys are at least going to go through dribbling drills, shooting drills, passing drills, and we’re testing their basketball IQ. We’re also looking at their experience. We’re looking at their whole resume all the way from high school to the collegiate level. We have some guys that even have some pro experience. They played only one year overseas, or they played a couple of months, but some guys even have that experience.”

The local semi-pro basketball team also played its first pre-season scrimmage game Saturday against the Charlottesville Gladiators at Monticello High School.

The Triangle Shooters are co-hosting an event on Oct. 13 at the Toano McDonald’s location from 6-8 p.m. — 10% of all drive-thru and dine-in sales will go towards the team.

The organization also said that it has moved from American Basketball Association (ABA) to the Professional Basketball Association (PBA). The team says that the move to PBA means that all their games will be live-streamed on Roku TV/Youtube.
