The East Kentucky Miners hit the mother lode Sunday, as the minor league basketball team finished their game only 6 points away from bucketing 200.
OUR SPORTS CENTRAL bounces up news that the pride of Pikeville crushed the Atlanta Krunk 194-115 in CBA action, with eight different Miners digging up double-digits in scoring.
It is nice to see the Continental Basketball Association still alive, rising like a phoenix from the ashes of the Isiah Thomas years.
It’s true, Knicks fans - your team isn’t the only b-ball organization the popcorn pusher is bent on destroying. In 1999, an investment group led by Thomas purchased all the teams in the 53-year old league. And within 2 years, the entire CBA folded.
Yet the league has, *ahem*, rebounded back into existence. So there’s still hope for the MSG crowd.
Anyway, the 194 points obviously broke the all-time league record of 183, set by the Anchorage Northern Lights back in 1979. (Wonder if ESPN was around yet to showcase the highlights.)
And before you ask - yes, there is a team called the Atlanta Krunk. And they face off against opponents like the Albany Patroons, the Minot Skyrockets, and our personal favorite - the Butte Daredevils.
