News and notes from latest meeting between TN and the NCAA T-Division Board of Governors

Here is the latest to come out of the latest meeting held at TN Headquarters in Little Rock with TN officials and the NCAA T-Division Board of Governors.

If a (likely) spike in the coronavirus pandemic happens in the end of summer, plans for the upcoming college throwball season could still happen. The NCAA T-Division will go with its new longterm college basketball like format for the sport if there is no spike, but there likely will be one. If there is a spike that will put people back in mandatory quarantine through the end of 2020, the NCAA T-Division Board of Governors and the TN Officials have put together a proposal for the college throwball season:Each school would play a ten to twenty game season (conferences will get to choose how many games will be played) in a bubble for each separate conference (which would be decided by each conference’s leadership staff).

FTBL Owner and Commissioner Dylan W. interviews Alex Kupos.

Dylan sits down in an online meeting with former ranked 10th foreign prospect. Alex Kupos’ rank slowly fell this season as he missed 15 games from a broken arm. He spoke about the issue saying he is healing and that his rankings will soon go back up. That was not the case for Alex as his ranking fell from 10th best foreign to not even top 50. He says he might go back to basketball after this due to the struggle of getting his rankings up. He has played 2 years in Athens, which is also the birthplace of his parents, before moving to London and giving birth to Alex. He wants to keep playing Throwball but feels it is not good for him as he thinks about playing basketball every day. Being only 19 he still has many years left,but he feels basketball would be best for him if he wants to succeed. He had college offers to play basketball before he moved to Athens to play in the FTBL. Alex says, “I want to get my family out of the place they are, I want to go to the NBA. I want to be the next person to rep basketball for Greece like Giannis. My agent and I spoke, there is a spot on the Maine Red Claws.”
