Rochester, NY, July 31, 2017 – The Rochester RazorSharks will officially announce their move to participate in the new North American Premier Basketball League (NAPB) for the 2018 season at a press conference to be held at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, August 2nd, at the Blue Cross Arena.

The RazorSharks spent the last decade as part of the Premier Basketball League (PBL), and reigned as league champions for 7 years of their tenure, including four consecutive championships in the last four seasons. Their move from the PBL to the NAPB signals an upgrade in competition as the new NAPB league has set its level of play second only to the NBA and above the G-League (NBA developmental league).

Dr. Sev Hrywnak and his business partner, Dave Magley, announced the formation of the new league on July 6th, 2017 at a press conference in Chicago, IL. The league’s chief intention is to reconnect professional basketball with markets throughout the United States and western Canada. The goal is to refill markets abandoned by defunct or relocated leagues as well as bring basketball to areas and demographics that can support professional basketball.

More details about the Rochester RazorSharks move to the NAPB will be discussed at the press conference. Please come and join the RazorSharks at 1:00 pm this Wednesday at the Blue Cross Arena.
