Rockford's newest professional sports team was introduced to the public here in town today. The Rock River Fury of the American Basketball Association will become the newest pro team this winter. The Fury will take over for the Sauk Valley Rollers franchise from Dixon.. The Rollers were renamed the Fury because of gambling issues related to the name. Earlier we caught up with Rock River Head Coach Dave Knickelbein about some of the unique rules in the ABA.
"DAVE: Anytime you make a shot on the other side of halfcourt. That's 4 points. I've seen games where there is 30 seconds left teams down 12 and it's a ball game. Thats kind of unique in that regards."
