Well, this is surprising and disappointing news to report this afternoon.

It was just announced in a press release from the team that the Kentucky Mavericks organization is ceasing operations in Owensboro.

“The Kentucky Mavericks organization is ceasing operations. We are very thankful to the Owensboro community as well as the Shreveport, LA community for welcoming and supporting us over the last four years.”

The team has been such a huge part of our community so this is sad news indeed. We'll keep you posted as more details become available.
