(Editor's Note: CoBL is back. But to stay here, we need your help. For now, we'll only be able to post a few stories each week; the more support we get, the more stories we'll be able to publish as we can pay more quality freelancers for their work. To help support CoBL, please subscribe to our Patreon page; it's only $3/month to support local hoops coverage, with a $5/month option for those who'd like to contribute more. Subscriptions support the site, and also give you access to exclusive content such as interviews or behind-the-scenes thoughts. With enough subscriptions, we'll be able to get more and more writers out there, getting CoBL back to its heyday. -JV)
