I love basketball and I love this even more. It's year four for the Binghamton Bulldogs and they have some exciting things happening. They are in search of a new facility to call home and they are joining a new league. The Bulldogs have been a member of the American Basketball Association (ABA) since 2017 but they are moving on up.

After three seasons in the ABA, they will compete in the Mid-Atlantic Conference of the 30-team East Coast Basketball League (ECBL.) The ECBL has a great reputation throughout the basketball world with a tremendous relationship with FIBA Europe and a talent pool of players that will impress.

The season starts in January and ends in June, which matches up perfectly with the NCAA Tournament, NBA playoffs, and the NBA Finals. Here's some more good news, The Binghamton Bulldogs will still host an all-star game in July when the 2021 ECBL Mid-Atlantic Divison All-Star game comes to town

The Bulldogs switching leagues go along with their plan to find a new place to call the Dawg Pound. The Binghamton Bulldogs called Davis College home until last year when they played their games at St. Patrick's Church in Binghamton.

The ECBL follows the 2020 NBA rulebook and the playoffs are hosted by the top-seeded team in the regular season. They hope their season will start on January 10th and we are crossing our fingers that they'll have their own facility but right now it's to soon to tell if they'll be howling at their own home by January.

The Dawg Pound Sports Complex will be used for many things besides Binghamton Bulldog home games. They'll have summer basketball camps, youth clinics, schools out camps, AAU tournaments, youth team practices, and adult men's & women's leagues.

They are also want to host volleyball leagues and tournaments, floor hockey, batting cages, badminton, concerts, birthday parties, and more. Go here to see more about the ECBL and the Binghamton Bulldogs. WOOF and Let's Go DAWGS!
