The LA Maples will be the 35th expansion team of the Women’s American Basketball Association, playing home games Sundays at the armory.

“The thing about the venue is the crowd is right on top of you,” Seavey said. “Having coached high school basketball in different venues, especially at state tournament time, the Portland Civic Center wasn’t a real nice basketball venue. The Portland Expo, with the crowd right on top of you, that’s when it gets exciting.

“With that being said, there are some rules in place in this league that are going to make the game very exciting for fans. It is not a 10-second backcourt line now. It is seven. The other side to that is if you are a pressing team, and you are forcing tempo and you turn your opponent over in the the backcourt, you get an extra point if you score off that turnover.
