The Jacksonville Giants are making waves in the ABA. They won the 2013 ABA Championship by defeating the North Dallas Vandals. They beat Dallas in two straight games. They first beat the Vandals in a close 85-84 victory and followed it up with a higher scoring win in their second game, 110-109.
After being founded in 2010, the Giants have dove in head on and have come up with impressive results for a very young franchise. As early as 2011, they already made it to the Semifinals and in 2012 was able to bag its first ABA Championship.
The ABA has now a clear top dog and other teams will be looking to make improvements in order to unseat the back-to-back defending champs.
