Cavalry, CBA to abbreviate remainder of season

The Lawton-Fort Sill Cavalry, along with the Continental Basketball Association (CBA), will be abbreviating games for the remainder of the season.

In a press release, Cavalry management wrote:

"Our community, the town of Lawton, is a better place to live because of your civic involvement.  Your vision, your leadership, your generosity, enhances the quality of life for the people of the Lawton-Fort Sill community and southwest Oklahoma.  We know we can count on your continued support as we regroup and begin again our mission of providing a high quality, high class, sports entertainment venue for families in our community.

"To our season ticket holders:  We recognize that you invested more than just money in this team.  We know that your involvement extended beyond each 48-minute game.  Our team knows each of you and thanks you for your dedication.  We will be in contact with each of you this week with further information.

"Again, we express our deepest disappointment in this unfortunate turn of events and we thank those close to the team for their unwavering support."

For more information, please contact the Cavs office at 580-353-2287.

The CBA wrote:

"Due to the ever increasing problems with the economy, the CBA has decided to abbreviate the remainder of the regular season...This is the best course of action for the CBA to take at this time.  The economy has affected us all and we are now directly seeing the fallout from that.  We will be  holding an owners meeting during the finals as we look to restructure the CBA and come back next season stronger than ever."
