RAMS CLINCH AAABA BERTH; WILL DECLINE
The Michigan Rams clinched their ninth appearance in the past 13 years to the AAABA National Tournament held in Johnstown, PA. However, due to player injuries, and player scheduling conflicts which would limit the Rams to a 13-man roster (including pick ups), the Rams have declined the opportunity. Instead, Livonia will be represented by the third-place Hurricanes, who can send a full roster.
"The Rams have great respect for the AAABA and Johnstown Oldtimers, and would not diminish the quality of this fine tournament by sending an undermanned squad which would have no chance of competing for the national title".
The Rams remain involved in a tight race for the league title, with the winner appearing in the NABF National Tournament in Toledo, Ohio. The NABF tournament takes place the week prior to AAABA, when the Rams have fewer scheduling conflicts, enabling a full roster with six pick up players.
Michigan Bulls 21-8-1 43 pts (5-5)

Hurricanes 14-15-1 25 pts (8-3)
