About Worcester 78s

The leadership team of the Worcester 78's announced the team's establishment in July 2017. The team completed a partial, pilot season in the American Basketball Association (ABA) during the 2016-17. Then the New England Anchors, the team finished with seven wins and four losses. All but one of the team's players in the 2016-17 season where from New England.

That team's roster included three former NCAA Division I players, several players with experience at various professional levels across the world and two former team captains from the perennially successful Division III program and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI)

Three players from that team have gone on to play overseas, or will be doing so this upcoming season. Players landed in Germany, Spain and Israel.

During the off-season following the 2016-17 season team ownership set a goal of finding a permanent home in Worcester. In  July, the team announced an agreement with Boys & Girls Club of Worcester to host its home games at the Club's Tainter Street headquarters.

American Basketball Association

The original ABA was launched in 1967 and played nine seasons. Of the many stars and eventual NBA players the league produced, Moses Malone and Julius "Dr. J." Erving are two of the best.

After an impressive nine year run, 1975-76 season became its last. The NBA/ ABA merger brought some ABA teams over with them including the Indiana Pacers. More important to the game at the time, the NBA now featured players that had thrilled ABA fans.

Between 1976 and 1999 there was use of the ABA brand. In 1999 the NBA licensed the use of the old ABA brands to a group that sought to bring the ABA back.

Today our league has over 100 teams across the United States. It is the largest and most diverse sports league in the world.  Team owners span a range of multi racial, ethnic and religious diversity. Team owners include many women. The ABA also has emerging leagues in Mexico and Australia.
