Semi Pro League Beginning



The Hoosier Hardwood Basketball Association is excited to bring Semi-Professional Basketball Teams to Indiana, the Mid-West and across the US! Hoosier Hardwood is devoted to community involvement, school partnerships and allowing athletes to accomplish their personal dream of playing Professional Basketball! Our players earn between $500/month – $2,000/month, based upon experience and skill.
We are blessed to have Indiana Basketball Legend Kent Benson as the Chairman/Founder of the Hoosier Hardwood Basketball Association. Kent was Mr. Indiana’s Mr. Basketball in 1973, won the 1976 NCAA Championship @ Indiana University coached by the legendary Bobby Knight and Kent was the #1 NBA Draft Pick in 1977! Kent’s incredible success in College, the NBA and Over-seas, provides a great foundation for players who are looking for an opportunity to play Professionally! With Kent’s expertise and connections – the Hoosier Hardwood will help players develop into professional athletes, help players earn “paid” contracts and help players reach their highest level possible of playing professionally!
Establishing a “new” Professional Basketball Team takes an entire community! It requires players, basketball fans, sponsors, investors, ownership, volunteers with Stats and Game-day operations.
⦁ “We need players!” “If you, your friend, your son, your brother, your dad, etc played basketball in Indiana (or the Mid-West) and loves the Tradition of Indiana Basketball – then we need your help finding players!”
