MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) — A professional basketball league is trying to get off the ground in the Great Plains.

The National Basketball League of America is affiliated with the National Basketball League of Canada.

The goal is to help former NCAA and NAIA college basketball players who have regional connections get noticed by other, more established pro leagues.

League President Darryl Greene tells The Daily Republic newspaper that the goal is to have six teams for the inaugural season that’s scheduled to start in September and run through November.

The Dakota Magic will be based in Mitchell, the Omaha Charges in Nebraska and the Sioux City Hornets in Iowa. Greene has been in conversation with officials in Rapid City, Bismarck and Fargo about starting teams in those cities.
