The team consists of some of this area’s finest up and
coming players. The Cheetahs have gathered some of the most athletic, exciting
talent this area has seen. From Division I Appalachian State’s Kellen Brand,
and Jeremy Clayton, Old Dominion’s Marsharee Neely, High Point University’s
Landon Quick and NCA&T’s Robert Johnson, JCSU’s Ryan Scott, who is the son
of NBA legend Dennis Scott “3D”. Professional
players Damien Goodman, Terrance Jones, and Quenton Goods, improve the Triad’s
professional basketball team. The Cheetahs roster consist of highly touted
professional players that have completed college and had experience playing at
the next level. Due to the NBA lockout, many of our players are on the verge of
signing Professional European basketball contracts but will keep improving
under the philosophy of Wells.

The Cheetahs are coached by Tim Wells, former NC State
player and Winston-Salem State assistant basketball coach. Tim was employed
last season as Head Coach at KK Triland, a professional basketball team in
Bosnia-Herzegovina. Wells led the Triland team to an undefeated regular season
record (10-0). With a record of (14-1), Wells
was named League “Coach of the Year” after coming back to the triad area with
the Championship.

“I love the versatility and
athleticism of this team. It’s no secret the ABA has allowed some very
interesting rules and we are going to capitalize on them,” said Coach Wells, “Our
goal is to have a (200) point game. With our depth and talent we will be able
to accomplish this goal. This is going to be the most fun and excitement people
have seen in a while in Professional Basketball!”

Wells said he couldn’t be happier with the final roster
heading into the Cheetahs season opener on November 19th at UNC-Greensboro’s
Fleming Gymnasium with the Lynchburg Legends from VA. Game starts at 7:30pm and
tickets are available online for all home games at www.carolinacheetahs.com via Event
