Matt Cumro, Lincoln Supreme & Bison Board of Directors


Exciting Announcement From The

NBDA Board of Directors

It is with great pride that we share this information with the loyal NBDA players (past and present), parents, coaches across Nebraska, and followers. The NBDA Board of Directors has decided it is in our best interest to merge the NBDA program with Lincoln Supreme. The merger will begin with the 8th grade, 9th grade, and 10th-grade programs in 2020. 

The NBDA Bison Red (U17) will have 2 teams for the 2020 AAU season. The NBDA and NBCA will sponsor a freshman tournament Memorial Day weekend in Lincoln again in May 2020. 

From the start of the Nebraska Basketball Development Association in 1981 with 1 team and 1 tournament in Las Vegas to today, the goal of the NBDA has always been to improve the quality of high school basketball in Nebraska. The growth of AAU basketball across Nebraska and the nation has led to many great AAU programs in Nebraska. 

In meeting with Matt Cumro of Lincoln Supreme, the NBDA board feels the Lincoln Supreme program values many of the same things the NBDA always has. It was important for the program to value the desire for kids to be multisport athletes at their respective schools, develop the fundamental skills and team play of young athletes, and build relationships that last a lifetime for the kids and families who decide to make the time and financial commitment to be a part of an AAU basketball program. 

We would like to thank all of the sponsors the NBDA has had throughout the years. We thank the players and their families for the time and dedication to the NBDA program. The NBDA Bison look forward to joining the Lincoln Supreme program and carrying on the tradition of improving high school basketball in Nebraska.
