ABA seasons

The 2007-2008 ABA season was the seventh season of the American Basketball Association that lasted from November 2008 and ended with the championship game in March 2009 between the Vermont Frost Heaves and the San Diego Wildcats. The Vermont Frost Heaves won their league-best second title after defeating the Wildcats, 87-84.[1]

The 2007-2008 season haunted the league, as nearly twenty teams folded in the season's first five weeks, and many remaining at the end of the season, including the champion Frost Heaves, left the league for other existing ones.
