The Cary Invasion is a member of the Tobacco Road Basketball League based in Cary, North Carolina which began play in 2011 as a member of the Continental Basketball League.[2] Home games are played at the Herbert Young Community Center.[2]

2011 - 2012[edit]

After winning the CBL championship in their inaugural year, the team announced (with the Wilmington Sea Dawgs) the formation of the Tobacco Road Basketball League and their membership therein.[3]

The team finished second in the TRBL, but lost in the championship game to the PrimeTime Players after besting the Wilmington Sea Dawgs in the semi-final. Head coach Marqus Johnson stepped down for a college coaching position and was replaced by Chris La Rocca.[1]
