The Tri-City Suns are a team of the Atlantic Coast Professional Basketball League (ACPBL)[1] which started play in the American Basketball Association in the 2009-10 season.[2] Home games were played on the campus of Progressive Christian Academy in Temple Hills, Maryland.[2]

The Suns were the only basketball team playing in Prince George's County. The Maryland Nighthawks played the 2004-05 season at The Show Place Arena in Upper Marlboro, but, prompted by poor attendance, moved to Rockville in Montgomery County the following season.[2] In January 2011, the Suns were recruited to replace the Washington GreenHawks (formerly the same Maryland Nighthawks) in the ACPBL.[1]
