History[edit]

The Crush are the second ABA team based in Calgary following the Calgary Drillers, which only played in the 2004-05 season before folding. Calgary Crush went undefeated in their inaugural ABA season playing in the nine-team Pacific Northwest Division.

The team announced on November 29, 2015 that the club would sit out the 2015-16 ABA season, citing a lack of funding.[1]
