Rankin Looks Ahead at BayHawks in Year Two

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

In my recent interview with Erie BayHawks Vice President of Business Operations Matt Bresee, he spoke briefly about what the organization learned during its first year of operation and what it has planned for year two.

Duane Rankin of the Erie Times-News caught up with some other key figures, including BayHawks majority owner Steve Demetriou to get some additional insight into year two for the D-League franchise:

Erie's ownership and business management teams, along with the NBA and D-League representatives, met in Erie this past week to discuss ways to improve the franchise.

As Demetriou drove home to Cleveland on Wednesday, he felt good about the direction the BayHawks are headed.

"I was very pleased with the goals being set," he said Thursday. "Realistic goals, but very creative goals on increasing attendance."

Those who know Demetriou say the BayHawks are in good hands with him as their majority owner.
