Owners decide not to play in postseason
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Nashville Rhythm are skipping the American Basketball Association playoffs, another odd turn for a team whose co-owner fired the coach during a game this season.
The team, which is up for sale, would have hosted a first-round game after finishing the regular season 21-10.
"We've lost several players and felt we were not ready for the playoffs," the owners said in a statement. "We decided to open a spot in the playoffs for a more competitive team."
