Report: D.C. Assault AAU to become D.C. Premier following Curtis Malone’s arrest on federal drug charges
Sep 9, 2013, 7:05 PM EST
One month ago, D.C. Assault AAU co-founder Curtis Malone was indicted by a federal grand jury on drug trafficking charges.
Malone faces up to 40 years in prison after being arrested on Aug. 9. Days after the arrest, D.C. Assault announced that Malone is now longer associated with the team. On Monday, it appears that events of last month have ended D.C. Assault’s run as one of the premier AAU teams in the country.
Next summer, Under Armour will unveil its new Washington-based AAU program called D.C. Premier, according to Jeff Ermann of Inside MD Sports. Ermann believes that most of the staff and players from D.C. Assault with make the move under the new name
D.C. Assault has been around since the early 1990s, and produced NBA players like Michael Beasley, Jeff Green, Keith Bogans and Nolan Smith. Jeff Borzello of CBS Sports complied some of the reactions from D.C. Assault’s alumni.
