History

The Jamestown Jackals were founded in 2015 by Kayla Crosby and joined the minor professional Premier Basketball League (PBL) for the 2016 season.[1] After the 2017 season, the PBL folded. The Jackals then played the 2018 season in the semi-professional North American Basketball League (NABL) as part of a new Northeast Division.[2] The Jackals won the division title in April 2018 to advance to the league championship,[3] where they lost to the Dallas Mustangs.[4]

On August 29, 2018, The Basketball League (TBL) announced the Jackals would join the rebranded league for the 2019 season.[5] After one season, Jackals owner and general manager Kayla Crosby was named the director of team development for The Basketball League.[6] She then hired DeMarcus Oliver, who previously served as an assistant coach for the Raleigh Firebirds, to be the Jackals general manager in her place.
