Now I have personally experienced the Sioux Falls Skyforce open tryouts and needless to say I'm still doing radio.

But there are a lot of talented hoopers that just need the exposure and they have their chance again in 2015.

The Sioux Falls Skyforce and Miami Heat have released the open tryout schedule for this season.
