Basically, the Ultimate Basketball Association (UBA) is a professional basketball simulation program that can be configured to run a complex simulation league, or to just follow your favorite team through the season. If you are looking for an "NBA Live" type game with arcade style graphics, then this game is not for you. But if you are looking for an accurate basketball simulator, this is the one to try.

The Program:

The shareware version of the UBA program consists of the latest version of the UBA program (version 5.1), including all stand alone utilities, and the complete 1993-94 basketball season stats.  Additional seasons from the 1973-74 season to the present are available.  Each season contains every player that played in that season, the complete rosters of each team, and the full season schedule.

Features of the UBA Software:

Accuracy: The strength of the UBA software. While other programs may be superior to the UBA in graphical display, the UBA simulator is hard to beat when it comes to accuracy.

Flexibility: The UBA software is flexible in both the league setup, and coaching aspects of the program. As commissioner, you can modify the league to run on automatic pilot where several games are played in a matter of seconds, or you can have complete control over each individual game (or anywhere in between).
