The Pennsylvania ValleyDawgs was a United States Basketball League team located in Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania, in the Lehigh Valley region of the state. It operated from 1999 to 2006.

On May 24, 2001, Minnesota Vikings receiver Randy Moss suited up for one game with the ValleyDawgs, scoring seven points in a 113-112 victory over the Long Island Surf.[1]

In 2006, former Survivor contestant Gervase Peterson became a co-owner of the team.[2] However later that year, after encountering financial difficulties, the team folded and was replaced by the Albany Patroons.

The team was very successful during its seven-year affiliation with the USBL, winning the USBL championship in 2004. The prior year, in 2003, the team won the USBL's Eastern Division but lost in the finals.

Home court

The team's home court was the historic William Allen H.S. Gymnasium in center city Allentown, Pennsylvania. In earlier years they placed at Lehigh University's Stabler Arena.

Head coach

The head coach of the ValleyDawgs was Darryl Dawkins, a former Philadelphia 76ers star who, during his NBA career, was known for his backboard-breaking slam dunks and for amassing the most career fouls in NBA history. Dawkins is a hugely popular figure in the Allentown area, where the ValleyDawgs played.
