HistoryEdit

The Texas Fuel were originally going to go by the name South Texas Showboats until the management saw an environmental film named FUEL that inspired them to go green and change their name to the Texas Fuel. The team entered the ABA and have been perennial playoff contenders since the 2009-2010 season.

The Fuel boast of being the first ABA team to display their full-on dedication to going green by promoting the use of alternative fuels to power vehicles, like bio-fuel. In honor of this commitment, the team was also given a bio-fuel powered bus by Farouk USA and Biosilk during the 2009-2010 season.

The Texas Fuel have had several All-Star players throughout it's five year roster, and became the first ABA franchise to sign a current National Basketball Association player to it's roster when Indiana Pacers member George Hill, then playing for the NBA's San Antonio Spurs, signed a contract to play two exposition games for the team while waiting for the 2010-2011 NBA lockout to end.
