Central Illinois Drive

 The Bloomington Flex is a professional minor league basketball team that plays in the Premier Basketball League. Based in Bloomington, Illinois, the Flex play their home games at U.S. Cellular Coliseum.

The Flex are owned by Bloomington businessman Scott Henderson. Their head coach is A. J. Guyton, a Peoria native and former Chicago Bulls and Golden State Warriors player who also enjoyed a long playing career overseas.

The Flex played the 2012 season as the expansion Central Illinois Drive. The Drive finished the 2012 regular season 18-1 and swept the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Steamers in the first round of the PBL playoffs, and then on April 14, 2012, the Drive completed a two-game sweep of the defending PBL champions, the Rochester RazorSharks, at U.S Cellular Coliseum in the PBL Finals to win the 2012 PBL Championship.

Despite their success, Drive owner Jim Morris decided he no longer wanted to own the team after just one season of play. Henderson, the Executive Vice President of the Drive, wanted to take over the team, but he and Morris could not come to an agreement about the use of name and logo for the Drive. Henderson and his management team then decided to reboot the entire operation. On December 1, 2012, Henderson announced the new franchise as the Bloomington Flex.
