A grueling eight days ended with a championship for the Kenosha Ballers and coach Tony Moore . The Ballers claimed their first Independent Basketball Association title with an 87-83 win over the defending champion St. Louis Trotters before an estimated crowd of 300 at the Boys and Girls Club in Kenosha on Saturday. 'I was just trying to hold it together,' said Moore, whose sister and Ballers supporter Rachelle died on July 8 with the funeral on Thursday. 'This is for my sister.' Moore, who is assisted by Leonard Jackson, was presented with his league coach of the year, general manager of the year and community service of the year awards Saturday. 'For us to win this it means the world to Tony Moore ,' guard Brandon Morris (6'1''-G-82, college: Green Bay) said. 'He deserves it. He is one of the greatest coaches, owners and general managers that's why he got all the awards.' The game was played in its entirety after the originally scheduled contest was halted at halftime last month following a locker room robbery where most of the items were eventually recovered. The Ballers, in their fifth year in the league, were ahead by two after the first quarter, 48-41 at halftime and 64-62 after three. Kenosha led by as many as seven with about 5 minutes left but the Trotters used an 8-0 run to pull ahead. At that point, reserve Quiande Moore (6'3''-G) took over. 'Our sixth man came in,' Tony Moore said. 'I told him I was going to come to him. I told him he made me look like a genius for putting him in there.' Moore, a 6-foot-2 guard from Waukegan, responded with a lay-in off a steal that fronted the Ballers for good at 81-80. After a Trotters' miss, Moore's basket gave the Ballers a four-point cushion. The Trotters responded with a bucket but Moore drained a 3-pointer with 1:13 left to put the Ballers up by five, sealing the championship. 'I didn't get in much of the fourth quarter and coach gave me that look and told me to get in,' Quiande Moore said. 'I wanted to make a difference in the game. I believed in my shots, I took the shots and they fell. I am just happy to be a part of this great win.'
