Surge Basketball Runs Gauntlet, Claims WBCBL National Title - Aug 8, 2016

A fully re-charged St. Louis Surge women's professional basketball team played its best round ball of the season and won the Women's Blue Chip Basketball League (WBCBL) National Championship this past weekend at San Antonio's Judson High School. After finishing second at the WBCBL's Mid West tournament two weekends ago at University of Missouri-St. Louis, the Surge had to hold its collective breath to see if it would receive an at-large bid to the governing body's national trophy tilt. St. Louis inevitably snared entry and, as the seventh seed heading into this weekend's eight-team single elimination tourney, netted seeded upsets over #2 Conyers Rockets (112-100), #3 Charlotte Invasion (77-62) and #5 Flyers Elite (69-55) en route to its second national title in the past three seasons. The Surge, the 2014 WBCBL National Champions and last season's runner-up, finished its 2016 title campaign with a 13-2 record. 'This season we set out to accomplish winning another National Championship and we worked hard to build just that, a championship team,' said Surge Owner/General Manager Khalia Collier. 'All season long, we have a been a true team that goes twelve-deep. Every single player contributed to winning this title!' In Saturday morning's quarterfinal match-up against second-seeded Conyers Rockets, the Surge were trailing 26-22 after the first quarter but a 36-17 sprint in the second frame gave the locals a 58-43 lead at intermission. Scoring was comparable in the second half and St. Louis secured semifinal placement with the 112-100 victory, paced by Rebecca Harris (5'9''-PG-86, college: Illinois)' 18 points. Saturday night's semifinal against third-seeded Charlotte, the defending WBCBL champion, featured a tighter game defensively. Sporting a 21-13 lead after one quarter, the Surge maintained a 41-32 lead at halftime. The Surge's defense held the Invasion to single digits in the third quarter and, with its 18-7 edge in the frame, possessed a 59-41 lead heading into the fourth. Charlotte chipped away at the differential but could not stay close as the Surge, paced by 14-point outputs from Shanity James (5'11''-F-93) and Michala Johnson (6'3''-F/C, college: Wisconsin, agency: LBM Management), notched the 77-62 duke and entry to the title game.
Sunday afternoon's WBCBL trophy meeting with Elsberry, Missouri's Flyers Elite, the team that had previously thumped the Surge in the aforementioned Mid West division finale, once again saw St. Louis buckle down defensively and possess a 16-6 at the end of the first quarter. Flyers Elite outscored the Surge, 20-13, in the second quarter but St. Louis maintained a 29-26 lead at intermission. The Surge edged the Flyers, 16-13, in the third quarter and possessed a 45-39 lead heading into the WBCBL's final quarter of the season. In the fourth, St. Louis capitalized on late fouls, converted on free throws, and outscored the Flyers 24-16, en route to the 69-55 triumph that netted the franchise its second WBCBL national trophy. As a result of its Mid West title setback two weekends ago, the Surge was proverbially on the ropes. With its national trifecta collected in the Lone Star State, the squad has fully established itself as a WBCBL legacy franchise with a 40-5 overall record over the last three seasons and two national trophies. 'Our players, coaches, staff and fans gave it everything they had,' said Collier. 'I could not be more proud in all that we have accomplished and what we have built in the city of St. Louis! We are National Champions yet again! I am forever grateful!'
