Monarchs lose season opener for 1st time in 7 seasons

Flint Monarch goes for a shot against Milwaukee Aces

Milwaukee, WI-The Flint Monarchs opened the season on the road at Milwaukee, WI but lost its season opener for the first time in 7 seasons to the Aces 73-84 on Saturday June 17, 2017. 

“Losing your first game is not a deal breaker or indicator of how the season will play out,” said Monarchs president and general manager Drey Wynn.  “We have a winning tradition but losing two starters who arguably were the league’s best players (Jasmine McCall-20.1 ppg & Jasmine Thomas-20.2 ppg) to season ending injuries doesn’t help the cause.”

The Aces were led by Alex Cohen with 18 points & 2 rebounds and Chelan Landry posted 15 points & 4 rebounds.  The Monarchs were paced by Crystal Bradford’s 24 points & 10 rebounds, Shareta Brown finished with 16 points & 13 rebounds and Arlesia Morse chipped in 15 points.

“I am confident that Coach Nicole Randolph will rally the team behind her and get us back on a winning track.”

The Flint Monarchs will host the Chicago Breeze on Saturday June 24, 2017 at 4pm, all home games will be played at Mott Community College.

FLINT, MI – Nearly 400 fans witnessed the Flint Monarchs capture its second straight Women's American Basketball Association national title on Saturday, Aug. 8 at Mott Community College.


The Monarchs used a 30-point fourth-quarter surge to close out the Milwaukee Aces in a 84-61 victory at Ballenger Field House.

Former Michigan State guard and Flint Hamady product Jasmine Thomas was named the Finals MVP after posting a game-high 24 points with seven rebounds, five assists and a pair of blocks.

"Jasmine Thomas is a pro player at any level and she demonstrated that skill today through her dominance during the biggest game of the season," Flint Monarchs president and general manager Drey Wynn said.

Former Marquette star Arlesia Morse also contributed 13 points in the fourth quarter while playing in front of friends, family and her Flint Hamady High School coach Keith Smith.

During the post-game ceremony, Wynn announced that Nicole Randolph would remain as the Monarchs' head coach as he moves forward with the franchise.

She took over as head sideline leader when former Monarchs coach Bill Schnorenberg resigned after the fourth game of the summer.

She knew there were a lot of people watching her but her performance resulted into a national championship," Wynn said. "She got the team to rally behind her, to pull together as one unit and play at a level I have not seen the Monarchs play in three seasons.

Flint Monarchs Pack Gym for Season Opener

Season Opener

FLINT (WJRT) - (06/17/15) - Jasmine Thomas didn't get much sleep Tuesday night. The former Michigan State Spartan stayed up late, watching her old MSU buddy Draymond Green win an NBA Championship.

"There's Big Spartan pride there. Congrats to him and the Warriors. Hopefully we follow in his footsteps and go ahead and win us another WABA Championship," Thomas said.

The journey begins Saturday for Michigan's only women's professional basketball team. That's when the Flint Monarchs play their home opener against Milwaukee at Mott's Ballenger Field House.

"I want to see a packed house. I want to be able to walk into an atmosphere so amazing that the other team is just so distraught, just loud," Thomas said.

"That's our challenge this year. We want every seat filled with these great fans here in Flint," said Monarchs coach Bill Schnorenberg.

In between practice and their day jobs, players have been busy shaking hands, while also building up a social media storm, all to spread awareness that this championship team exists.

"The Chamber of Commerce has been amazing. We've already met with the Crim. They've been amazing, the Flint Farmers' Market has been a great help to us, and we're just getting out to as many people as we can here. We just want everyone involved in the Monarchs," Schnorenberg said.

The Monarchs will play four home games this summer, and are planning plenty of activities for fans, including a kids clinic on Saturday.

"Right here at halftime, we're going to teach them how to dribble that ball, how to shoot that ball, and just give them an opportunity to have some fun," said Linell Jones-McKenney.
