Monarchs join Global Women's Basketball Association (GWBA)

Executive Board of the GWBA (including Drey Wynn, President of Flint Monarchs)

February 27, 2016 at 6:59 PM

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS -- A bigger, better, and bolder brand of women's professional basketball is set to kick off in the summer of 2016.

Former James Madison University forward Sonya Nichols held a special press conference on Saturday, Feb. 27 at the Embassy Suites Chicago. She announced the Global Women's Basketball Association (GWBA) in conjunction with the Unique Starz Sports & Entertainment group.

"Thank you, we are pleased to announce the 2016 inaugural launch," said Nichols, CEO of the GWBA. "We are sure that you will feel the sense of pride we share in belonging to this growing organization."

After the official declaration, Nichols slapped hands in celebration with other GWBA executive board members in the meeting room.

GWBA Commissioner Bernell Hooker and COO Drey Wynn made the trip to the Windy City to witness the league's unveiling. Bright green and navy blue are the official colors.

"We all have a passion for the game and not only a passion for the game but a passion to help people," said Nichols. "If basketball was a gift for me then I'm responsible for using it to give back in any way that I can.

"It's just an honor and a blessing to be able to establish a league with kindred spirits," she added.

Four Midwest teams have initially committed to the GWBA, including the back-to-back defending Women's American Basketball Association national champion Flint Monarchs.

In addition to Flint, the Milwaukee Aces, Illinois Starletz, and Louisville Fillies have also signed up. Nichols is still waiting to hear back from an Ohio team as well. In the future, the league plans to branch out to add more franchises once it gets more established.

The league will use four, 10-minute quarters with WNBA rules. Games will start in June, playoffs are set for August, and an overseas tournament is in the works for September.

"I love basketball," said Wynn, also the President of the Monarchs. "I just want to give the women in the state of Michigan an opportunity to play on an outstanding team in the GWBA.

"I feel this is the right move," he continued. "The timing is right, we've got the right people in place and we're just going to go upward from here."

In addition to the press conference, members of the board sat around to discuss league operations. They also talked over team schedules, ideas for recruiting players, professionalism, action items, marketing plans, and ways to assist in the community.

At the end of the meeting, non-disclosure and market reservation agreements were signed to hold each other accountable.

The plan is to become a farm system for ladies to get overseas or possibly reach the WNBA after college.

"We can also utilize the WNBA alumni," said Hooker, Owner and General Manager of the Milwaukee Aces. "We want to do what the other leagues are not doing."

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.

OT Electricity: St. Louis Surge Tops Flint Monarchs, 87-81

Trenia Barbee drives to the hole for 2 of her 14 points

(ST. LOUIS, MO) For the 1,000 in attendance at the St. Louis Surge’s home finale at UMSL Saturday, they certainly got their money’s worth…and then some.

Tied 78-78 after regulation, the Surge utilized a 9-3 overtime frame to pick up an 87-81 victory over the Flint (MI) Monarchs.

As projected, the exhibition match-up between St. Louis, the defending champions of the Women’s Blue Chip Basketball Association (WBCBL), and Flint, holders of the same distinction within the Women’s American Basketball Association (WABA), provided plenty of heart-stopping moments throughout. Nine lead changes during regulation propelled the narrative.

“This was a great match-up between champions and it lived up to expectations,” said Surge forward Rebecca Harris of the six-point win that pushed the team’s overall record to 10-1. “We liked that they came in and brought it to us. We expected nothing less.”

The ensuing donnybrook between the two hard court queen pins was the perfect primer for the Surge’s trek to the WBCBL National Championships next weekend in Greenville, South Carolina. St. Louis, seeded third in the bracketed field of eight, meets sixth-seeded San Antonio in the quarterfinals this Saturday.

“This just prepared us for what’s in store,” assessed Harris. “It provided a great opportunity for us to practice and see that we’re about to see. It wasn’t a pretty game, but it was a battle. That’s what we needed.”


Prior to the opening tip, the numbers overwhelmingly favored St. Louis as the Surge brought a roster of eleven while the Monarchs only fielded six.

However, the visiting empresses brought plenty of firepower and came close to slaying the Surge’s 12-game home winning streak at UMSL’s Mark Twain Building.

Trailing 6-5 two minutes in, St. Louis churned a 7-0 rally to grab the early advantage. Brittany Carter’s scoreboard-flipping three-pointer at the 7:15 mark, followed by buckets from Jaleesa Butler and Carter on the next two possessions, gave the Surge a 12-6 edge with 4:45 left in the first quarter.

The score stretched to 17-10 following Carter’s second three pointer of the quarter at the 3:05 mark but Flint’s 5-0 run, punctuated by Trenia Barbee’s 10-foot jumper with 2:00 left, narrowed the Surge’s lead to 17-15.

St. Louis’ Gabriella Green connected with a three-foot put back off the glass deep in the quarter to give the Surge a 19-15 lead at the conclusion of the first stanza.


Flint whittled away at the deficit to start the second quarter and regained the lead two minutes in as Barbee’s five-foot swisher resulted in a 22-21 scoreboard flip.

After both teams traded buckets on their ensuing possessions, which pushed Flint’s lead to 24-23 at the 7:30 mark, the Surge posted six points uncontested over the next minute. Harris’ eight-foot jumper, Cassie Rochel’s lay-up and Leah Cotton’s five-foot strike gave St. Louis a 29-24 lead with 6:20 left in the half.

Following five minutes of traded points, the Surge’s advantage was pushed to eight with 1:00 left in the frame with Raven Berry’s reverse lay-up that gave the hostesses a 41-33 edge.

The Monarchs countered with a 6-2 run in the final moments as a pair of three-pointers from Jasmine McCall helped narrow the Surge’s lead to 43-39 at halftime.

A 5-0 Surge run to start the third quarter gave the locals its largest lead at that moment. Following Butler’s bucket at the 8:10 mark, St. Louis sported a 48-39 edge.

To its credit, Flint charged back with a 13-6 run over the next five minutes and inevitably sliced the score to 54-52 with 3:25 left in the third quarter.


Harris hit a trey with 2:40 left to push the Surge’s lead to 57-52 but the Monarchs followed with six uncontested. Following Natasha Morris’ lay-up with 1:40 left, Flint manufactured a 58-57 lead change.

St. Louis regained the advantage with one minute left as Carter’s no-look pass to Butler in the paint resulted in an easy lay-up and a 59-58 lead for the Surge that concluded scoring in the third.

Back-to-back St. Louis buckets launched the fourth quarter. Following Harris’ floater with 8:15 left, the Surge sported a five-point lead, 63-58.

The five-point differential was maintained for a good stretch of the final frame. St. Louis held a 73-68 lead with 4:00 remaining following Butler’s two-foot put back.

The Monarchs then proceeded to make its strongest declaration of the evening with an 8-0 run over the next two minutes. Accented by McCall’s three pointer, Flint regained the lead, 76-73, with 2:05 left in the contest.

The Surge countered with back-to-back buckets. Carter’s lay-up at the 1:55 mark whittled the deficit to one point and Harris’ put back with 1:06 remaining gave the Surge a 77-76 lead change.


After both teams came up empty on their next respective possessions, the Surge’s Berry was fouled while shooting with six seconds remaining. She converted the front half of her free throws to give St. Louis a 78-76 lead.

On the ensuing inbounds, the Monarchs raced up the court and McCall forced a shot that tickled twine with three seconds left that tied the score, 78-78.

That would be how the scoreboard read after regulation. The stalemate after forty minutes of competitive play now added an extra frame of five.

“It’s a new ball game,” said Surge coach Tony Condra of the team’s mindset heading into overtime. “Every possession counts.”

Possessions were equal early and the game was tied, 80-80, with 3:40 left in overtime. Defensive pressure ensued from both squads, but the Surge was able to grab an 82-80 lead following Butler’s 10-foot jumper with 1:30 left.

The Monarchs’ Nya Jordan was fouled with :58 remaining and narrowed the game to one point with a converted free throw, 82-81.

The Surge responded with its biggest shot of the night as Butler connected with a three-pointer with :32 left that gave the hostesses an 85-81 lead.


Late free throws made off of Monarch fouls helped St. Louis outscore Flint, 9-3, in overtime to collect the 87-81 victory that pushed the team’s overall record to 10-1.

Four Surge players scored double-digits, paced by Butler’s 25 points.

Harris, who finished with 16 in the ledger, felt that the gut check helped Surge prepare for Saturday’s national tournament launch. Three straight wins in Greenville against the WBCBL’s elite will result in back-to-back championships.

“Going into these games, it will be a battle,” she said. “Probably every game. Whether it’s ugly or not, we need to get wins by any means necessary.”

Welcome New Head Coach Nicole Randolph

Coach Randolph during the 2015 WABA Championship ceremony

FLINT, MI – As the season winds down, the Flint Monarchs have a new sideline leader.

Former Monarchs coach Bill Schnorenberg abruptly resigned on Friday, July 17 and his assistant Nicole Randolph has been promoted to interim head coach for the remainder of the year.

Monarchs president and general manager Drey Wynn says he was delighted to announce the decision.

"She brings a wealth of knowledge as a former semi-pro and a NCAA Division I basketball player, assistant coach and head coach at the high school and semi-pro levels," Wynn said. "Also, she is familiar with this wonderful group of players who have rallied around her to show their support in her new role."

Randolph played collegiately at Indiana and Oakland Universities. Prior to the Monarchs, she worked as an assistant varsity coach at Detroit Country Day High School and as head coach of the Detroit Blackhawks' semi-pro basketball team.

According to Wynn, Schnorenberg was placed on a one-game suspension before he stepped down due to allegations that he broke a team rule.

"Accountability is a major part of the Monarch philosophy, if a player or coach cannot accept accountability for their actions on or off the court, they will not be a member of the Monarchs basketball club, plain and simple," Wynn stated.

"Ms. Randolph is very hardworking, reliable, and trustworthy and is not the type of person to run from accountability."

Schnorenberg wouldn't go into detail about his decision to leave but did state that he and Wynn "had a difference in opinion in philosophy of the team and our differences became irreconcilable."

"These things never have good timing," he added.

The Monarchs are the defending champions in the Women's American Basketball Association. The franchise became the city's first professional women's basketball team by joining the league last season.

The WABA isn't the premier hoops league for women but ladies do get paid and it's run professionally. Franchises in Springfield, Chicago, Minnesota, Milwaukee and New England all compete in the league. Sonya Nichols is the CEO of the WABA, which relaunched last summer.

Flint (4-0) rallied to beat the Milwaukee Aces 72-63 on Saturday, July 18 at Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, Wis.

Former Marquette star and Flint native Arlesia Morse hit 16 of her game-high 26 points in the victory and former Michigan State guard Jasmine Thomas, another Flint native, added 16 points, 15 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 steals.

On Saturday, July 25 at 7 p.m., Flint will travel to the University of Missouri-St. Louis' Mark Twain Center in a game that is being billed as "the Battle of the Champions." Flint will take on the St. Louis Surge in a non-league game. The Surge are the defending 2014 WBCBL National Champions.

Milwaukee, WI- July 19, 2015–The Flint Monarchs rallied to beat the Milwaukee Aces 72-63 on Saturday July 18, 2015 at Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, WI.

This was the most critical game of the season because the winner would have claimed rights to host the National Championship game,” stated Flint Monarchs President and General Manager Drey Wynn, “and we knew the eyes of the WABA basketball world were upon Coach Nicole Randolph, I’m proud of how she coached this team.”
The Monarchs (4-0) got off to a slow start that later resulted in the Aces (2-2) leading at the end of 1st quarter 16-13.  But Arlesia Morse (Flint, MI/Marquette University) sharp shooting broke open the game in the 2nd quarter, she hit 16 of her game high 26 points in that quarter alone making 4 of 5 three point field attempts.
This was a very physical, mentally challenging victory and it all finally seemed to click for this group of young ladies,” stated Mr. Wynn, “the crowd was into the game, talking trash to our players but it actually fueled them to fight harder to pull off the victory.”
Jasmine Thomas recorded 16 points, 15 rebounds, 7 assists and 2 steals, Nya Jordan posted 10 points and 12 rebounds and Jasmine McCall finished with 14 points, 5 assists, 6 steals and 3 rebounds.
The Flint Monarchs next opponent is the St. Louis Surge at 7pm on Saturday July 25, 2015 at the University of Missouri-St. Louis Mark Twain Center. This game is being advertised as “the Battle of the Champions” as the Surge is the defending 2014 WBCBL National Champions.

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.
