The MN Stars Lady Cats won the Best of the Midwest Tournament by first toasting Madison, WI Bulls Elite 43-31 and then taking care of the Lady Lightening Gold 38- 26 in the championship game. This is the fourth time this Summer the Cats have reached the finals in a National tournament and the second time they've walked away with the Championship.

Tyisha Smith-Mpls. South & Brianna Williams -Hopkins were both selected to the all-tournament team by Tournament coordinator Mac Irvin.

MN Stars Martin reached the championship game but was overwhelmed by Maywood, IL Dribblers 59-38. MSM finished runner up with a 5 - 1 tournament record.

IBCA Blue played KC Lady Pioneers in the Battle of the Plains in Lincoln. The game was competitive for the first half as the contest went back and forth. The game was tied at half time, but KC Lady Pioneers came out shooting threes, must have hit 7 in the 2nd half. The Blues had a dry spell in scoring and was lost 65-40. The KC Lady Pioneers went on the the championship game to win the title in the high school division.

Here are some IBCA photos in the Battle of the Plains with Red, White and Blue teams. Also here are some photos from the Kearney and Chicago tournaments.

The Breakdown Fall League will now be at Bloomington Kennedy instead of Lakeville South. Due to the amount of teams that will be participating and interest level, we need to have the 8 wood courts. Becker is remaining the same. Interested teams should contact us right away if they are planning to participate. 9th, SO/JV, and Varsity divisions.

Also, we will be running a 7th and 8th Grade Fall League in STMA HS and Middle School. This is also at the request of many organizations. Both League will be sponsored by the Minnesota T-Wolves and Lynx.
