WI Fastbreak Select 17U AAU team, coached by Paul Biddick also took part in the recent "Battle of the Programs" in Chicago.

The previous WI Fastbreak Select 17U team consisted of girls who are class of 2009. The Fastbreak Select 17 group sent to Chicago is a newly put together team for the 2009 summer season, that had never practiced together prior to taking the court at 9:15 am Saturday. The seven WI Fastbreak girls beat a team from Illinois by 40 points, 64-24. They then went on to beat a full squad of WI Playground Warriors 48-23 in the semis. The only reason they did not play the championship game was that four of the seven Fastbreak girls had Homecoming activities that evening back in Wisconsin.
