Freshmen Keep Winning at Syracuse Pre-Nationals



2014 syracuse champs 9th

The 9th grade team took 1st place at Syracuse Pre-Nationals going 5-0.

The championship game was a true test of this team's heart – they were down the whole game, scoring only 7 points in the first half and overcoming a 10 point deficit with 2 minutes remaining in the game. Key steals, made possible by stingy man defense by Nicole and Sarah, got them back to within 2 points with 30 seconds remaining. They were able to tie the game with 18 seconds left and withstood a last second shot by the other team. In OT Skylar’s 3 pointer from the corner with 40 seconds remaining put the girls up by 3 and they never looked back. 

The ladies had two second half comeback wins in pool play on Saturday as well. Champions win the tough ones!

Buffalo Summer Classic Varsity Champs

The 5/6th grade girls capped a fine season for Coach Walker with another championship. They went 3-1, avenging their opening loss in pool play to the Buffalo City Rocks 6th team by besting the Rocks in the semifinals. The Truth also handled the 5th grade City Rocks in the championship game.

Our 9th grade City Rocks team went 3-0 in pool play. They fell in the semifinals to the Flamborough Fire 47-46 on a three at the buzzer. A tough loss, but they weren't done yet... more later. The Fire went on to take the championship

The varisty girls bracket was loaded with Truth teams. The Buffalo 10th and ROC ICC Truth  9/10 teams competed. The depleted 11th grade City Rocks team went 1-2, while missing several players. A gang of 6 laced 'em up and got their win on Sunday with a nice second half performance despite the short bench.

The Buffalo ICC Truth 11th grade squad met the Rochester ICC Truth "12th grade" squad in the finals. The Rochester squad went undefeated on their championship run in Amy and Diona's final AAU tournament. Amy, Diona and Alex (on Saturday - she had to fly off to orientation at UMASS on Sunday) joined with juniors Ari and Adri (who sprained and ankle on Saturday) and a tough group from the 9th grade squad who competed and won (8-1) in two brackets - Brie, Khamera, Sarah, Aubrey and Shania (on Saturday) stepped it up, especially in some very physical battles on Sunday. It was beautiful to see Amy and Diona pass the torch to the younger girls and they all stepped up and carried it at various times. In the very near future, we'll be looking to see the 9th graders deliver similar peformances without their older sisters.

It is a milestone for this group of young ladies who scored in the 70's for the first time this season in a couple of the games. One of the referees commented that they were a great team, and we would have to agree. They have come a long way since the beginning of the season. All of the girls did a great job this weekend!

Grade 9 - 2nd Place

Grade 10 - 2nd Place - The ICC 10th grade team broke a record of scoring 100 points in there second place game.( the first ICC team to achieve this) Once again the "wolf pack" played strong and showed that they can achieved their goals as a team. Very proud of these young ladies as they never give up and continue to improve their game!

Grade 11 - Went 1-2 taking their two loses on Sunday when they competed with only 5 girls. Abby, Brooke, Dana, Deja and Kelsey sucked it up with no complaints, no excuses and hustled for 80 minutes. At 70 minutes into their day's workout, and on the verge of getting blown out, they came to the bench and said "coach we want to go to full court pressure". They started cutting the gap and for the next ten minutes, played some of their best ball of the day! Gutsy performance ladies!

The 11th Grade City Rocks team finished runner up, keeping it all in the family, to the ICC Truth Buffalo 11th grade squad.

And the 12th Grade team brought home a championship going 3-1 and knocking off the host Laker squad by 18 in the championship avenging a 1 point loss in the opening game.

"Wolfpack" Places in Pittsburgh



The weekend of April 26-27 some of the ICC Truth ladies headed to Pittsburgh to hit the hardwood. The 10th grade ICC Truth girls AKA "The Wolf Pack" took second place in the Pittsburgh Hoop Fest.

In addition, Breyonna Cason recently signed as well. Bre will take her game from East High School to play at Niagara County Community College. Our explosive 5'6" guard will play on scholarship for Coach Nate Beutel in Region III of the NJCAA.

Amy Hasenauer will replace her red, white and black Hilton Cadet uniform for the purple and white of the College of the Holy Cross Crusaders and play for Coach Bill Gibbons, in the Patriot League. Coach Gibbons plans for the 6'2" forward to roam from the arc to the low block knocking down shots while she pursues a BS in Mathematics and Secondary Education Certification as well as developing a fine New England accent in Worcester, MA.

Adila Gathers will move from Buffalo's Tapestry Charter School to Loretto, PA and join the Red Flash of St. Francis University in the Northeastern Conference. When the 5'11" wing is not flying all over the court in Coach Joe Haigh's ultra-high speed game, Adila will study Physical Therapy.

Rachel Merrill was the first of the four to pick a direction, her's is to Burlington, VT. Rachel will finish up her career at Owego Free Academy and then join the University of Vermont Catamounts. The 6'3" forward will be working in the paint in the America East Conference for coach Lori Gear McBride. Rachel plans to study design and marketing.

Cierra Dillard is finishing up 5 years of varsity ball at Gates-Chili High School, since starting as an 8th grader. The 5'9" guard will make her next move to the University of Massachusetts. Cierra will study Communications while playing for the MinuteWOmen in the A10 for coach Sharon Dawley. A long time Warrior/Revolution teammate Cierra played with the City Rocks this season.

We hope to see Cee and Dee competing against each other in A10 Championship games in the coming years, not to mention Amy and Cee competing for the D1 school bragging rights in Massachusetts!

Best of luck to the four FIVE SIX and the girls that look to follow them!

The ROC REV/ICC 16 U team opened their season with a solid performance taking the title at Ohio Basketball's Buffalo Tip Off Classic. The Ladies went 6-0 on the way to the championship. The key wins were both over the SMAC Elite. A 48-33 win on Saturday night gave the REV the B-Pool 1st seed.

The REV showed a bit of evergthing from their well rounded games - some lock down team D, Sheila, Deja and Sam with a little Kara style Black-eye D, runnin' and gunnin', clouds darkened up and it started raining 3's at times many thanks to Dee and Adila in the championship, Kori driving and dishing or swishing, Jess pounding the boards and Amy with the No, No, No, Not Today (or was that Ricky and Rodney).

ROC REV 4 Contributes to YMCA Rochester Revolution 16U Title at Buffalo JamFest



The ROC REV answered the call to help out long time Revolution and Warrior teammate Ashley Oriel and her YMCA Rochester Revolution team. The ROC REV beefed up the Y's short roster with four players and contributed to winning the Buffalo JamFest 16U title.

The ROC REV players included Amy, Diona, Adila and Deja. Amy had to go on a college visit and was not in the championship picture, but was in full shot blocking (and making) mode throughout the tournament. Deja contributed 3 pointers and a few lay ups along with killer defense. Diona was the floor general setting up everyone for easy buckets, while making sure to score when the team needed her to change roles. Adila was a delight to watch, shooting, passing and pushing the ball up court when she wanted to. All in all a great experience for all of the girls who were able to go.

Revolution Closes Out 2012 with Two Wins



The ladies of the YMCA Rochester Revolution closed out the 2012 AAU season in fine fashion. In the morning opener the Rev downed the Mid Atlantice Heat 63-28, with a dominating performance. The season ended in an all out war with the Mid Penn Motion. The game led some to believe that whereabouts of two former NFL replacement officals were known. The Rev were shooting 1 and 1 with 8:34 remiaining in the first half and the Motion were not far behind. The Rev surged to a big first half lead, but the Motion inched to within 5 or 6 in the second half. In the end the Rev beat the Motion into submission for a 75-63 win.

The Rochester Revolution finished their 2012 national showcase tournament tour with a 21-2 record. Beyond the wins and loses, the young ladies honed their skills, gained confidence and demonstrated their will to win together. They have earned the right to be quite proud of their accomplishments and the impression they have left on the college coaches evaluating their play. And now they will get back in the gym and prepare to push their games to the next level.

A fine achievement to round out their July national tournament schedule. The team went 8-1 at the USJN 17U Championship!

The ladies opened the day by avenging their only previous loss this month by defeating the Drill 4 Skill team 60-45. As opposed the the game of runs in Pittsburgh earlier this month, the Rev took control from the start and never gave it back. Solid on ball defense kept the Drill squad from shooting the lights out like they did in Pittsburgh.

The semifinals pitted the Rev against the defending champion NYC Lady Bulldogs 17U team. The game was a tight struggle with the Rev down 36-32 at the half and trailing for much of the game. But the Revolution battled on and eventually wrested a 62-59 victory and a spot in the championship game. Link to NY Post Article

The finals saw the Revolution matched with the Maryland Grizzlies. The first 7 minutes of the game was back and forth with the Rev holding a 1 point edge. The Grizzles then went on a run to open a 32-18 halftime lead. The Revolution battled back in the second half to pull ahead 38-37 with just over 5 minutes left. However, the Grizzlies weren't done as they finished off a 52-46 win over the Revolution.

The Revolution finished their July national showcase tournament tour with a fine 17-2 record, an achievement to be proud of.

In the evening game the Revolution put their game back together on both ends of the floor. The ladies rolled out some intense defense and ball was moving on offense. The Pittsburgh Rockers came to compete and the game was full of great action. The Revolution took a 37-26 lead into halftime and made another run midway through the second half to break the game open in a 74-51 win.

The Revolution will close out pool play against the undefeated Carolina Force to determine the first and second seeds out of the pool. The playoff round will begin at 5:00 in the Nova Dome.

Revolution Opens USJN with Two Big Wins



The Rochester Revolution opened up at full throttle in the Nova Dome turning in two big wins. Game one saw the Rev downing the Monica Wright Elite out of Virginia by a score of 70-46. The Elite took an early lead but a Rev unleashed a defensive flurry midway through the first half and took control that they would not relinquish.

In game two the Revolution downed the NJ Shoreshots 53-17 using relentless pressure to shut down the Shoreshot offense and key the Rev running game. It was not a pretty display of basketball in a very physical game but the Rev girls were up to the task all over and down on the floor.

The Revolution family kept Jess in our thoughts and prayers as she continues to battle with an infection that is keeping her out of the gym.

Amy shut down the paint with 9 blocks and the rest of the gang pressured the Elite all over the floor. In the nightcap the Rev followed the same formula and downed the Ohio Lady Jayhawks 65-35 on the main floor at the Kentucky Basketball Academy.

Tomorrow will bring on the South Jersey Blitz and a rematch with the Lady Phoenix Odom squad from last year's River City Nationals which was one of the most entertaining games of the 2011 campaign.

Rev Split on Day 2 at the Summer Exposure Championship



The Revolution opened the day with a familiar opponent, Baseline Elite from Buffalo. The game was a back and forth contest from the start until the Revolution opened up a bit of a lead in the closing minutes. Payton Jackson came off the bench in the second half and hit a couple of big 3's that were key in the victory.

In the late game the Revolution took on Drills 4 Skill. The Drill squad opened an early double digit lead in what became a game of runs. Each time the Rev reeled the Skill in the Skill would make another run. The Skill made the final run and took the win 69-59 while playing a nearly flawless game. The Revolution ladies showed their mettle and kept battling until the buzzer. The game was a lesson in maintaining mental and physical intensity for every second on the 32 minutes that the Rev ladies will take with them. Yet even in defeat the Rev put on a pretty good show.

Revolution Open 2012 SEC with a KO



The YMCA Rochester Revolution opened their July swing on the summer circuit with a 60-38 win over the Tri-County Thunder at LaRoche College in Pittsburgh, PA. The Revolution came out firing on all cylinders and put a gap on the Thunder and never looked back. The Thunder threw everything they had but the Rev absorbed all the head shots and body blows and kept hammering their way to the hoop. It was a solid win for the whole squad with everyone contributing at both ends of the floor.

Revolution Place Second in15U and 16U Slippery Slamm

The Revolution stretched to the limits this past weekend at Slippery Rock University. A hearty squad of 12 girls took on the challenge of trying to win titles in both 15U and 16U brackets at the Summer Slippery Slamm. Both Squads took first seed in pool play. On Saturday the 16U girls opened with at 44-21 win over the Cavegirls. Amy, Dana and Coach Dee exited early to join the 15U girls for a 58-34 win over the SMAC Attack. 4:30PM brought on both squads playing at once in different gyms. Amy joined the 15U squad to provide size and a 6th body (and a 6'2" back up point guard) and led them to a 54-32 win over the PA Storm for the B pool first seed, while the 16U gang of six took a 62-39 win over Rock Solid.

On Sunday the Revolution 16U six cranked it up in a 65-26 win over the Western PA Bruins. The girls were firing on all cyclinders in a well played game by all. The win gave the 16U Rev the B pool first seed. Amy and Diona exited quickly to join the 15U squad for their semifinal game. The 15U team took a very physical win over the SMAC PA Elite. The girls were running on fumes with Allie sitting with a bloody nose, Sedria fouled out with Amy and Diona needing to get to the 16U game. The 15Us finished up with minutes to spare as Amy and Diona took to the road between Morrow and ARC gyms to join the 16U squad for their semifinal.

The 16U semifinal was a good battle with the Western Reserve All Stars. The Rev with a short bench battled to a 76-70 defeat. The girls showed a lot of pride and guts after being down big midway through the second half, they pulled the WRAS's back but ran out of people that could foul in the closing minutes.

The 15U gang of five - Arianna, Adrianna, Deja, Sedria and Allie Diehl - fell in the Finals of the 15U playoffs.

Battle on the Border Champs

The Rev turned in 55-19 and 59-26 victories in the two games on there way to a first round bye in Sunday's bracket play. The Rev turned up the heat with sticky D spearheaded by the infantry - Christina, Deja, Adrianna and Arianna pressuring all over the court and their big friends controlling the passing lanes as well as the air space around both hoops.

The Semifinal game versus the Niagara Rapids brought much of the same on a 60-28 win for the Revolution and a spot in the finals with the Finger Lakes Elite. The Revolution took a 62-48 victory in the finals against a solid Finger Lakes squad. The Rev held the lead thoughout, but the Elite kept making runs with some timely shooting and fine passing in the paint. Just as last week, the Revolution got contributions from the entire team leading to another well earned tournament championship.

Revolution Close as Quaker City 16U Runner Up



The Rochester Revolution closed out the season with a loss to the Philly Triple Threat in an exciting game. The Rev started slowly and fell behind, but reeled in the Threat to take a 34-29 lead at the half. Philly made another run at the start of the second half and eventually opened a 10 point lead. The Rev would not fold and closed the gap to 4 on a three pointer around a minute to go. With 5 fouls to go to get to 1 and 1 nothing was in their favor in the battle with the clock. The Rev ended on the short side of a 62-56 game against a fine Philly Triple Threat team.

Saturday, July 30
YMCA Rochester Revolution Set to Play for Quaker City Challenge 16U Title



The YMCA Rochester Revolution opened the round robin championship round of the Quaker City Challenge with a solid 65-44 victory over the Lehigh Valley Showtime. The Rev again rolled out their agressive D which triggered the running game to propel them to the win. The Showtime squad played a nice game draining the open shots when they got them. But in the end the Rev's relentless D wore them down.

After a week on the road the Rev got a taste of home in the night cap, taking on the NY Revolution out of Buffalo. With a Revolution victory a certainty, the YMCA Rochester Revolution cranked up the RPM's after a slow start and maintained their perfect western NY record by defeating the NY Rev 61-41.

The Rochester Revolution will take on the Philly Triple Threat for the Quaker City Challenge 16U title on Sunday



Saturday, July 30
Philadelphia Continues to Be the Land of the Revolution



The Revolution took on the TriState Tarheels and FBC Defenders in the second day of the Quaker City Challenge. In the opening game of the day the Revolution defense stuck to the Tarheels and keyed a 55-44 victory. Against a solid shooting Tarheels squad the Rev needed to crank up the defensive intensity and found that extra bit of energy that has been missing.

The nightcap saw the Rev take on the FBC Defenders. The arrival of coach Dee with Kori and Tasia added some depth that was needed against an agressive and strong Defenders squad. The Revolution came up winners again 68-56. The key again was consistant high energy play from the whole team that was necessary to combat the Defenders full throttle style.

The Revolution took the top spot in their pool and will move on to the championship round tomorrow at 6:30 and 9:55 PM. Hopefully the late evening play will continue to bring out the best fo the ladies.

Revolution Open Quaker City Challenge 16U With a Win



The Rochester Revolution opened their final (?) tournament of the season with a solid 51-42 win over the Long Island Silver Bullets. With a 9:30 PM start this writer is not sure either team was firing on all cylinders. All seven Rev girls contributed on both ends of the court and all probably dozed off for a late evening moment here and there giving the Silver Bullets opportunities to get back in, which the Long Islanders made good on.

Revolution Finish Up RCN at 3-2



The Revolution closed out the River City Nationals with a quarter final 52-47 defeat versus the Lady Phoenix Rudd team. The Lady Phoenix played a strong physical defensive game and made the hustle plays to get the win. The Phoenix looked on the verge of running away with the game several times. But the Rev, led by Cierra and Diona, kept their heads in the game and would not fold. The Rev needed to play a perfect game to combat the Phoenix and a couple other participants in the contest. Avoiding some lapses in intensity and mental breakdowns would have allowed the Rev to overcome the solid 16U Lady Phoenix team. Some lessons learned that we will take on to Philadelphia for the Quaker City Challenge.

Rev First in Pool Play at River City Nationals

The Rev opened the second day of the River City Nationals with a very physical game taking a 55-47 win on a late touchdown and 2 point conversion. Maybe it only seemed that way, but a late run of good D and finishing off turnovers iced the victory over the Lady Phoenix Prospect 15's. Both teams played hard in a grind it out, 3 yards and a cloud of dust game.

The Rev went into the final game of pool play needing an 8 point victory over the Lady Phoenix Odom squad (yes there are a lot of Lady Phoenix teams here). The afternoon game was a fine display of BASKETBALL. Both teams put their considerable skills on display with some great end to end action. The Rev put it all out there blood, sweat and tears. With a 6 point lead late in the game Amy took a a hard foul with a shot to the nose. Came to the line for a 1 and 1 and drained the first to open the lead to 7. Cierra pulled down the rebound of the missed second shot and the Rev converted to open a 9 point margin at which point Amy's nose cut loose and left the blood stains on the Randolph-Macon main court. The Rev protected their 9 point margin and took the C pool.

On Wednesday the will face .......... yes, the Lady Phoenix Rudd team in the quarter-finals

Rev Splits Opening Day at River City Nationals

The Revolution took their road show to Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va. for the River City Nationals. The opening game versus the Wake Forest Wizards out of Winston-Salem, NC was a tight back and forth contest. It was a 1 point game with 5.1 seconds to go. The Wizards hit their two foul shots to open a 50-47 lead. Diona's 3 point bomb from 25 feet with defense in her face just rimmed out.

Game two matched the Rev against the Lady Phoenix Dynasty squad out of Greensboro, NC. The Rev found their scrappiness that was missing in game one. Kara's "black eye" D spread throughout the Revolution with Kara, Cee, Dee, She, Jules and Deja pressuring the Phoenix all over the court, Amy swatting shots and Shanell riping down monster boards. Toss in Dee on fire behind the arc and some fine runnin' and gunnin' by all - triggered by the black eye defense - it added up to a 61-36 Revolution win.

The Rev will take on two more Lady Phoenix teams on Tuesday to close out their North Carolina Pool Play.

Revolution Finish Road Trip with 7-3 record

The Rev lead by 31-30 at the half and trailed by 5 going into the last two minutes. The Gym Rats hit their foul shots in the closing minutes and opened a larger gap. The Revolution showed that they belong on the national scene and need to play a steady diet of high level competition. The ladies finished their first July 2011 road trip to the national scene with a 7-3 record. An excellent showing versus top level competition.  All of the ladies should be proud of their accomplishments and learn from the lessons taught by playing high level competion.
