FLINT MONARCHS ROSTER/SCHEDULE RELEASE FOR 2021
FLINT, MI – The Flint Monarchs women's professional basketball will return for another season, but temporarily play home games at Macomb Community College’s Sports & Expo Center in Warren, MI.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our ability to secure a venue in the Flint area with a regulation full court and shot clock,” said Drey Wynn, Flint Monarchs president and general manager. “Most local venues are closed until the fall, are undergoing renovations or increased their rental pricing by more than 50%.”
The Flint Monarchs have scheduled seven regular season games and open with back-to-back home games Saturday, July 10 against the St. Louis Surge and Sunday, July 11 against the defending GWBA champions Wisconsin Glo. Start time for all home games is 4pm.
Flint competes in the Global Women's Basketball Association (GWBA) and ended the 2019 season 4-4 overall, losing the GWBA championship game to the Wisconsin Glo 78-80.
Flint's current roster includes key local returnees Sparkle Taylor, Brandie Baker, Jasmine Thomas and Morgan Neeley. The roster also includes key newcomers Stasha Carey, Caitlin Jenkins and Rachel Hollivay from Rutgers University; Jensen Caretti and Ameryst Alston from Ohio State University and Monique Reid from the University of Louisville.
“I have assembled a talented roster of players from across the country and nothing less than a championship will be a disappointment,” said Flint Monarchs president and general manager Drey Wynn.
