Runnin' Rebels get redemption at Showtime

SUWANEE, Ga. - One of basketball's best qualities is that redemption is offered around every corner. Just ask the Lady Runnin' Rebels, out of Havertown, Penn., who, on Thursday claimed the 16U Showtime Nationals title.

Just Monday, the Runnin' Rebels were watching the championship game of the Blue Chip USA Invitational, an event staged by their coach, Bill McDonough. One of the heavy pre-tournament favorites, the Runnin Rebels were upset in the quarterfinals by a team from Michigan that was eliminated in the next round.
