The Renegades built a halftime lead of seven points and they were ahead for the majority of the game. However, the Wolves did not give up and were able to cut the lead to two with 10 minutes remaining behind consecutive three pointers by Josh Pappas.

The Renegades then regained control by scoring 10 points unanswered and never looked back after that.

According to Renegades player Jabari Bradford, the main key to their success was their teamwork and work ethic. “Me and my team, we worked hard and we earned it. We all couldn’t have done this without each other,” said Bradford.

The Renegades finished the season with a record of 9-1 and ended their season on a seven game win streak.

Their leading scorer was Brian Okoye.

The team plans on coming back next year and attempting to win another championship. “We’re going for ring number three,” said Bradford.
