And my family & I were able to make it to both games at home in Detroit. You and the team have made Detroit very "proud" and thank you for a wonderful season, a hard working and caring group of young ladies that represented our city with pride and respect. Please, please, please let us keep them forever!!! Good luck in the future to you all and many more 'CHAMPIONSHIPS' God Bless.�

You helped promote women's basketball and you helped promote women's participation in the sport. Thanks and congratulations!�
