URM Men Win Championship Game!

Congratulations to the URM Men’s Basketball Team on being the Skid Row Basketball Champions for the 2009-2010 season!

“Every member of the team played in the championship game,” says Coach Carl Williams.  “Our team went through early growing pains plus we lost two key players as well.  We never stopped praying and trying to win every game.  My main goal was to play individuals who commit to the philosophy of team.  I always tell my team, “Never give up and never quit.” Even my young sons Zachary and Izayah know that quote very well.  In life, things may start out rough but God has a plan for your life. The plan can only materialize if you never give up and never quit.”

Championship Game 

The championship game was held Wednesday, January 20th at 7:00pm here at Union Rescue Mission’s gym.  Although the opposing “Skid Row Street Ballers” played a tough game, our guys outplayed them for a 56 -44 win!


URM Men’s Basketball Team Beats Out Blue Byou

Last Wednesday night’s basketball game was one for the record books. Union Rescue Mission’s Men’s Basketball team played an exciting game against last year’s championship team, Blue Byou. Our team demonstrated heart and a never give up attitude to pull of the win! 

Playoff Game 1-13-10 

Both teams played their best game of the season, with the lead changing constantly. We were down by six points with just two minutes remaining in the game. Then, we made two 3-point baskets to tie the game. With the ball in Blue Byou’s hands, everyone was on the edge of their seats! In the end, our free-throws and man-on-man defense proved to be the difference in the game. The final score was URM: 51 and Blue Byou: 50.

This Wednesday, January 20th, we will play in the Championship Game against the “Street Ballers” at 7:00pm. Everyone is welcome to come out and show your support!
