Over the weekend, the Dallas Diesel women's basketball team stopped for a brief visit at Conway's McGee Center for a shoot-around practice. The Lady Diesel are in the final stretch of a 15-game college exhibition tour, in which, they are currently 11-2.
A former Dallas Diesel player named "Genai Walker" may ring a bell with most residents around the Central Arkansas area. Walker was a standout player for the University of Central Arkansas Lady Bears and retired from playing professionally in 2014.
The current Lady Diesel roster features players from across the US; North Carolina, Louisiana, Ohio, and Texas, and some international talent from Egypt and Switzerland. The team is coached by former Conway High/ University of Central Arkansas standout Willie McCray.

The WBCBL 2015 National Tournament featured the most exciting women’s basketball that anyone could imagine on one court. This tournament was packed with serious competition from across North America. The atmosphere was energized by fans being kept on the edges of their seats, witnessing countless full-court highlights worthy of Sports Center’s Top 10.
After an entertaining first round of quarter final games, each contest of the semifinal came down to the wire. Semi-final victors and victims were literally determined by the number of mistakes, big-time plays, missed opportunities and buzzer-beaters.
The championship match-up came down to the Mid-West Powerhouse, defending 2014 WBCBL National Champion St. Louis Surge (13-1) and the second year team, the Carolina’s Super-Hot and buzzing Charlotte Invasion (14-0).
The Charlotte Invasion came out hot and stayed hot to withstand the power of the St. Louis Surge and to capture the title of 2015 WBCBL National Champions.
