WARNER ROBINS - The Miami Heat fell short of their bid for an NBA championship but one Central Georgia team with the same name is looking to do just the opposite and bring home the trophy.

The Warmer Robins Lady Heat are heading to the Youth Basketball Of America national championships in Florida this weekend in only their first year of existence.

The 9-10 year olds represent the fourth grade state champions of Georgia with two other top 3 tournament finishes under their belt.

And these players are ready to compete with the best.

Coach Deion Nelson along with his assistants Tracy Joseph and Zach Walker will leave for Orlando Saturday morning with the team of 11 girls.
