Womhoops Guru

Mel Greenberg covered college and professional women’s basketball for the Philadelphia Inquirer, where he worked for 40 plus years. Greenberg pioneered national coverage of the game, including the original Top 25 women's college poll. His knowledge has earned him nicknames such as "The Guru" and "The Godfather," as well as induction into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in 2007.

Phooey

ITHACA, N.Y. --
So here I was, sitting in my hotel room after covering the Penn-Cornell men's game for the Inquirer ... in the middle of writing a post wishing Erin a happy birthday and writing something about the Duke-Maryland game and a little teaser (as it's called on the print side) about the blog ...

And I look on the site and all of a sudden there's a post from Mel blowing the cover off it all. Oh well. But I can throw in a bit of an extra angle on the Duke-Maryland game, which Mel is fortunate to be attending given that it's the seventh sellout for a women's game in Cameron Indoor Stadium history.

(As an aside, this writer has been in that storied venue before, having covered last season's Penn-Duke men's game for the Philadelphia Daily News as well as Penn's student newspaper. I have a feeling that the buzz among the Cameron Crazies tomorrow will be a nice sight to behold, given the ferocity of the recent rivalry between Duke and Maryland on the men's side. Probably better than it was when I was there, which was an early-December game against a non-conference opponent of relatively little consequence by Duke standards.)

Anyway. The 12:30 p.m. ET showdown will air on your local Fox Sports Net affiliate, but it will not air in the Philadelphia region. The relevant station, Comcast SportsNet, will be fulfilling its Atlantic 10 contract instead with a men's game between Temple and Massachusetts. Now of course, the Owls are of some consequence to the Philadelphia college hoops scene, even in their down years, so that decision is understandable. Nonetheless, it's too bad for fans of the women's game, not least because two of Maryland's players -- Crystal Langhorne and Laura Harper -- are from the Philadelphia area.

Finally, there will indeed be more news to come on the subject of the aforementioned new Philly.com blog. I'll let Mel handle the media relations side of the thing, and that will all take place Monday.
