Philly Summer League Begins In Suburbs

By Mel Greenberg

Despite some hold-your-breath moments involved in this year's startup, the annual summer league run by the department of recreation will begin Tuesday night at the Kelly Bolish Gym, home of the AAU renegades in Hatboro.

Though allegedly retired, David Kessler returns to run league play again, this year on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the new site after previously predominantly using Northeast High in recent seasons.

Game times are 7 p.m. and 8:15 p.m.

To give shorthanded directions based on those given the Guru -- having a GPS will help a lot -- if you are coming down from Northeast Philly, use Byberry Road west to get to the intersection of Davisville Road, which is west of the Byberry and 2nd Street Pike (aka Route 232) intersection.

Davisville Road also comes out of Willow Grove and for some of you taking the Pennsylvania Turnpike to Route 611 and heading north to find a street over to Davisville could be helpful.

When reaching Davisville, make a left from Byberry and then a right at the first light. The commish says it winds into an industrial park and the gym is easy to find.

Application for certification was made to the NCAA Friday May 7 and approval was received last Friday at 4 p.m. on a summer day that was four days before the league was set to start, according to those familiar with the process.

The NCAA also advised that the organization's brand cannot appear on the name of the league as in past years because it is not an NCAA-run event.

When the Guru gets a printout he'll be able to read the rosters better. But the Big Five past and present is well represented as well as Drexel, Holy Family, West Chester, Philadelphia University, Lehigh, along with other area schools. Princeton, Harvard, James Madison, and St. Bonaventure are also represented.

That is it for now -- the Guru has WNBA games on tap this week on league nights so he will appear next week.
