Annual Big Five Women's Clinic Set

By Mel Greenberg

While some of the Guru's blogger friends are taking advantage of the short gap between the end of the WNBA season/FIBA World Championships until the start of the collegiate season, the Guru will keep going, though some days there will be nothing in the way of breaking news.

He remains on the WNBA watch and is checking with some moles who attended the seat-selection night Tuesday in Newark, N.J., at the Prudential Center where the New York Liberty will play their home games the next three summers during the renovation of Madison Square Garden.

A request to take in the event and even pick out his own seat on press row was turned aside at Fort Liberty, officials saying it was a subscribers-only invitation and that perhaps something for the media will be held near the start of next season.

However, some subscribers are also correspondents for well-read blogs and websites so there will probably be some account of the evening at those sites by the time you are reading this Wednesday morning.


Tbe original intent of this post, besides a quick update of the lockdown mode at Fort Liberty in the wake of longtime general manager Carol Blazejowski's ouster, was to make people in the area here aware of the annual Big 5 women's clinic that benefits Coaches vs. Cancer.

All the Big Five women's teams and Drexel -- their coaching staffs and player roster -- are on the scene for several hours conducting drills and seminars.

The event will once again be held at St. Joseph's Hagan Arena, now in its second year since its sparkling renewal of the facility formally called Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse.

You can go directly to the St. Joe's website for signup forms, but here is some information that the Guru has cut and pasted into here from the Hawks' internet home. -- Mel
