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.

Guru Adds to Hall of Fame Collection: Summer League Countdown to Launch

By Mel Greenberg

Since the tease at the end of the previous post was written,and for those not connected on twitter @womhoopsguru, facebook or LinkedIn, the Guru was cleared to go public to say that on Oct. 19, though he was never enrolled at the university, he will become a honorary Catholic woman when he becomes part of the second induction class of the Immaculata Athletics Hall of Fame.

The letter cited support of the university and pioneering coverage of women's basketball.

When Immaculata finishes receiving acceptances from other inductees, the university will then make official announcement about the dinner. For those keeping count (chuckle), this is No. 7 (he thinks) for the Guru counting Temple as a member of the NIT men's champion team back in the day. But this one is a special one and the Guru will be making a more formal reaction down the road.

Moving on, Dave Kessler has begun mailing the application registration and letter for the 2013 season of the Philadelphia/Suburban NCAA Women's Summer League Basketball League.

The Guru will reprint the letter below and adds that transfer students going to a new school do not count against the two-player limit in the same manner as freshman.

So St. Joe for example, could have two activies per teams in the league but also on any particular team could also have incoming freshmen and transfer students.

And as mentioned the Guru will cover the league at his PhilahoopsW site instead of here for a better presentation. The link is in a previous post but he will post and tweet it when actual coverage begins with the May 29th draft.

David will always mention the site in the newsletter but may take a bit until he changes his mental gears on the reference (wink). but will tweet and also note here when things are posted so you won't miss anything.

Here's the letter. If you haven't played and are not on his list you can either email the Guru poll416@gmail.com and he'll forward back the attachments or contact David directly -- all his information is in the letter below but while you are here the email for him is deucedbk@comcast.net.

Site: Kelly Bolish Gymnasium (home of the AAU “Renegades”)
2950 Turnpike Drive

(Guru note: Snack bar very good and cheap and parking also exists around back which is useful on a rainy night.)

Playing dates: Tuesday and Thursday evenings beginning Tuesday June 18. Depending on the number of teams, there may be 1 or 2 Wednesday dates. as well. Game times are 7:00 & 8:15 P.M.

This is a draft league. Players can form teams, but cannot come into the league with a full squad. The league needs the flexibility to assign players to each team.

Division I players (except incoming freshmen) are required to submit a letter of permission from their Athletic Director to the League Director or they will not be permitted to play. Letters can be submitted:

by e-maill, through regular mail, or delivered in person.

THIS MUST BE DONE BEFORE THE PLAYER’S FIRST GAME!

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being stolen? I'd truly
appreciate it.
