Guru Report: Villanova Incoming Frosh Quinn Gains All-Star MVP Honors: Summer League Opens Tuesday Night

By Mel Greenberg

HAVERFORD -- The two-months long Philadelphia/Suburban NCAA Women’s Summer Basketball League tips off Tuesday night with six games and continues on Thursday at the Kelly Bolish Gym, home of the AAU Renegades in Willow Grove Business Park in Hatboro, Pa.

The closest intersection is Byberry And Davisville Roads with the entrance to the business park off Davisville alongside the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

Meanwhile the Guru on Monday night dropped by the inaugural Philly USA Basketball Girls All City Classic high school doubleheader at Haverford School in which the sophomores and freshmen played the opener followed by the juniors and seniors.

Stats were immediately available but for the basics in the game involving the younger stars the City Team beat the Suburban Team 53-42 with Ursuline Academy (Wilmington, Del.) sophomore Adrianna Hahn named MVP of the suburban team while Neumann Goretti sophomore Siani Martin being named MVP of the City Team.

The game, incidentally, was well attended based on the crowd the Guru observed seated on the one side with the bleachers down.

In the nightgap, the Suburbans got even with a 57-52 victory as incoming Villanova freshman Meghan Quinn, the Gatorade Pennsylvania state player of the year out of Episcopal Academy took MVP honors.

Wilson Area junior Avery Marz on the suburban team took the overall Unselfish player honors.

Cardinal O’Hara junior Aminah Farmer took MVP honors on the City squad while Girard College junior Gmirice Davis on the city squad took the overall award as best defensive player.

Seniors with their future collegiate choices who played in the game besides Quinn were O’Hara’s Shanice Johnson heading for Delaware replacing one of the seven graduated Blue Hens senior – not necessarily WNBA rookie Elena Delle Donne – while Villa Maria Academy’s Lisa Mirarchi is bound for Lehigh and the Academy of Notre Dame duo of Megan McGurk will enroll at Bucknell and Kathleen Fitzpatrick is heading to Saint Joseph’s.

Additionally, Shipley junior Tamesha “Sox” Alexander has already declared for St. John’s on Long Island.

Fitzpatrick will also play in the summer league on Team Hunter Green with the Shields three-sister combo of Shannon (San Diego State ’16), recent Boston College grad Kerri and incoming Saint Joseph’s senior Erin as well as past Hawks and summer league star Katie Kuester.

Hunter Green will play in the Court 1 nightcap at 8:15 p.m. against Team Red, which is featuring a slew of Scranton players and also includes the Lafayette duo of incoming senior Emily Homan and incoming junior Kelly Loughney,
