Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

From Q, a WBHOF heads up:
Vote for Lade Majic for the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame

The undisputed Queen of Show Basketball, Majic directs the Harlem Ambassadors as lead show player, head coach and Vice President of Basketball Operations. This future Hall-of-Famer has played more show basketball games than any woman in history and has performed with the Ambassadors in 49 states and 19 foreign countries. This legendary performer is returning to the court for the 2009-10 Harlem Ambassadors' season after being sidelined for most of the previous campaign with a torn Achilles tendon injury.

A native of New Jersey, she was the Most Valuable Player of the New Jersey State Girls Basketball Tournament while leading Clifford J. Scott High School to the state title. Majic starred collegiately at the University of Missouri where she was a member of the Tigers' Conference Championship and NCAA tournament qualifying teams. Prior to joining the Ambassadors, she played professionally in Israel and also toured with another “Harlem” show team.
