Last week, Madison Square Garden was home to the reboot of a 40-year old game that started women’s basketball on its path to high-profile college and pro sport. Fans who went to see UConn play St. Johns in the 9th Annual Maggie Dixon Classic were treated to Queens and Immaculata Colleges facing off in a rematch of the first women’s basketball game that was ever played at Madison Square Garden, and some say a defining point in women’s basketball. Past WNBA President (and past M2W® speaker) Donna Orender, who was a freshman on the Queens team and played in that historic game, was on hand, as were M2W® friends Hilary Shaev (WNBA Marketing VP) and Laurel Richie, current President of the WNBA and M2W® 2014 You Take the Cake Best Speaker Award winner.
