CoBL relaunching as nonprofit organization, adding women's coverage

Today is the ninth anniversary of the founding of City of Basketball Love. It's also the day we announce a new tack in the organization's direction: that as a nonprofit corporation.

We've officially dissolved our LLC and reformed in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a nonprofit, covering both boys' and girls' high school hoops as well as men's and women's college ball. We've retained Rowan professor and former Philadelphia Inquirer scribe Kate Harman to run our girls/women's coverage, and formed a nine-member Board of Directors to help guide our direction.
