The NCAA Womens Final Four
basketball games at the Q have been sold-out since last May. But there are still plenty of things to do leading up to Tuesdays championship. The four-day blowout starts with a City Club luncheon this morning, where tennis legend Billie Jean King talks about her career (11:30 a.m. at Cleveland State Universitys Wolstein Center, 2000 Prospect Avenue; $45). At 10 a.m. tomorrow, nearly 2,700 local students will dribble basketballs from the Galleria on Saint Clair Avenue to Mall C, where marching bands from the tourney schools will perform.
@cal body 1:Fans can then cross the street to check out Hoop City, where videogames and dunk-and-dribble workshops await (10 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow and Sunday, and noon to 8 p.m. Monday at the Convention Center, 500 Lakeside Avenue; $7, $3 for kids), Theyre also invited to watch players from the final four teams practice lay-ups and jump shots (11 a.m. tomorrow at Quicken Loans Arena, 100 Gateway Plaza; free). Its about time we got in the middle of a sport with these die-hard fans, says Annie Hetson, marketing manager for the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission. This is going to be unreal.
