Opening Tip-off: Action!

As we were going to press, Mikaelyn Austin C’04 was just finishing up the final cut of The Palestra: Cathedral of Basketball, the documentary film about the hallowed hoops shrine that she has written, produced, and directed [“Homage to a Cathedral of Hoops," Nov/Dec 2004]. In addition to a Philadelphia premiere at an as-yet-undetermined location in mid-October, Austin will have a DVD available by Homecoming Weekend (October 27-28), and if all goes well she will have nailed down deals with a number of broadcasting venues, too. Those interested in learning more—and checking out interviews with the likes of Bill Bradley, Chuck Daly, John Chaney, Corky Calhoun W’72, and Phil Martelli—should visit www.palestradocumentary.com or contact Austin at mikaelyn@mikaelyn.com —S.H.
