"Women's professional basketball is not the Rage in Philadelphia," according to Edward Moran of the PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS. After 12 games, the team is "falling far short" of the 5,000-per-game attendance average the league "hoped" for when it moved the team from Richmond. The "team averages only 3,210 fans per game, only 98 more fans that it averaged during the first 12 home games last season in Richmond." Moran: "The team still is trying to get the public's attention" (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 12/19).
