TRENTON - There might not be a WNBA team in the area, but the best of the women's pro basketball league will be spending some time here and in Philadelphia in September.
USA Basketball announced yesterday that its senior national women's team will meet Australia in an exhibition game at 1 p.m. Sept. 16 at Sovereign Bank Arena. The squad will also spend Sept. 13-15 training at Temple's Liacouras Center.
"It's a good time to do this," USA Basketball president Val Ackerman, the former head of the WNBA, said yesterday of the exhibition game. "Kids will be back in school, vacations will be over, and the Eagles won't be playing football until the next night."
