Mel Greenberg Born April 16, 1947 Nationality USA Occupation Sports Journalist Known for Initiating the AP Top 25 Poll for D1 Women's basketball
Mel Greenberg is a respected American sports journalist focusing on women's basketball.
Since 1970, Greenberg has written for the Philadelphia Inquirer, where he predominantly covers college and professional women's basketball. He has helped pioneer national coverage of the sport, most notably as a leader in organizing the first Top 25 women's college basketball poll. For this and other accomplishments, he has been called "The Guru" of women's basketball.
In 1991, Greenberg received the first media award from the Women's Basketball Coaches Association, an award that has since been named after him. The annual Mel Greenberg Media Award is given to "a member of the media who has best displayed a commitment to women's basketball and to advancing the role of the media in promoting the women's game". Subsequent winners include Debbie Becker of USA Today in 1992, Mary Garber of the Winston-Salem Journal in 1998, and Bill Jauss of the Chicago Tribune in 2006.
