ABOUT MARY KORBEY
The Mary Korbey 3v3 Basketball Tournament honors Mary Beth
(Marquedant) Korbey, who passed away after a courageous
battle with cancer in July 2015. Mary is survived by her husband,
Michael, and her three children, Mikala, Cooper and Calli. Mary
gave countless hours to the Hopkinton Basketball Association.
In addition to occupying various board positions, she coached
all three of her children in their recreational and travel leagues
for many years. She will be remembered by her children as well
as the many dozens of other kids she coached as an energetic,
positive role model on and off the court, teaching kids as much about how to be good people as well as to be good teammates and players. She was a member of the Hopkinton High School Class of 1983, where she was a standout athlete, later becoming one of the first inductees into the Hopkinton High School Athletic Hall of Fame. She attended the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where she received a full scholarship as a walk-on point guard for the basketball team and graduated with a degree in sports management. Mary was a successful real estate broker in the Metrowest area since 1992, most recently working out of the RE/MAX Executive Realty office in Hopkinton. She was a longstanding member of the Hopkinton Education Foundation, where she was able to raise funds for innovative educational programs. The Mary Korbey 3v3 Basketball Tournament will benefit a scholarship in Mary's name and remember a wonderful mother, wife, coworker, coach and friend.
