Coach Jennifer Rizzotti has built
the University of Hartford women's basketball program into one of
the nation's up-and-coming programs. This remarkable story will
continue to unfold in November and WWUH will be there to capture
all the action live.
Hartford has appeared in postseason play four of the past
six years. The Hawks reached the round of 32 in the 2006 NCAA Tournament,
and, last season, won games in both the preseason and postseason
Women's NIT. The program has recorded consecutive 25-win seasons
while continuously upgrading its schedule to include an increasing
number of teams from power conferences.
The year ahead will see the Hawks face the likes of Kansas,
Michigan State, BYU, Connecticut, Providence, and 2007 NCAA Tournament
upstart Marist. The team will also participate in Hawaii's Rainbow
Wahine Classic over Thanksgiving weekend, part of a field that includes
Texas, Kentucky, Minnesota, and Virginia.
Jon Easterbrook '87, '90, a member
of WWUH's public affairs department in the 1980s and director of
marketing services at the university, returns for his 13th year
as the voice of Hartford women's basketball.
He will be joined for the third year by Jesse Ullmann,
whose diverse and global broadcasting experiences include covering
the 2003 Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne and serving
as a news correspondent for Radio Works New Zealand.
