Hawks and WWUH Prove Championship Pair

WWUH Presents the Tenth Season of Women's Basketball

 It is a milestone year as WWUH and the University of Hartford's Women Hawk's basketball program celebrate 10 years together. In recognition of this relationship, the Hawks will designate one home game this winter as "WWUH-Night" on Wednesday, February 2nd.

 Sixth-year head coach Jennifer Rizzotti returns nine players and four starters to a team that won a school-record 18 games and finished with the fifth-best turnaround in all of Division I women's basketball last season. The Hawks garnered votes in the Associated Press Top 25 national poll for the first time in program history and ranked 16th in the country in scoring defense.

 Hartford returns four of its top five leading scorers from last season in junior guard Erika Messam (10.9 ppg, 3.8 apg), sophomore guard Ikea Witt (10.3 ppg, 4.6 rpg) and seniors Liz Stich (9.2 ppg) and Tanika Price (7.2ppg).

 The Hawks will play 27 regular season games. Highlighting the schedule is a match up with defending national champion Connecticut at the Hartford Civic Center on Dec. 7. The game will pit Hartford head coach and former UConn All-American Jennifer Rizzotti against former coach Geno Auriemma. Rizzotti played for Auriemma from 1992-96 culminating in a perfect 35-0 national championship season.

  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 10th year as the voice of Hartford women's basketball on WWUH Radio. He will be joined by color analyst Eric Saranik, a member of the University's graduating class of 1994, who has worked both on-air and as a producer in the Hartford and New Haven radio markets.
