DEPAUL WOMEN?S BASKETBALL ALUMNAE DAY



On Saturday, DePaul Athletics welcomed back more than 60 women basketball alums and their families. 

Prior to the game, all alumni and their families were invited to a pre-game reception in DePaul’s new Alumni Center. Food, fun, and family were a commonality recognized at this event.  Hugs were abundant; laughter and excitement coupled with appreciation at the framed pictures that adorned the Alumni Center’s conference room was also a shared moment among the group.

Despite running over to greet his former players with pink and white gym shoes in hand, Coach Bruno thanked his former players for their dedication and support of the program. “You ladies have paved the way…thank you for being here today—now let’s BEAT Villanova,” was bellowed out as Coach Bruno made his way back over to McGrath Arena for the start of the game.

At halftime, players were called to center court and acknowledged by Director of Athletics, and former DePaul women’s basketball player Jean Lenti Ponsetto. The night was capped off with the Blue Demons beating the Wildcats of Villanova, 64-60.

Special thanks to all of the alumnae who helped make this day special in so many ways!
