Women's Basketball Alumnae Return for Big Win Over Maquette
Feb. 13, 2012
A record-setting turnout for Women’s Basketball Alumnae Day set the tone for an electrifying day of Blue Demon Basketball on February 12.
The day started with nearly 50 alumnae and their guests, spanning four decades, gathering in the DePaul Student Center for a program reception. Alumnae had the opportunity to interact with Athletic Director Jean Lenti Ponsetto and listen to a pre-game chalk-talk delivered by Hall of Fame Coach Doug Bruno.
“It was really great to see such support for the women’s basketball program from the players of all eras, in addition to a great crowd,” said Erin Cattell women’s basketball alumnae 2005-2009. “It was an exciting game that not only represented one of the greatest rivalries of college basketball, it was supporting a great cause for the Kay Yow Breast Cancer Foundation.”
Following the reception, alumnae headed to McGrath-Phillips Arena to support DePaul Women’s Basketball as they faced Marquette.
In addition to the pre-game reception, the women’s basketball alumnae were recognized in a halftime presentation. Jean Lenti-Ponsetto greeted each alum on Doug Bruno Court in front of a sold-out McGrath-Phillips Arena crowd.
The women concluded the action-packed day with a 71-59 win over Marquette. The Blue Demons were led by junior guard Anna Martin, as she recorded her first double-double with 19 points and 10 rebounds.
