Our annual goal is to fundraise 45% of our annual scholarship bill. This year that number stands at $5,000,000. Our unrestricted annual fund helps to cover this amount along with premium seating revenues and student athlete scholarships. Your annual gift is critical to our success in providing championship resources in the classroom, in athletic competition, and in life.

I have so many memories! I guess my favorite is the trip to the 1997 Women’s Basketball Final Four in Cincinnati. The Stanford game was worth the whole trip! We won in overtime! I brought a tape of the Tennessee game for the bus ride. We had beaten them in overtime at the Field House earlier in the season.
