Women's National Basketball Team is Coming to UD


UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE- The USA Basketball Women’s National Team is coming to the University of Delaware for an exhibition game this fall.

The game is scheduled for Sept. 11 and it will be televised on ESPN2.

Chairman of Delaware Sports Commission Matt Robinson said bringing the game to UD made sense.

“It fit because in the days before the team will be at training camp in Annapolis,” Robinson said.

It also fit for another reason.

“Elena Delle Donne is on the team, and that had an impact on going to Delaware,” Robinson said.

Delle Donne, a UD graduate who plays for the Chicago Sky, is expected to play so long as her team is not playing in the WNBA finals.

The exhibition game brings top players and Head Coach Geno Auriemma to the first state. Auriemma will lead the team in the upcoming world championship.

Tickets go on sale Monday. The minimum price of a ticket is $12.
