“Chalk Talk” Returns To Big East Tournament

by Categorized: 2013 Big East Tournament, XL Center Date:

One of the most interesting, certainly informative, parts of last year’s Big East Tournament was the introduction of “Chalk Talk”  – the panel discussion hosted by the conference featuring a number of dignitaries representing the many side of women’s basketball.

The conference has decided to bring it back for another spin this season on March 11, semifinal day – from 4-5:30 p.m.

Once again, the event is private with attendees limited to those who have won tickets.

The panelists will discuss the state of the game, as well as participate in a question and answer session. The panel will include Anucha Browne, NCAA Vice President of Women’s Basketball Championships; Anne Donovan, Connecticut Sun Head Coach; Ilene Hauser, Nike Sportsmarketing, Manager Women’s Pro Basketball; Gail Marks, All American RedHeads, a Hall of Fame inductee; Marynell Meadors, Assistant Olympic Coach and former Atlanta Dream Head Coach and GM.

The discussion and Q&A will be moderated by Big East Television Network analyst LaChina Robinson.

Fans can win admission to the 2013 Chalk Talk by:

Purchasing tickets to the Championship (automatically entered); signing up for the Big East newsletter (automatically entered); following the Big East and/or XL Center on Facebook and Twitter. Chalk Talk ticket giveaways will be held throughout the next few weeks leading up to the event.
