AlumNation to bring former players together

Created to bring former women’s basketball players together to celebrate the competitive spirit and camaraderie of the Women’s Final Four weekend, AlumNation again will serve as the premier gathering for former NCAA women’s basketball student-athletes.

AlumNation programming includes a number of special activities planned in conjunction with the 2017 Women’s Final Four being played March 31 and April 2 at American Airlines Center in Dallas. Former Divisions I, II and III players involved in AlumNation receive a special ticket package that will include tickets to the games, a commemorative swag bag, invitations to exclusive pregame parties and more.

In addition, former players can show they still have game by competing in the AlumNation 3v3 Tournament from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, April 2, in Tourney Town presented by Capital One just outside American Airlines Center. Participants can reconnect with former teammates and compete for bragging rights. The winning team will win four tickets to the 2018 Women’s Final Four in Columbus, Ohio, and a four-night stay at the NCAA headquarters hotel.

Additional information regarding AlumNation or the AlumNation 3v3 Tournament is available at ncaa.com/womens-final-four/alumnation or can be obtained by contacting Kelsey Harris at 317-917-6820 or kharris@ncaa.org.

“What I love about AlumNation is the opportunity to rekindle the fire that never leaves as a former player,” said Fran Harris, who played at the University of Texas at Austin from 1982 to 1986 and helped the Longhorns capture the 1986 NCAA Division I championship before enjoying a professional career overseas and in the WNBA. Harris is now a community engagement coordinator at Texas. “I applaud the effort by the NCAA women’s basketball staff to organize this opportunity for former players to renew old friendships, and I look forward to seeing everyone in Dallas.”
