Hawks are Soaring
Rizzotti achieved the milestone on Dec. 29 when the Hawks defeated Seton Hall of the Big East Conference, 65-54, in South Orange, N.J. A brief ceremony recognizing Rizzotti’s achievement will be held prior to Saturday’s 2 p.m. game against the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
The Hawks, who are the 2005 America East champions, have had a number of other impressive achievements this season as well. Freshman Erica Beverly has been named America East Rookie of the Week five times, while sophomore Danielle Hood has captured back-to-back conference Player of the Week honors. Hood had the fifth most productive outing in school history this past Saturday, scoring 30 points in Hartford’s 70-50 victory at Albany.
The Hawks carry a 10-2 record into tonight’s (Jan. 11) home game against Boston University (7 p.m., Chase Arena). Various indexes, which measure a team’s record and strength of schedule, currently rank Hartford between 36 and 69 among the 332 schools playing Division I women’s basketball.
