Lisa Brummel of Force 10 Hoops, the Storm’s ownership group, is getting some well-deserved accolades for her basketball exploits on the floor. The Connecticut Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame will induct Brummel as part of its Class of 2013 based on Brummel’s career at Yale University from 1977-81. A multi-sport star as a Bulldog, Brummel was an All-Ivy selection after all four seasons and remains fifth on the school’s list of all-time leading scorers.
“I am truly honored to be inducted into the Connecticut Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame and also proud to represent Yale University,” Brummel told YaleBulldogs.com. “During my college career I had the opportunity to play with great teammates who made me better as a player. Basketball is a team sport and I am grateful to have been on the Ivy League Championship team in 1979 and to have our team make the postseason tournament each year during my time at Yale.”
The Class of 2013 will be inducted into the Connecticut Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame next April 24. Brummel will be joined by Honorary Inductee Chris Dailey, the associate head women’s basketball coach at UConn, as well as former prep stars Karen “Pie” Draughn (Wilbur Cross High School, New Haven; Cheyney State) and Patty Costa (Andrew Warde High School, Fairfield; Fairfield University and University of Bridgeport), high school coach Nick Chaconis (Portland High School), and fellow collegian Amy Matthews McKenna (Thomaston High School, Western Connecticut State University). The Connecticut Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame will also induct a college coach, who will be announced at a later date.
The Hall of Fame was established in 1988 to honor individuals who have contributed to the enhancement of women’s basketball in the State of Connecticut
