Dear Friends & Fans of Quinnipiac
On behalf of Quinnipiac’s Department of Athletics &
Recreation, I am pleased to extend to you a special invitation to attend “Quinnipiac
Day” on Tuesday, August 20, 2013 to officially welcome the
Bobcats to the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC). The event
will be held at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in
Springfield, Mass. with all the action beginning at 1 p.m. and
concluding with a reception at 3:30 p.m.
The Basketball Hall of Fame will be open to the public with a
list of scheduled events to take place throughout the afternoon.
Directed by Quinnipiac men’s basketball coach Tom Moore and
women’s basketball coach Tricia Fabbri, “Quinnipiac
Day” kicks off with a Coaches’ Clinic on the Court of
Dreams (1:00-2:30 p.m.), followed by a chance for fans to explore
the historic landmark and its memorabilia (2:30-3:30 p.m.).
“Quinnipiac Day” will conclude in the afternoon
with a reception at the Special Exhibit Gallery adjacent to the
“MAAC Experience” display at the Hall of Fame.
"The MAAC Experience" showcases the league's institutions and
features a digital display with the most up-to-date information
about MAAC men's and women's basketball, as well as historical
artifacts and memorabilia from the conference's 30-year
history. Also featured is the debut of the second edition of
the “A Day In the Life” video, a 12-minute production
that gives viewers an insight into a typical day of a
basketball student-athlete, and features one student-athlete from
each of the MAAC’s 11 institutions. The Bobcats’
representative in this informative and entertaining piece is rising
junior guard Jasmine Martin. In addition, the reception will
feature opening remarks from Quinnipiac University President John
L. Lahey, Director of Athletics and Recreation Jack McDonald, MAAC
Commissioner Richard J. Ensor, Esq. and Quinnipiac Basketball
Coaches Tom Moore and Tricia Fabbri. Light appetizers will be
served and a cash bar will be available.
Please join us as Quinnipiac celebrates its new membership in
the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC).
