Rizzotti part of 2013 Hall of Fame class

Jen Rizzotti, the point guard on UConn's first national championship team, is one of six players elected into the next class for the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame. Rizzotti will join her former UConn teammate Rebecca Lobo to become the second former Husky in the Hall of Fame. Rizzotti, currently the head coach at Hartford, played at UConn from 1992-96 and 1,540 points, 637 assists, and 349 steals. Rizzotti joins Annette Smith-Knight, Peggie Gillom-Granderson and Sue Wicks in the players category while Ohio State's Jim Foster (one of the people who gave UConn coach Geno Auriemma his shot in the coaching profession) and Texas A&M's Gary Blair will be inducted as coaching representatives. The Class of 2013 will be formally introduced at the 2012 State Farm Tip-Off Classic between Baylor and Kentucky on Nov. 13 in Waco, Tex. and inducted into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame on June 8 in Knoxville, Tenn
