NEW ORLEANS, La. - - The Tulane women's basketball team will hold its annual postseason banquet this weekend, head coach Lisa Stockton announced on Tuesday.
Tickets for the banquet, which will be held from 12 p.m. - 2 p.m. at Cannon's Restaurant on St. Charles Ave, are available to the public for $30 and can be purchased by calling the Tulane women's basketball office at (504) 865-5672. Reservations must be made through the women's basketball office before Wednesday. Fans who are unable to attend the banquet can still purchase a ticket to help sponsor a player.
"We're excited to be celebrating another successful season of Tulane women's basketball," head coach Lisa Stockton said. "We have had great fan support throughout the year, and we hope to see many of those same fans at the banquet on Saturday."
Annual highlights of the banquet include team and individual awards, as well as the always-popular highlight video.
Tulane is coming off a 2001 campaign that saw the Green Wave reach the NCAA Tournament for the seventh straight season after claiming its third straight Conference USA Tournament title. The Wave also posted its sixth consecutive 20-win season.
The Green Wave had several players win individual honors throughout the season, highlighted by Janell Burse, who was named as an All-American for the second straight season. Burse also earned a spot on the All-Conference USA first team and was chosen as the league's Defensive Player of the Year for the third straight season.
