The Connecticut Women's Basketball Hall of Fame seeks to honor those who, in a superlative fashion, have contributed to the enhancement of women's basketball in Connecticut - either through participation, service, support, or achievement.

Excellence speaks with a voice of its own. On this web site we are privileged to share in that voice. The Connecticut Women's Basketball Hall of Fame honorees exemplify the finest achievements in the world of sport.
