The Minnesota women's basketball program celebrated with its most loyal donors and fans on Wednesday evening, as the Fast Break Club held its annual Tip-Off Dinner at Golden Valley Golf and Country Club.
Head coach Pam Borton spoke to a nice-sized crowd that came to hear about the upcoming season. Borton introduced her staff, which remains the same for the third-straight season this year. She then introduced two of the Gophers' three captains - senior guard Sari Noga and junior guard Rachel Banham. Senior forward Micaëlla Riché was unable to attend due to a class conflict.
