Tricia Fabbri Honored With WBCA Victory Club Award

HAMDEN, Conn. - Quinnipiac University women's basketball Head Coach Tricia Fabbri was honored as one of the recipients of the 2010 RUSSELL ATHLETIC/WBCA Victory Club Award. The award is presented to members of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) who achieved career wins of 200, 300, 400, 500 or more in increments of 100 this past season. Coach Fabbri recorded her 200th career victory on Dec. 29, 2009 with an 11-point win, 90-79, against Central Michigan in the Consolation Game at the Wyndham Miami Holiday Tournament.

The all-time winningest coach in program history, Fabbri completed her 15th season along the Bobcats' sidelines in 2009-10. With two wins in the final weekend of the regular season against Monmouth and at Fairleigh Dickinson, Fabbri led Quinnipiac to a berth in the 2010 Northeast Conference Tournament. Making it to the conference tournament for the 10th straight season, the Bobcats earned a No. 7 seed with a 7-11 NEC record. Despite a late-game push, Quinnipiac fell to the No. 2 seeded Long Island Blackbirds, 70-63, in the quarterfinals.
