Womens Basketball
Support the Women’s Basketball program on UCI Giving Day!

In 2023-2024, our Women’s Basketball team is coming off a historic season winning UCI’s second conference Championship (ever) and making the NCAA tournament for the first time in 29 years! To further enhance the UCI experience and foster a sense of pride, this UCI Giving Day we are embarking on a crucial initiative: the renovation of our Women’s Basketball locker room.

A modern and well-equipped locker room is more than just a facility; it is a space that cultivates camaraderie, boosts morale, and empowers our athletes to perform at their best. By contributing to this project, you become an integral part of their journey, helping create an environment that inspires excellence and keeps us competitive with every other NCAA Division 1 facility.

Thank you for considering supporting Women’s Basketball this UCI Giving Day. Together, we can create an environment that empowers our athletes to thrive and inspires future generations.

Go Anteaters!!
