  • Head Coach of the University of Delaware Women's Basketball Team Tina Martin is a frequent speaker at the Hockessin-Greenville Rotary Meetings.
    And in all the years she has come to speak, her team has done remarkably well.
    She said that if her team wins the NCAA tournament this year, she will definitely have to come back and speak next year.
    Superstitious? Perhaps.
    But Martin is trying not to let the pressure of being the league favorite get to her.
    "We are the pre-season favorite," she said. "Last year was a dream ride."
    But Martin is already looking to the future to next year when Elena Delle Donne graduates.
    "We have a very good incoming freshman class," Martin said. "There will be life after Elena…we won't fall off the map."
    Delle Donne is going to play in the WNBA, and is expected to be the number one draft pick. She also wants to open up a basketball academy.
