Rutgers Women’s assistant basketball coach Nadine Domond named to Connecticut Basketball Hall of Fame

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (April 14, 2020) – Rutgers women’s basketball assistant coach Nadine Domond will be inducted into the Connecticut Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in September, honoring her historic high school performance playing for Bridgeport
Central and her career as a professional athlete and college coach.

Nadine Domond

Domond will be entering her fifth year on the Scarlet Knights’ coaching staff. She has been at the forefront of Rutgers’ recent recruiting success, including the signing of No. 6 overall prospect (according to ESPN) Diamond Johnson and contributing to the No. 1 ranked 2020 recruiting class in the Big Ten and No. 8 nationally.

“I’m honored,” Domond said. “I’m going in with some special people. This is an amazing group of the best basketball people. I remember playing against some of them in high school. I’m just honored and appreciative of my peers for recognizing my contributions to the game.”

Her basketball success story began at Bridgeport Central in Connecticut, which posted a 27-0 record in 1993-94 and won the Class LL state title with a four-point victory over Shelton. Domond, a 5-foot-9 guard, averaged 23.6 points, 10.8 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 6.4 steals per game as a senior. She scored a career-high 56 points in a game against Norwalk and was honored as the Gatorade Connecticut Player of the Year. A four-time all-state selection, she finished her career with 2,302 points, 921 rebounds, 476 assists and 472 steals.

She went on to play her college ball at Iowa, where Domond played in three NCAA tournaments and took the Hawkeyes to the Sweet 16 in 1996. She was a Second Team All-Big Ten honoree in 1998. She was chosen 19th overall by the New York Liberty in the 1996 WNBA Draft and played extensively overseas in France, Poland and Israel.

The 33rd Annual Connecticut Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony has been postponed to September 30th at Cascade Banquet Facility in Hamden. Ticket information may be obtained from Tina Gonyea [203] 927-6581 or tlghoop@aol.com.

The Connecticut Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame was the first organization of its kind in the country. It was created in 1987 by five professional and personal friends who strongly felt the need to honor outstanding basketball players, coaches, officials, and advocates. The Hall of Fame honors those who have contributed to the enhancement of women’s basketball in Connecticut — either through participation, through service, through support, or through achievement. The 2020 Connecticut Women’s Basketball Hall of Famers exemplify the finest achievements in Connecticut.
