NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Quinnipiac women’s basketball head coach Tricia Fabbri and freshman guard Carly Fabbri (Stratford, Connecticut) were recently interviewed together by SportzEdge on-air personality John Pierson in a piece that will be aired on WTNH Channel 8 at 11:15 pm on Friday, Dec. 19. The mother-daughter Fabbri pairing discussed the Bobcats’ success this season as well as the journey for Carly to find a place playing for her mother’s squad.
Coach Fabbri became the fifth coach in Quinnipiac Athletics history to reach 300 career wins as she scored her 300th victory on Dec. 7 in a 67-66 win at her alma mater Fairfield. She joins a select list that includes Burt Kahn, Dan Gooley, Mike Quitko and Rand Pecknold as the only Quinnipiac coaches to reach the 300-win milestone. Now in her 20th season manning the helm of the Bobcats, Coach Fabbri is currently in the midst of her greatest four-year stretch as head coach at Quinnipiac after having led the Bobcats to three straight national postseason tournament berths as well as the first NCAA Tournament appearance (2013) in program history.
Carly Fabbri is enjoying her first season as a Bobcat after having starred at Lauralton Hall in Milford, Connecticut for four years prior to signing her official Letter of Intent. The rookie guard has appeared in five games this season, scoring her first career bucket with a made three-pointer on Nov. 18 at home against Hampton. She also just hit two free throws in Quinnipiac’s last home game on Dec. 17 against Drexel. In her high school career at Lauralton Hall, Carly led the Crusaders to the school’s first ever CIAC Championship title in 2013-14.
The Bobcats will be back in action on Sunday, Dec. 21 as Quinnipiac travels to Hartford to challenge the Hawks in a non-conference intrastate showdown. Tip-off is scheduled for 12:00 pm from Chase Family Arena.
