“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.”
The 33rd Annual Connecticut Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony has been postponed to September 30th at Cascade Banquet Facility in Hamden. The Connecticut Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame was the first organization of its kind in the country.
