Gillespie earns spot on NCAA’s Division I basketball committee


Green Bay Director of Athletics Mary Ellen Gillespie has been appointed to the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee. She will begin her five-year term Sept. 1, becoming the first administrator in the history of the Horizon League to serve on the selection committee. “This is fantastic recognition for UW-Green Bay and Phoenix Athletics,” Chancellor Gary L. Miller said, “and it’s the strongest possible affirmation of Mary Ellen’s leadership and her commitment to student athletes.” The 10-member committee is charged with elevating the game of women’s basketball and providing a first-rate championship experience for student-athletes, coaches and fans.
