Basketball and Chemistry

That's right - basketball, not buckyball. What's the connection?  In the past three years our department has had the opportunity to teach four of the women's basketball team in the freshman general chemistry course.  And several years before that we had a Lady Titan graduate with a chemistry degree.

This past weekend, Professor Marmorino was invited by chemistry student and Titan Emily Strilich to be honorary coach for the home game against the St. Xavier Cougars.  The Cougars started the game very strong and established a lead in the first half.  In the second half the Titans stunned their guests by quickly scoring the first six points.  For the rest of the game, our team fought hard and kept the Cougars from furthering their lead.  If you have time, please come out to support the team as they play out the remaining games of the season.  Check out the schedule for the women's (click here) and men's games (click here).  Games continue until the end of February.
