“Hoosiers love basketball and there’s no better way to show support for the Women’s Final Four that will be played in Indiana than participating in Dribble to Work Day next Monday. Anyone can do it, and our goal is to see Hoosiers everywhere post videos of themselves, their co-workers or family and friends showing their basketball dribbling skills and using the hashtag #WFinalFourDribble,” said Ryan Vaughn, president of the Indiana Sports Corp.
Shyra Ely-Gash, the former Ben Davis High School, University of Tennessee and WNBA star, who is also the official ambassador of the Women’s Final Four, taped her own Dribble to Work Day video. Her video is posted here. The Indiana Sports Corp has produced a special Dribble to Work Day video that will be posted on Monday.
Participation is easy and props are minimal:
- Find a basketball
- Use a cell phone. Other video equipment is fine, too.
- Find a friend, a co-worker, or someone else to video a few seconds of your best dribbling skills
- Post the video to Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or your other favorite social platform and use the hashtag #WFinalFourDribble on Monday (March 14)
- Encourage your co-workers, friends and family to do the same
The Women’s Final Four is celebrating its 35th year in 2016. Indianapolis will host the event for the third time (2005, 2011, 2016) and for the first time, all three NCAA divisions of women’s basketball will play their championship games in the same city on the same weekend. Division I will play its semifinal games on April 3 and championship game on April 5; Divisions II and III will play their championship games on April 4. All games will be at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
