Debbie Antonelli is one of the nation’s most esteemed WNBA and college basketball analysts, with 23 years’ broadcasting experience on ESPN, Big Ten Network, CBS, and FOX. She was the first woman to work a men’s NCAA Tournament game as an analyst in over 20 years.

Antonelli has covered 80 college basketball games each season in 30 years of sports reporting. She is a respected expert on collegiate and professional basketball, informed by her own playing days at North Carolina State University. Because of her efforts, the hardwood at N.C. State was renamed Kay Yow Court, after the famous coach with more than 700 career wins.

She began broadcasting with the WNBA in 1996, its first year, and has spent more than 21 years working with the Indiana Fever and the Charlotte Sting. For the better part of a decade, Antonelli has advocated that Las Vegas become a destination city for women’s college basketball. Her efforts have helped bring Play4Kay Vegas and other tournaments to the City of Lights.

Her experience in sports also has led her to develop media training workshops to teach coaches and athletes to communicate in any setting. Antonelli has trained players at schools such as Kansas, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Wake Forest, and many others. She sits on the Board of Directors of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, Naismith Trophy, and the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, among others.

This annual event honors outstanding medical students, residents and faculty from Boonshoft School of Medicine while recognizing the dedicated work of members of the Wright State University Academy of Medicine in an unforgettable evening of camaraderie and celebration. Each year, the event features luminary speakers from the field of medicine, arts or entertainment.
