Terry Greene History

Franklin & Marshall's annual tip-off tournament was renamed the Terry Greene Tip-Off Classic in 2006 in honor of the late Terry Greene, Professor of Psychology, for her dedication to the women's basketball program during her tenure as faculty liaison to the team. 

The Diplomats last won the tournament in 2017, defeating Immaculata and Elizabethtown. F&M fell to Elizabethtown in last year's tip-off tournament.

Series History

Franklin & Marshall opens its 2019-20 campaign hosting Marywood on Wednesday. The Diplomats and Pacers have split the last two meetings, with F&M most recently emerging victorious in last year's season opener.

The Diplomats host their annual Terry Greene Tip-Off Classic over the weekend, beginning with Wilkes on Saturday. F&M hasn't faced the Colonels since 2000, but the Diplomats have taken five of the six matchups between the two, including four consecutive victories from 1976-1980.

F&M faces either Elizabethtown or William Smith, depending on Saturday's results. The Diplomats have faltered in four of the last five games against Elizabethtown, but have split the last two games. If F&M faces William Smith, it would be the first time that the two teams have faced one another.

Last Meeting with Marywood

F&M entered the fourth quarter tied with Marywood before holding on to win by three points in the season opener a year ago. Haley Pilone's 21 points paced the scoring.

Last Meeting with Wilkes

The Generals held F&M to just 41 points to take a 20-point decision in 2000. The Diplomats finished 17-8 overall that season.

Last Meeting with Elizabethtown

The Diplomats fell to the Blue Jays by five points in 2018. Kenna Williams secured a double-double with 11 points and 12 rebounds. Sarosha Parsons racked up 13 points, going 5-of-6 from the charity stripe.

Last Meeting with William Smith

The Diplomats and Herons have never faced one another before this weekend's potential meeting. 

Milestone Watch

Kristin Hamill enters the season with 891 career points, 109 away from becoming the 16th Diplomat to eclipse the 1,000-points mark for her career.  The senior center is also 16th on the career rebounds list with 547, four away from entering the top-15 in school history.

Interim head coach Beth Elbon enters the season with 96 career victories at the helm of the Diplomats, just four away from becoming the second coach in the history of the women's basketball program to eclipse 100 career wins.
