Indiana Fever Coach, Lin Dunn, Hosts Sisters for Dinner and a Basketball Game
In late August last year, a group of Xi Zeta/U of Tennessee–
Martin alumnae initiated between 1960 and 1970
travelled to Indianapolis to catch a Women’s National
Basketball Association game between the Indiana Fever,
coached by their Xi Zeta Sister Lin Dunn, and the Atlanta
Dream. Although the Fever were not victorious, the Sisters
hooted for them loudly while dining on a finely catered
meal hosted by Lin in her private arena box.
The previous evening, over dinner in Lin’s home in the
shadow of Conseco Fieldhouse, the Sisters joined with
fans across the country, wearing orange in support of the
health challenges of Xi Zeta Sister, Pat Head Summit.
Though some of the women had not enjoyed each other’s
company in a long while and others had never met, the
event was, nevertheless, a perfect symphony of friendship,
celebration, and even games of mahjong!
