NEW YORK (AP) Carly Fabbri grew up dreaming of wearing a Quinnipiac uniform and playing for her mom.

She's left her mark for the Bobcats, going 113-25 in her four years at the school where her mother, Tricia, has coached since 1995. While they aren't the first mother/daughter combo in women's basketball, they have been able to build a program into a consistent NCAA Tournament team and that's something they will always share.

"It's been a lot of fun. I've watched her my entire life coach. Just being able to have the opportunity to play for her has been awesome," Carly Fabbri said. "Obviously, we've won a lot and that's been incredible. These past two seasons especially, being able to get to the NCAA Tournament, making that historic run last year.
