Pregame Rituals - Dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse

The night before taking on LSU in the NCAA tournament, the Hartford Hawks women's basketball team had dinner together at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.

Ruth's Chris is perhaps becoming a team ritual the night before a tournament game. In Baton Rouge in 2008, the Hawks had their Friday night meal at the restaurant. The next day, the Hawks, a 10 seed, upset Syracuse, a seven seed.

The Hawks, again a 10 seed, are trying to recreate that magic. In Louisiana, University of Hartford President Walter Harrison arrived at the restaurant midway through the meal. This year, Harrison was again fashionably late.

The dinner was enjoyed by all in attendance, including special guest Tom Reich. The efforts of Reich made the dinner at Ruth's Chris possible.
