Coach Lucille Kyvallos Featured on QPTV's Power Women of Queens Segment

FLUSHING, N.Y. (Jul. 11, 2018) - A trail-blazing icon and pioneer whose dedication and tireless effort led to the mainstream prominence of women's basketball at Queens College and beyond, former head coach Lucille Kyvallos was the featured guest on "Power Women of Queens," a seminal look at the names and faces of those who have shaped the present from the past in Queens County.

The video, produced by Queens Public Television (QPTV) features a one-on-one interview with producer Luchia Dragosh as Kyvallos talks about the building of the foundation of the Queens College women's basketball program and the struggle to bring it to relevancy. The interview touches on several different topics including the dedication of Lucille Kyvallos Court at Queens College last fall and the team's trip to Madison Square Garden in 1975---a game that was celebrated forty years later when the two sides met at "The World's Most Famous Arena" in 2015.
