Jody Conradt loves basketball and she aspired to become a teacher as a child. Armed with those traits, a graceful, compassionate style, Texas-sharp wit and humor, and a desire to bring education and sport opportunities to young women, Conradt emerged as a visionary leader for women’s college basketball and women’s sports administration.
As only the second woman ever inducted into the Nasmith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1998, Conradt is known as a pioneer. Conradt led the 1985-86 Texas Longhorns to a 34-0 record and national championship, the NCAA’s first perfect season in the sport. She continues to serve UT as a special assistant to women’s athletics.
