Oregon Women's Basketball

THE ASK: Change the fact that the Oregon women's basketball team, the top-ranked team in the Pac-12, has the 47th largest crowd among Division I women's basketball teams. 

THE STRATEGY: Drive interest in the sport by building interest in the players. 

THE WORK: Researched college athletics, the WNBA, and how other sports have leveraged their players' cults of personality. Found an opportunity to reach families looking for role models and beleaguered Oregon fans looking for emerging stars.
