Since 1999, The Eastman Trophy has been presented to the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame Inductees at the annual Induction Ceremony. The Eastman is a replica of the Elizabeth MacQueen statue housed at the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame in the Pat Summitt Rotunda. The statue represents the hall’s mission statement to “honor the past, celebrate the present, and promote the future” of women’s basketball.
The trophy is named after the company and title sponsor, Eastman. Headquartered in Kingsport, TN, the company employs approximately 14,500 people worldwide. Eastman has been a strong partner of the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame since their opening in 1999.
