Former Iowa women's basketball player Mary Berdo will give a presentation about her career in athletics administration today.

Berdo, the assistant director of championships for the NCAA, will speak at 1:30 p.m. in 101 Becker Communications Studies Building.

The presentation will mostly be geared toward recreation and sports business students, but it is open to anyone.

Berdo's job is to oversee the NCAA championship rounds for Division-I field hockey, volleyball, wrestling, and women's tennis, and includes a variety of tasks in the athletics-administration field.

Berdo played for the Hawkeyes women's basketball team from 1996-97 and 1999-2001. The guard from Washington, Iowa, averaged 5.8 points per game off the bench over her career and was at her best in the postseason; she scored 20 points in two games in the 2001 NCAA Tournament and received her first career start in the title game of the 2001 Big Ten Tournament.

A 2001 Iowa graduate, Berdo earned degrees in communications studies and sports studies.
