The North Dakota Fighting Hawks women's basketball team is part of the athletic program at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, North Dakota. It is a member of the NCAA Division I Big Sky Conference; the upcoming 2012-2013 season will be their first in the new conference. Previously they played in Division II's North Central Conference and Division I's Great West Conference. The current women's head coach is Travis Brewster. The announcer for the women's team is Kris Holm. Radio duties are handled by Paul Ralston and Mitch Wigness.

The first year the university fielded a women's team was in 1894. Since then, the women's team has appeared in 23 NCAA tournaments. The first Division I appearance was in 2014. With the exception of 1986, 1987, and 1989, the basketball team appeared in every NCAA Division II tournament from 1984 to 2007. Three of the Division II tournament appearances resulted in three consecutive Division II National Championships (1997, 1998, 1999).[2]
