NCAA closer to changing Final Four dates

The NCAA women’s basketball committee is backing a move to play the Final Four two days earlier, starting next season.

The Final Four would go to a Friday-Sunday format instead of the Sunday-Tuesday configuration in place since 2003.

“It was a difficult decision for us,” said Carolayne Henry, chair of the Division I Women’s Basketball Committee and senior associate commissioner/senior woman administrator at the Mountain West Conference. “The atmosphere on the Final Four weekend is something we can continue to capitalize on. As we grow, we can look to see if we want to be a stand-alone entity. For now, we want to take advantage of the excitement around basketball that takes place on that weekend.”
