    Expanded Tournament?

    Women's NCAA tournament examines expansion to 96 teams - ESPN

    Just because the NCAA men's basketball tournament is likely to expand to 96 teams doesn't necessarily mean the women's field will grow, too.They sure are looking into it, though.
    Jane Meyer, head of the NCAA women's basketball selection committee, said Tuesday that conversations range from whether they should expand by 32 teams, to how they would do it. A subcommittee is already kicking around ideas, but no decisions have been made.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    If they did that, teams would press and nobody would make it across half court.

    Re: Expanded Tournament?

    Since the WNIT allows 64 teams and isnt owned by the ncaa (unlike the mens which is NCAA-owned and its 32 slots would just be folded into the ncaa tournament), assuming that stayed the same, you'd have 160 womens postseason teams.

    That made me LOL. Expansion would be a bad idea. Parity is already an issue; maybe they could decrease the number to 32.

    (And yes, I have season tickets to WBB)
