The women's tournament is going back to 16 predetermined host sites (four teams each) in 2009. Iowa City is one of those. I believe that if Iowa doesn't make the tournament (and they probably won't, given the personnel they lose), and if ISU has a really good year (with everybody returning) -- then it is a real possibility that ISU will play in Carver-Dumpeye for the first two rounds.
The first of those two conditions is the most important. If we are the #1 team in the nation but Iowa makes the tournament, we will not play in Iowa City. If we are a decent team and Iowa doesn't make the tournament, there's a real possibility of ending up in Iowa City. The other nearby(ish) possibilities if we don't play in IC are Michigan State, Notre Dame, and Ohio State.
