| No TrackBacks
The NCAA Division I Championships/Sports Management Cabinet approved a recommendation to change the women's postseason championships to a 1-1-2-2 format beginning in the fall of 2011, the NCAA announced Friday.

Now, the first round of the NCAA tournament will be held at 32 on-campus sites and the following week, the second round will be held at 16 on-campus sites.

The third round and quarterfinals will be played on the same weekend at four non-predetermined campus-based sites.

The NCAA hopes that this will draw more fans to the games, by preventing a school that is not participating in the tournament from hosting the round.
