Drake AD Brian Hardin got the chance to partake in a mock NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament selection process. "Many great takeaways and enlightening discussions on how challenging it is to select, seed, and bracket the teams. Grateful for the opportunity."
Could be interesting to see if this opportunity has any impact on scheduling moving forward.
In other news, starting in 2023 the tournament for the women will move to a 2-site regional format. What this means: Presently the Sweet 16/Elite 8 are played at 4 different sites just like the men. Starting in 2023 they'll be played at just 2 sites.
