Gulf Coast Showcase Women's Basketball History
This is the first year that the Gulf Coast Showcase will be held with a women's basketball tournament included. Last season was the inaugural Gulf Coast Showcase but it only featured a men's side and Louisiana Tech emerged victorious. The tournament was such a big hit that this season it expanded to include a women's field which should be just as big of a hit as the men's tournament was last year, especially with the teams chosen to participate.
The Gulf Coast Showcase is in its second year but this is the first year that it will have a field of women's teams and the teams involved on the women's side are among the best in all of college basketball including the UCONN Huskies who are one of the best college basketball programs of all time regardless of gender. The UConn Huskies women's basketball team has been one of the most successful college sports teams in the past twenty years, regardless of gender. With such famous former players as Diana Taurasi and Rebecca Lobo, the Huskies have gained a reputation for being a program where excellence is expected. After setting a college basketball record of consecutive victories, surpassing even the legendary John Wooden UCLA teams, the Huskies have never looked back and continue to show their dominance in college hoops. Always a highly rated team and a contender for the national title, UCONN consistently reloads their roster and has one of the most talented squads in all of college basketball. Teams like Vanderbilt, Villanova, Minnesota, and Georgia Tech have all been some of the most dominant teams in their conferences and are constantly poised to make big runs in the NCAA Tournament. Green Bay, the College of Charleston, and Arizona State are all up and coming women's college basketball programs who will undoubtedly relish their chance to take on some of the sport's traditional powerhouses. The Gulf Coast Showcase offers unbelievable match ups and should prove to be one of the most fascinating college basketball tournaments of the season.
Women's college basketball has been growing in popularity for decades and now stands as one of the most popular college sports in the country. Catching top notch women's college hoops teams in action is an experience not to be missed, especially when it is part of an amazing tournament like the Gulf Coast Showcase. Each game in the tournament increases in intensity exponentially and the surviving teams continue to put on an incredible show as they get closer and closer to a championship. The games continue with end-to-end action, big-time shots and clutch defensive stops. Suddenly the clock is winding down in the second half and the two sides are desperately looking to gain control of a game that has been back and forth for most of the afternoon. Anxiety fills the arena both on the court and in the stands and each possession becomes more and more important. Finally one team pulls ahead just long enough to advance to the next round and their players and fans explode in ecstasy.
The Gulf Coast Showcase was designed to give mid-major programs the chance to compete in the national spotlight as well as to go up against schools from the biggest conferences in the country.
