NCAA Women’s Basketball Louisville Grouping TicketsIn today’s world, college women’s basketball has become one of the most competitive sports alongside football and men’s basketball. Each year, teams from the NCAA’s hundreds of member schools compete for a chance to win a national title, no easy feat in any sport. For women’s basketball, the sheer volume of competitors makes it a daunting task. After completing an already grueling regular season, the best 64 schools receive an invitation to the national tournament in hopes of battling their way to the top of the pile. Every school is divided up into different regions and placed into small groupings for their bracket. As the tournament goes on, teams are immediately eliminated upon defeat, but the victors will continue on to subsequent rounds of the tournament, hopefully making their way to the Final Four and eventually the national title game. Enjoy the action in person by buying your Women's Basketball Louisville Grouping tickets at StubHub.
What does it mean to host a grouping?The Louisville Cardinals hosted a grouping for the national championship in 2019 as well as in the prior two years. Louisville is a perennial contender for the women’s national championship, making them one of the toughest teams to play. Just like years prior, Louisville had a stellar regular season, tearing through the ACC and earning the nod to host a regional grouping. The other teams within their most recent grouping were Robert Morris University, Michigan, and Kansas State. Louisville has earned the No. 1 seed, an honor afforded only the top four schools in the tournament, which grants them the easiest beginning rounds.
What happens on the road to the championship?In order to make the way to a national title, each team has to win out. The NCAA championship tournament is a single-elimination tournament where losers are immediately disqualified. Prior to the tournament, each team selected is designated a "seed" numbered anywhere from 1 to 16. The lower the number, the more highly rated the team. A team’s seed determines who they play, which gives an easier initial path to the better teams. A No. 1 seed will face off initially against a No. 16 seed. After winning two games, the teams advance to the Sweet Sixteen, an honor for any participating school. Eventually, victors will go on to the Elite Eight, Final Four and National Title game.
What is the history of the NCAA Women’s Tournament?When women’s basketball was transferred so that it would be included in the NCAA in 1981, a national tournament was established. On that day, there were many fewer teams, and so the National tournament only held 32 best teams. Since that time, however, the growth of the sport has spurred a major increase in the number of participants, leading to frequent tournament expansions. At one point, the tournament grew to 40 teams, and later 48, before settling on 64 around the turn of the millennium. Since that time, it has remained largely the same. Additionally, conference champions have always been awarded automatic bids. The number of automatic bids has also increased as conferences have joined the sport over time. Because of the number of conferences, there are now 32 automatic bids and 32 at large bids, while there have been as few as 12 automatic bids and as many as 34 at large bids - a number which occurred immediately after the final expansion to 64 teams while there were still only 30 conference champions included.
What is the schedule for the 2020 NCAA women's basketball tournament?Following eight regionals taking place March 27-30, the Final Four competition is set for Friday, April 3 and Sunday, April 5, at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, La., with the national champion to be determined on April 5.
