NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament TicketsThe NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament consists of a 64-team field. Half of the teams earn automatic bids by winning their respective conferences. Generally, conferences crown their champions in post-regular season tournaments. The other 32 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament slots go to at-large qualifiers. As does the men’s tournament, the women’s tournament has a round of 32, "Sweet Sixteen," "Elite Eight" and "Final Four." The University of Connecticut Huskies boasts 11 tournament championships. UConn won four consecutive from 2013 to 2016 and three-peated from 2002 to 2004. Six Lady Huskies’ squads (1995, 2002, 2009, 2010, 2014, and 2015) went undefeated. Mississippi State's 66–64 overtime win against UConn in the 2017 Final Four ended the Lady Huskies' unbeaten streak at 111. The eight championships for the University of Tennessee Lady Volunteers came in 1987, 1989, 1991, 1996, 1997, 1998, 2008 and 2009. Get your NCAA Women's Tournament Storrs tickets at StubHub.
How long has the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament been around?Compared with the men’s tournament dating back to 1939, the Women’s NCAA Tournament has a relatively young history. Louisiana Tech outdueled Cheney 76–62 to capture the first Women’s NCAA Basketball Championship in 1982. From 1972 to 1982, the AIAW (Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women) conducted a tournament to crown a women’s national champion. The same year as the inaugural NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament, Rutgers defeated Texas to capture the last AIAW tournament.
What are some of the most notable player performances in the NCAA Women's Tournament Storrs?In the first tournament, when the college game did not have a three-point line, Drake's Lorri Baumann recorded 50 points in her team's rout of Maryland. Two players, Kia Nurse (Purdue, 2012) and Courtney Moses (Syracuse, 2017), each drained nine three-pointers in single tournament games. Notre Dame's 2018 title run was buoyed by Arike Ogunbowale's 145 points over the six rounds.
How large is the Harry A. Gampel Pavilion?The arena has a sellout figure of 9,982 seats. At this number, the Harry A. Gampel Pavilion ranks as the Northeast’s and New England’s largest on-campus facility. An aluminum dome and its 2,200 panels serve as one of the Pavilion’s highlights.
Will the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament be played in Storrs?The NCAA selects venues for regional ("Sweet 16" and "Elite Eight") and "Final Four" games often years in advance of a particular year's tournament. First- and second-round games are not chosen in advance like the regionals and the Final Four. Where these subregional games are held depends upon the performance of teams that aspire to host first- and second-round games. Specifically, the campuses of the top 16 seeds in the tournament host subregional games. (In 2019, the South Carolina Gamecocks played first and second round games in Charlotte because its campus arena was hosting games in the men's basketball tournament that year.) Thus, if UConn earns a one-seed in the tournament, as it has frequently done, Lady Huskies fans can expect to have some home games for the first and second rounds.
