NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship TicketsWhile the men’s Division I championship has existed since 1939, the women’s Division I championship was established in the decade following the passage of Title 9 in 1972. That law mandated equal treatment of both genders in public and private educational institutions receiving federal funding. First played in 1982 when Louisiana Tech won it all, the women’s championship had seen the US southern states dominate in its first decade, but the powerful University of Connecticut and University of Tennessee began their battle for basketball domination in the mid-1990s. While the action has traveled to Texas on more than one occasion, Baylor University in Waco won its first NCAA women’s basketball championship in 2005, following up that win with wins in 2012 and 2019.
