NCAA Womens Basketball Tournament Tickets

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) holds an annual college basketball tournament for women known as the Women's Division I Basketball Championship. This tournament is held every April ever since the first Women’s Championship was inaugurated in the 1981-82 season.  Ever since the tournament was first launched, the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament has successively become more and more popular each year. From the 2017 college basketball season, the women’s championship game will be considered the penultimate game of the overall season.  If you’re interested in college basketball, make sure to get yourself a pair of NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament tickets to be a part of all of the action when it goes down.

 

This tournament is also part of what is collectively known as March Madness or the Big Dance. This time of the year is categorized by fervent public and media frenzy over college sports. 

A General Overview of the Tournament

The Division I Basketball Championship has been held every year after it was first inaugurated in the 1981-82 season. Prior to this tournament, there was the AIAW Women's Basketball Tournament. This tournament was an annual tournament which was held for a decade before the NCAA took over.

Since 2003, there has been a marked increase in the amount of interest and coverage of the Women's Division I Championship. This has resulted in the championship game of the tournament being moved to Tuesday right after the men’s championship game which is held on Monday.

As of 2017, the women’s championship game will be the penultimate game of the college basketball season.

The Format of the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament

The tournament goes on throughout March, while the championship game of the tournament is held in April. There are a total of 64 teams which qualify to play in the tournament. Of these 64 teams, half of them, or 32 teams earn a spot in the tournament by securing automatic bids after winning their respective conference tournaments.

The remaining 32 teams are chosen by the NCAA Selection Committee and are given "at-large" bids.

The entirety of the tournament is divided into four regional tournaments. In each of these pockets, each team from the region is seeded from 1 to 16. This is done by the committee in order to make each of the four regions begin on a relatively equal footing.

Seeding is carried out in order to determine which team will face who. Typically, the top seeded team in each region play against the number 16 team. The #2 team play against the #15 team and so on. Tournament seeding is based on a variety of different factors including Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) data, team rankings, and win-loss records.

The tournament is played in a single elimination format.

The Brackets

The NCAA Division I Basketball Championship is played in brackets. The 64 teams are divided up into four regional groups who will play separate tournaments in order to make it to the championship round.

 Beginning around the third week of March, the first round, or round of 64 is played. This is where the seeding comes into play; a team’s number determines who they will be playing in this round.

There are initially eight games which are held in each of the regional groups. Since this is a single elimination tournament, there will be eight teams from each region that will make it through to the next round. The second round is typically held in the fourth week of March and is called the round of 32. There are four brackets per region in this round.

The four teams who win this round in each region will go on to play in the regional semifinals or the ‘Sweet 16’. This is followed by the ‘Elite 8’ or regional finals in the last week of March.

Top Teams of the NCAA Women’s Basketball Division

Over the years, some teams have consistently proven that they are a force to reckon with in NCAA Women’s Basketball. Since 1982 when the first tournament officially kicked off, there have been 16 winners of the NCAA Women’s Basketball tournament.

The winning teams have included Louisiana Tech, Connecticut, USC, Texas, Tennessee, Purdue, and Baylor. Connecticut has had the most wins with 9 NCAA Women’s Basketball Championships to their name.
