For women’s basketball, a few years and rules changes later, it appears that the pace of games has improved, scoring is up and a majority of fans, coaches and the student-athletes have come to embrace the new look and feel of the game.
The 2015-16 season is flying by so quickly that it’s hard to keep up with all of the creative ideas being implemented on campus. Not to worry. The next women’s basketball webinar is scheduled for 2 p.m. Eastern time Feb. 11 and will feature best practices to date, including an emphasis on in-game entertainment with the new four-quarter format. The NCAA staff also will provide details for schools that have the potential to host the first and second rounds on their campuses. The full agenda is below. Register today.
Terry Gawlik, senior associate athletics director for sports administration and senior woman administrator at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will serve as the next chair of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee during the 2016-17 academic year.
