The Women’s Basketball Oversight Committee will ensure that appropriate oversight of women’s basketball is maintained, will enhance the development and public perception of the sport and make recommendations related to regular-season and postseason women’s basketball. The committee will prioritize enhancement of the student-athlete educational experience (academically and athletically), and in doing so, promote student-athletes’ personal growth and leadership development.

The Women’s Basketball Oversight Committee will supervise qualifications and/or selection procedures for the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship. The committee will review recommendations from the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee and process other issues related to the administration of the championship. The committee will assume many of the duties of the former NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Issues Committee and will provide direction to the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Rules Committee regarding playing rules. The committee will be comprised of representatives from each divisional subgroup.
