One step closer to Friday-Sunday dates for Final Four

The Division I Women's Basketball Committee approved the recommendation to change the dates of future Final Fours.

If the recommendations are approved by Division I Championships/Sports Management Cabinet, the women's Final Four will be played on a Friday and Sunday after years of having the national semifinals on Sunday with the national title game on Tuesday as soon as the 2015 tournament.

Another of the recommendations set forth from Val Ackerman's "White Paper" is that the top 16 seeds will host the first and second rounds beginning with the 2015 tournament.

One recommendation that was not approved was moving the women's Final Four to the weekend after the men's Final Four. Also, the committee agreed with the WBCA that allowing teams to host regionals was not best for the competitive interest of the game so beginning in 2015, regionals will be played on neutral courts.
