NCAA switches women's regional site to Bridgeport
Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - The NCAA announced Friday it has moved a women's basketball regional site from Trenton, N.J. to Bridgeport, Conn.
On Oct. 15, the NCAA relocated six 2013 championships from New Jersey because of a new state law there allowing sports wagering on professional and collegiate games.
The games March 30 and April 1 at Webster Bank Arena at Harbor Yard will be co-hosted by the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference and Fairfield. The winner of the regional will advance to the 2013 Women's Final Four in New Orleans on April 7 and 9.
"Bridgeport has proven to be a great host for our championship in the past and we are excited to be making a return this March," Carolayne Henry said, chair of the Division I Women's Basketball Committee and senior associate commissioner of the Mountain West Conference. "We appreciate both the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference and Fairfield University stepping forward to host because of this special circumstance and know our student-athletes and fans will enjoy a first-class experience."
