World Conflict Alters Start Times for NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament
March 21, 2003
The NCAA has made the decision to move the start times for its Saturday night women's basketball games in McArthur Court back one hour due to the conflict in Iraq and its effects on the television contracts covering the men's and women's collegiate basketball tournaments.
The start time for Saturday's first round NCAA women's basketball tournament game between Wisconsin-Green Bay and the University of Washington will be moved from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., with the the second game between LSU and Southwest Texas to commence 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game.
Doors at McArthur Court will still open at 4:30 p.m.
