New Orleans to Host Women’s Final Four

Share Button

Women in sports is a popular topic these days, with Danica Patrick winning a historic pole position at the Daytona 500 and Olympic downhill champion Lindsey Vonn vowing to recover in time for the 2014 Games in Russia. Meanwhile college basketball fans are looking forward to the upcoming NCAA tournament, which will culminate in the Final Four games being held in New Orleans.

This will be the third time the Women’s Final Four will be held in New Orleans. In 1991 the Final Four was held at the UNO Lakefront Arena and won by the Tennessee Lady Volunteers.  In 2004 the championship game was held at the New Orleans Arena which saw the Lady Volunteers succumb to the UCONN Huskies.

This year’s semi-finals and championship games will be held at the New Orleans Arena. The 2013 champion Baylor University Lady Bears may return to defend their title. Other high ranking teams that are expected to compete in the tournament include Duke, Stanford, Notre Dame, Penn State, and Kentucky.

Sports fans should start searching now for great New Orleans deals and Final Four tickets. The semi-final games will be played on April 7th, with the Championship Game on April 9th starting at 6:30pm CDT.

    While I’m not a big fan of WBB, I think it’s great to see the games get bigger and bigger. Reminds me of the movie “A League of Their Own.” In some ways, THESE athletes are even bigger and better than the guys. Sorry, fellas!

    New Orleans is a great city. Let’s hope the ladies DO NOT earn their beads, though… unless they look like Kathering Webb. Yowza!

    My family went to New Orleans a couple years ago. It was great. Had my 1st po boy sandwich. So good… and slightly strange.

    I love women’s basketball. Makes me think that K-State’s Collin Klein married well. Too bad his wife didn’t keep up with the game after a couple years.

    Go Bears! I love Baylor and everything Big 12. Good job, ladies. Hope to see you there this year.

    I’m totally rooting for DUKE!

    New Orleans would make for a real awesome vacation. I’m thinking I need to make a trip down there for Mardis Gras!
