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.
