Columbus, Ohio; Dallas; Denver; Nashville, Tenn.; New Orleans; San Antonio and Tampa Bay are the other finalists. If Indianapolis wins the bid, the event will be held in Lucas Oil Stadium.
Site visits to each city will be conducted this September and October. Following the site visits to each prospective city, the finalists will participate in a presentation session with the committee in mid-November. The 2012-16 Women’s Final Four sites will be announced in mid-November.
“It was an extremely hard decision for the committee to narrow the list of finalists to these eight cities and it will be an even more difficult decision to determine the five cities that will serve as future hosts for the Women’s Final Four,” said Judy Southard, chair of the Division I Women’s Basketball Committee and senior associate director of athletics at Louisiana State University.
