The development of collegiate women’s Division I basketball took a major step forward a few weeks ago, with the formation of a new NCAA governing body.
The Women’s Basketball Oversight Committee will oversee day-to-day decision-making in all aspects of the sport, including governance of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee. The 13-member panel includes athletic directors, conference commissioners and others whose aim is to develop women’s basketball overall, and to assist student athletes.
USA Basketball will conduct open trials for the Women’s U16 National Team, which will be held from May 23 through May 27 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., the organization announced Thursday. The squad selected will compete in the 2013 FIBA Americas U16 Championship where they will vie with teams representing seven other North, Central and South American nations for a berth in next year’s U17 World Championships.
