INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Committee announced the field of 64 teams for the 2011 championship.

Forty-three conferences have been awarded automatic qualification for the 2011 Championship. One independent team was selected from Pool B, which consists of independent institutions and institutions that are members of conferences that do not meet the requirements for automatic qualification. The final 20 berths were reserved for Pool C, which are institutions from automatic-qualifying conferences that are not the conference champion and any remaining Pool B teams.

Sixteen sites will host first- and second-round competition on Friday and Saturday, March 4-5. Second-round winners will advance to one of four sectional sites March 11-12. Winners of the four sectional games will advance to the national semifinals March 18.

All games, except the finals, will be played on the campuses of competing institutions. The finals will be conducted at Illinois Wesleyan University's Shirk Center on March 19.
