Committe reveals bracket for DIII tournament

DIII Women's Basketball: 2015 Selection Show

INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Committee announced the field of 64 teams for the 2015 championship on Monday.

Forty-four conferences have been awarded automatic qualification for the 2015 championship. The final 20 berths were reserved for Pool C, which includes institutions from automatic-qualifying conferences that are not the conference champion, and any Pool B teams. Based on sponsorship numbers for 2014-15, there were no Pool B berths for this year’s championship.

Sixteen first/second-round sites will be conducted March 6-7. Second-round winners will advance to one of four sectional sites March 13-14. Winners of the four sectional sites will advance to the national semifinals March 20-21. All games, except the semifinals and final, will be played on the campuses of competing institutions. The finals will be conducted at Van Noord Arena on the campus of Calvin in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
