After controversy arose this spring over apparent inequities between the NCAA men's and women's Division I tournaments, the women's basketball oversight committee revealed that it is mulling major changes to address rebranding and "participation opportunities" in the women's game. In a press release Tuesday, the NCAA said the committee has met repeatedly since the season ended in early April amid an ongoing gender equity review by Kaplan, Hecker & Fink LLP into how the facilities at the women's tournament lagged far behind the amenities at the men's tournament.
