NCAA hosting women’s basketball summit

The NCAA will host a women’s basketball summit today with top coaches, administrators and committee members to discuss the paper that Val Ackerman submitted in late June with suggestions to improve the state of the game. The summit will serve as a prelude to a bigger gathering at the women’s Final Four next April in Nashville. Many of Ackerman’s suggestions were aimed at boosting attendance, which has become stagnant over the past few years. Last season the NCAA averaged 5,466 for all tournament rounds, which was 17th since the tournament began in 1982.
