"This move will be a win-win for the student-athletes, coaches and fans. We anticipate larger crowds, increased excitement and better television coverage during the first and second rounds. The big winner overall will be women's basketball."
- Arizona State head women's hoop coach Charli Turner-Thorne, speaking about the NCAA's move to 16 pre-determined sites for the post-season tournament, beginning in 2009.

Meanwhile, at NCAA HQ, the NCAA has approved a recommendation that will, beginning with the 2009 championship, move to a post-season tournament model of 16 pre-determined sites with four teams each for the first and second rounds.
