    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — In 40 days, the best women’s college basketball players in the country will play for a championship in downtown Minneapolis. Target Center hosts the Final Four in April.

This time around, circumstances of the pandemic present a very different place. “The NCAA Women’s Final Four is coming back in the same time as our city and our downtown will be coming back in fine form. So this helps to give us that shot in the arm that we need,” Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said. “It comes just as a bunch of restaurants are opening all across our city. It comes as these mandates that we’ve had are all getting lifted.” Basketball player Rachel Banham said that this event brings the opportunity to cast Minneapolis...
    Transgender college swimmer Lia Thomas will be eligible to compete in the Ivy League conference championships despite a recent NCAA rule change, officials have confirmed. Thomas, a University of Pennsylvania senior, will be able to compete in the conference finals scheduled for February 16 to 19 at Harvard University, an Ivy League official told Swimming World Magazine.  Recent rule changes from the NCAA and USA Swimming have thrown Thomas' ability to compete in the NCAA Championships into doubt, but the Ivy League confirmed that for this season, the new rules do not apply to any meets prior to the NCAA tournament. 'The recent rule changes do not impact Lia's eligibility for this month's Ivy League Women's Swimming & Diving Championships as the effective date for this unprecedented midseason NCAA policy change begins with the 2022 NCAA Winter Championships,' an Ivy League spokesperson told Swimming World.

    (CBS Chicago)- We’re a little over three years to the day removed from when college basketball fans were first introduced to Porter Moser and Loyola-Chicago when the Ramblers scored a pair of shocking upsets over 6-seed Miami and 3-seed Tennessee in the opening rounds of the 2018 NCAA Tournament. With Sister Jean watching on from the sidelines, the 11-seed Ramblers made their way through the South region one upset at a time in nail biter after nail biter to earn a spot in the Final Four, capturing the nation’s hearts and attention along the way. This season, the Ramblers are back, this time as an 8-seed, having run through the Missouri Valley with the best defense in the nation by the numbers. There are a pair of familiar faces in MVC Player of the Year Cameron Krutwig and guard Lucas Williamson who both played roles on that Final Four squad. Sister Jean, at 101-years-old, will be in Indianapolis to cheer the team on. So the big question is, with a higher seed, can the Ramblers recapture that magic? READ MORE:...

    (CBS Chicago) — The NCAA Tournament field is set. The entire regular season as well as the conference tournaments were all building up to this. After the cancellation in 2020 and the subsequent year of COVID restrictions, March Madness is back on. But it will be a little different. All of this year’s March Madness will take place in Indiana rather than at venues spread out across the country. In fact, 55 of those 67 games will be played in Indianapolis. The coverage will span four networks — CBS, TBS, TNT and truTV — with all games also streamed via NCAA March Madness Live. Games that air on CBS will also be available for streaming on Paramount+. Staging 67 games at a variety of locations for a variety of viewing outlets is a logistical challenge in normal times. The ongoing pandemic adds additional layers of difficulty.

There are dangerous double-digit seeds that will pose significant threats, from No. 10 Virginia Tech to No. 14 Colgate to No. 15 Oral Roberts.

    Cinderellas are what makes March Madness so special and these five dark horses in the 2021 NCAA Tournament field are primed to make a storied run.  College basketball’s field of 68 has been set and March Madness is finally back. With the 2021 NCAA Tournament bracket having been revealed on Selection Sunday, we can welcome back the best time of year in the sport after the tournament was canceled last year at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. To be sure, the NCAA Tournament will have to still navigate the virus as March Madness will take place in a centralized location, Indianapolis. Moreover, there are replacement teams in place among the First Four Out that could fill in if a program has a positive test within it. But at the end of the day, we still have the opportunity to watch teams vie for a National Championship and see if another Cinderella dark horse emerges.

    Texas storm: About 390,000 Texans are still under boil water advisories from the winter storm Senate confirms Cardona as Education secretary The National Invitation Tournament (NIT) announced on Monday that it is cutting its field in half and holding the entire tournament in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex area in 2021. The 32-team NIT is typically held on campus sites until the semifinals round but will instead be held at the Comerica Center in Frisco, Texas, and at the UNT Coliseum on North Texas' campus in Denton, Texas. © Provided by CBS Sports CBS Sports' Matt Norlander reported last week that the field would be shrunk to 16 and likely moved to the Dallas area. The NCAA said the decision to host the tournament in one geographic location was made with the goal of hosting a healthy event for all participants amid the pandemic, which tracks with the organization's decision to host the NCAA Tournament this year in Indianapolis. Because of the reduced field size, the bracket of the NIT will be populated via a selection process of at-large...

Sports Baylor won the last NCAA women's basketball title in 2019. (AP Photo/Mark LoMoglio) March Madness and the coronavirus. In 2020, the two couldn't coexist. On March 12 of last year, one day after COVID-19 was officially declared a pandemic, the NCAA canceled its women's and men's basketball tournaments. Hundreds of hoopers never played a college game again. The women's game was particularly impacted. A transcendent star didn't get her final shot at glory. But a year later, the Madness is back. There's a new star, and perhaps a dozen teams that could realistically cut down nets in April – as long as they can navigate a tournament slightly altered by COVID. The 2021 NCAA women's basketball tournament will take place this month and next in a bubble-like atmosphere in Texas. Crowds will be limited. The rhythms of March will feel a bit off. But the basketball...
    INDIANAPOLIS — The NCAA is giving Indiana an exclusive ticket to showcase March Madness and the basketball-crazed state can’t wait to take center stage this spring. The NCAA announced Monday that its showcase event — the Division I men’s basketball tournament, all 67 games of it — will be played entirely in or near Indianapolis. The hope is to limit the possibility that the coronavirus pandemic cancels the wildly popular and lucrative tournament for a second consecutive season. “There are a number of world-class facilities in a close location and that was critical because you have to run a large number of games simultaneously that you can manage and control,” NCAA President Mark Emmert said. “There were a number of cities that were very interested in hosting this event, but the immediate opportunity to do this in Indianapolis was pretty self-evident for several reasons. For one, we were already going to be there.” Indy was already scheduled to host the Final Four and it didn’t take long for the city to emerge as the favorite. The original plan was for...
