    I agree having only one channel cover the women’s tournament is not good especially when all the games are not covered. Yesterday for instance – none of the Notre Dame game was covered. If we are going to only have one channel then lets give all the teams equal exposure…they ALL deserve to be there and be shown.

  2. Lynn Adams says:

    I agree with others who have commented on the fact that the women’s games are on only one channel. This is the big dance for women’s basketball too. I feel we have made great progress over the years but the media continues to treat women’s sports as less important. Seeing college lacrosse and race car driving on the other channels is an insult that the women’s programs do not deserve.

  3. Why aren’t the women’s games on multiple channels like the men? DIRECT TV had the audacity to play the St. Bonaventure game for about 5 minutes and then switched to Baylor and UCSB. There was no place to watch my SBU Bonnies play. What a jip! I’m sure South Florida as well at St. Bonaventure fans would like to see their teams play. There’s enough alternate channels, let’s use them!

  4. it’s a shame we still haven’t progrees to the point the women tourney is on one channel.

    special shout out to the Bears get mean Ms. Britt and u win a tittle, a nice slam dunk to start a game would be nice sends a clear message.

  5. It’s nice you televise the womens games on at least one channel you don’t have to pay for. However, it show how out of touch this country is the the games are only on one channel, sorry.

    Special shout out to the Baylor Bears, it you get mean Ms. Britt that the only way u win a title demand the damn ball.

  6. Lynne Fretz says:

    Really appreciate the printable bracket and the tv schedule.

    Am glad that coverage of the women’s game keeps getting better. When there is a very close game happening I hope tv directors will not ‘whip around’ to the next game site, until there is a lull in the action. Robin Roberts, please come on back for the Final Four call with Carolyn,Kara, and the gang! More chalk talk too please.

    Thank you for the tv times.
