Wilmington Set To Host Atlantic 10 Women’s Basketball Championship

Wilmington’s Chase Fieldhouse will be the site of the Atlantic 10 Conference Women’s Basketball Championship March 2-6. The 2,500-seat arena is the home of the NBA G League Delaware Blue Coats.

This marks the first of a three-year commitment for the A-10 tournament at the Chase Fieldhouse and returns the league to hosting its annual championship at a neutral site.

“It is a state-of-the-art arena perfectly located geographically for our women’s championship,” said Atlantic 10 Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade. “Partnering with BPG | SPORTS, the City of Wilmington, the 76ers, and the NBA G League is a win-win for all.”

The Atlantic 10 Championship format includes all 14 teams playing at the host site. The first round gets underway Wed., March 2, followed by four second-round games on Thursday. The four quarterfinal games will tip-off Friday followed by the semifinal round on Saturday, which will be televised live nationally on CBS Sports Network. The finals will air live on ESPNU on Sunday. 

    The Atlantic 10 has sent 11 different teams to postseason play over the last five completed seasons. The league has also earned eight NCAA Tournament bids, including three at-large selections, and 19 WNIT bids during that timeframe.
