By Lynsey Warren | As the Head Coach of Ohio Dominican Women’s Basketball and the 2017 Elite Eight Tournament Director, I am SO thrilled that the big week is finally upon us! We have known that the NCAA DII Women’s Basketball Elite 8 was coming to Ohio Dominican University (ODU) and Columbus for over three years now. My excitement, the excitement of our university community and the excitement of all our partners throughout Columbus has grown tremendously in the time leading up to this event. Having grown up on the north side of Columbus and spent a majority of my coaching career right here in the city, I have a deep appreciation for everything the city has to offer.
We have the greatest state institution in the country in The Ohio State University along with tremendous smaller, liberal arts universities like ODU. We have world-class businesses such as Nationwide Insurance and Cardinal Health, among many others. We have beautiful city neighborhoods in Clintonville, the Short North and German Village. We host world-renowned events like The Arnold Classic, The Memorial and numerous NCAA Championship events brought to Columbus through the hard work of the Greater Columbus Sports Commission. There are countless reasons as to why these institutions, neighborhoods and events thrive, but at the core, it is the spirit of the people here.

BLOG: Division III Semifinals at Capital University Begins NCAA Women’s Basketball Run in Central OhioFeb 29
By Steve Wartenberg | There’s a lot of history in the office of Capital University’s Dixie Jeffers, including the basketballs from her 500th and 600th career wins and the championship rings from the two NCAA Division III Women’s National Championships the Crusaders have won.
And now, Dixie and Capital are about to add more history, as they prepare to host the NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Semifinals on March 19.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Capital University and Crusaders Athletics are proud to announce that the 2016 NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Championship semifinals will be hosted inside The Capital Center. The NCAA has granted hosting rights to Capital for this year’s national semifinals, which will be held on March 19, 2016.
The NCAA has voted that this year the women’s basketball finals for all three divisions will be hosted in one location, Indianapolis, Indiana. The move will help commemorate the 35th anniversary of the NCAA Women’s Basketball Championships. Leading to the Division I, II and III national championship games will be a path of neutral-site host institutions that will create “The Road to Indy”. The first four rounds of games will be held on campus sites. The national semifinals will still be held at a predetermined site, as they have been since 1999.
