NCAA DII Women’s Basketball Championship Brings Out the Best in Columbus

Mar 21

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.
