Some coaches don't want to see the change the 10 second rule because of the disparity of talent that the elite teams have. Teams like UConn with a great defense and talent would destroy the average teams with their lock down defens

Agree with the thought of having Vegas host the final rounds of the Women's tournament until the Final Four. I would probably include Orlando in the mix and split the Final 16. East and South go to Orlando the rest go to Vegas. Both places are destination cities and would draw families and fans.

Seems like a terrible idea to me.

The local population has shown little interest in WCBB. And vacationers are not going to give up one of their days to go see WCBB. So you're entirely relying on folks traveling to those areas to see WCBB. I don't see it.

The Regionals do well when they're located within reasonable distance of the schools involved.

nb: Debbie does point out she's "kidding" about Las Vegas, but is not against the idea of a centralized/permanent host site. (Something I think should happen with the Olympics -- rotate across four sites and revenue share)
