The NCAA said in August 2019 that the NCAA Women’s Bowling Championship would increase to 16 teams in 2020, up from 12 in 2019, with a format closer to NCAA basketball featuring four regionals of four teams each and a "Final Four" national finals, as I detailed in this story.
The tournament expanded from 10 to 12 teams for the 2019 tournament, as I detailed in this story.
The tournament didn’t happen in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but it will happen starting Wednesday...
