URI Hosting NCAA Women’s Basketball Regional

The road to the Final Four in women’s basketball runs through Kingston, as URI’s Ryan Center is hosting the 2012 NCAA Women’s Basketball East Regional.

Four of the country’s top teams will converge at the Ryan Center on Sunday, March 25 for Sweet Sixteen play. The winners of the two games will then meet on Tuesday, March 27 for a spot in the Final Four.

“We are thrilled to have been chosen to host the 2012 NCAA East Regional Women’s Basketball Championship,” said URI Director of Athletics Thorr Bjorn. “I know it is going to provide a tremendous benefit, not only to URI athletics, but the entire University and State of Rhode Island, for that matter. We are looking forward to putting on a first class event and ask all of our alumni and fans to come out and see some great basketball.”

Tickets for all sessions are $50 for adults, $35 for youths and students, and $40 each for groups of 20 or more, and may be purchased at the Ryan Center Box Office. Orders may also be placed over the phone at 401.874.7297 or via the Web through GoRhody.com.
