Future host cities are Charlotte in '96, Cincinnati in '97 and Kansas City in '98.

It's the greater profile we can give women's basketball on SportsCenter, ESPN Radio, ESPNET and other areas" (N.Y. TIMES, 4/9). UConn's Rebecca Lobo was ABC's "Person of the Week" ("World News Tonight," ABC, 4/7). Lobo and UConn coach Geno Auriemma both appeared on "CBS This Morning" (CBS, 4/10).
