          Atlanta was awarded the 2003 Women's Final Four at the
     GA Dome, and the NCAA picked New Orleans from a field of
     five final cities to host the 2004 Women's Final Four at the
     New Orleans Arena (New Orleans Arena).  In Detroit,
     Angelique Chengelis writes that the Detroit group was 
     "confident they made a solid presentation."  Mid-Continent
     Commissioner John Steinbrecher, a member of the group:
     "We're obviously disappointed because we put a lot of work
     into this.  But at the same time, it was a learning
     experience."  Chengelis notes that 12 cities made "initial
     bids" and Detroit, Charlotte and Memphis were finalists
     (DETROIT NEWS, 7/7).  Charlotte Regional Sports Commission
     Exec Dir Jeff Beaver, on the city's bid: "Quite frankly I'm
     a little surprised. ... They told us they'd be interested
     down the road" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 7/7).
