Dream position has bittersweet end for Turnham

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – The NCAA Division I women's basketball committee spent months and countless hours pouring over information, data, watching games and doing diligence to make sure the most deserving teams were amongst the field for the 2020 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament.

Middle Tennessee Senior Associate Athletics Director Diane Turnham was in her fifth year on the committee and was its chairperson – a distinct honor for those who serve.

Due to threats of Covid-19, this committee was unable to complete its mission as the NCAA canceled both the men's and women's tournament amidst growing concerns regarding the coronavirus.
