The head of the NCAA women's basketball tournament is pushing to review potential changes to the event's format this summer, a year sooner than previously planned.

The women's basketball committee was scheduled to revisit its decision to hold the first two rounds of the tournament at campus sites for highly ranked teams and to hold its second-weekend games in two sites rather than four after the 2025 championships. Vice President of Women's Basketball Lynn Holzman said she believes they have seen enough data about the growth of the sport to consider changes this year.

"Given the trajectory of success we've experienced over the last couple years, I see no reason to wait to start that review," Holzman told ESPN on Tuesday afternoon.
