The Pac-12 conference announced a pair of changes to women’s basketball on Monday afternoon. Beginning this next season, the conference will now have a permanent open date in the conference tournament and will play a 20-game conference schedule beginning in 2022-23. These changes were recommended by the Senior Woman Administrators Community and announced by the Pac-12 Council.
The first of the two changes that will take place immediately is adding in an open date during the conference tournament. Prior to last season, the conference had been playing the tournament in consecutive days beginning on Thursday with the conclusion coming Sunday.
