LSU is one of eight sites to be awarded first and second round contests. It is the first time the Maravich Center will serve as the host arena since 2004 when LSU also hosted the first and second round games.
"We're very excited about being selected as a site for the NCAA Women's Basketball tournament in 2008," said Judy Southard, LSU Associate Athletics Director/SWA. "This has become quite a high profile event and we're elated to be able to showcase Baton Rouge and the LSU campus. This will be a tremendous opportunity for fans of women's basketball to see eight of the best teams in the country in action."
Last year, the Lady Tigers posted a 33-3 overall mark, reached a second straight NCAA Final Four and won the program's first Southeastern Conference regular season title.
LSU also finished 10th in the nation in home attendance this past season, averaging over 7,300 fans per game in the Maravich Center. LSU had four crowds of over 10,000 last season, including a record 15,233 for the victory over Tennessee on Feb. 10.
Other schools awarded first and second round sites for the 2008 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament include: New Mexico, Fairfield, Maryland, Iowa State, Old Dominion, Stanford and Purdue.
Dates for the 2008 first and second round NCAA Tournament games will be either March 22 and 24 or March 23 and 25.
