The 2018 NCAA Women’s Basketball Albany Regional returns to the Times Union Center for the first time since 2015 when the top-ranked Connecticut Huskies defeated Texas and Dayton on their way to capturing their 10th NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship in program history. The 2015 NCAA Women’s Basketball Albany Regional led all of the four regional sites that year with a total of 15,949 attendees.
“In 2015, Albany demonstrated that it could become a regular site for the NCAA Women’s Basketball Regionals when it set an attendance record its first-time hosting,” noted MAAC Commissioner Rich Ensor. “The community support in 2015 was a crucial element in the awarding of the 2018 and 2019 regionals, as well as the 2020 NCAA Men’s Basketball First & Second Rounds. With the recent opening of the Albany Capital Center and the major renovations to the Times Union Center, the stage is set for an even better experience for the participating teams, student athletes and fans this coming March.”
