NORFOLK, Va. - Old Dominion University was selected as a regional site for the 2013 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament, the NCAA announced Monday.

"What a great honor for ODU and Norfolk to host the 2013 women's basketball regional finals. Hosting this March Madness Tournament event will allow us to showcase to the rest of the nation the great women's basketball fans that generously support our Lady Monarch basketball program," ODU Athletic Director Dr. Wood Selig said. "Crowning a Regional Champion on their way to the Final Four will be another tremendous sporting event for our region that will be sure to draw significant community interest and support."
