ROCHESTER, Minn. — The 2018 NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Championship will be hosted by Saint Mary’s University and Rochester MN Sports on Friday and Saturday, March 16-17, at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, Minn.

“We’re excited to be part of this collaborative effort that will bring Rochester some great exposure,” said Nikki Fennern, Saint Mary’s athletic director.

The NCAA selected the hosts and site in 2013, after Saint Mary’s and Rochester Sports worked together to prepare a bid.

The national semifinal games will be played at 5 and 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 16, which will include halftime shows from the Special Olympics Basketball and Cheer Team as well as the Just for Kix Dance Team.
