NCAA opens up weightlifting facility for women’s teams
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Teams at the NCAA women’s basketball tournament finally have a weight room.
By Saturday, a day after the NCAA was heavily criticized for not having an adequate facility for the women’s teams to lift, the organization had created a fully stocked workout room at the convention center in San Antonio near the practice courts.
The NCAA had originally told teams in a manual that there wouldn’t be a weight room facility until after the second round when only 16 teams would remain.
