IOWA CITY – The 2023 NCAA First and Second Round sessions, featuring the University of Iowa, Southeastern Louisiana, Florida State and Georgia women’s basketball teams, set for Friday, March 17 and Sunday, March 19 in Carver-Hawkeye Arena is sold out. The announcement was made Friday by the UI Athletics Department. TV designation has not yet been announced.
No. 2 Iowa (26-6, 15-3) and No. 15 SE Louisiana (21-9, 14-4) square off in Carver’s second consecutive women’s basketball sell out this season and the seventh women’s basketball sellout in Iowa history (1985, 1988, 2022, 2023). The Second Round game will denote the third straight of the season and eighth sellout in Iowa women’s basketball history.
Last season, Iowa was bounced from the women’s NCAA Tournament by upstart Creighton, inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The No. 2 seed Iowa Hawkeyes fell to the No. 10 seed Creighton Bluejays, 64-62.
