    Default OT - Keeping Up With NCAA D-1 Women's Hoops Information.

    For fans of collegiate, women's hoops:

    1. Cal State Northridge will not compete in women's basketball during the 2020-21 season after six players elected not to participate due to coronavirus-related concerns and a seventh was unable to enter the country due to travel restrictions, the school announced Thursday. That left the Big West program with only six available players.

    3. Kentucky women's basketball coach Matthew Mitchell has retired after 13 seasons with the Wildcats, athletic director Mitch Barnhart announced Thursday. Mitchell, with a record of 303-133 at Kentucky, is the winningest coach in the program's history. Mitchell had surgery over the summer for blood on the brain, which happened after he fell while on vacation and suffered a concussion.

She was joined on the five-player team by sophomore Aliyah Boston of South Carolina, who was also a unanimous pick. Seniors Dana Evans of Louisville, Aari McDonald of Arizona and Michaela Onyenwere of UCLA round out the squad. Two out of Five are from the Pac-12.

    From ESPN:

    No action from NCAA committee on pair of minority hiring policies

    An NCAA committee this week declined to vote on or recommend two policies that broaden opportunities for minority candidates to interview for high-profile jobs in college athletics.

    On Tuesday, the NCAA's committee to promote cultural diversity and equity (CPCDE) discussed both Oregon's Rooney Rule and the Bill Russell Rule, which require at least one qualified minority candidate to be interviewed for head-coaching and administrative positions. Oregon's Rooney Rule, a state law since Jan. 1, 2010, requires state schools to interview at least one qualified minority candidate for all head coach and athletic director openings. The Russell Rule, adopted in August by the West Coast Conference, requires all member institutions "to include a member of a traditionally underrepresented community in the pool of final candidates for every athletic director, senior administrator, head coach and full-time assistant coach position."

    In a statement to ESPN, the NCAA said the CPCDE applauds the WCC, endorses the Russell Rule and will "continue conversations with conference commissioners in support of the rule." But the committee did not recommend either policy to the NCAA board of governors for potential implementation, either with hires in the NCAA's national office or with its member institutions.
