ESPN Presents Women’s College Basketball Champ Week Presented by SoFi; More than 20 Conference Champions Crowned

Wednesday, March 3 marks the official start to Champ Week Presented by SoFi, making ESPN the home of more than 20 women’s basketball conference championships. Nearly 200 matchups will air across ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPNEWS, SEC Network, ACC Network, ESPN+, ESPN3, SEC Network+ and ACC Network Extra through Sunday, March 14, as teams punch their tickets to this year’s NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Tournament.

Champ Week Highlights

  • Teams from 23 Division I conferences will earn their spot in the NCAA Women’s Tournament by winning their conference titles live on ESPN Networks
  • Championship Sunday: The ACC (Noon, ESPN2), SEC (2 p.m., ESPN2) and Pac-12 (8 p.m., ESPN2) Championships will all be televised on Sunday, March 7. The Atlantic 10 (noon, ESPNU), Big 12 (1 p.m., ESPN2) and Northeast (2 p.m., ESPNU) Championships will be televised on Sunday, March 14.
  • There will be 14 televised conference championships, with the remaining nine offered digitally.
  • All of the nearly 200 matchups will be available in the ESPN App.

In-Depth ACC and SEC Tournament Coverage

  • SEC Network will televise the first, second and quarterfinal rounds of the SEC Women’s Basketball Championship with the semifinals and championships available on ESPNU and ESPN2, respectively
    • SEC Network analyst/reporter Steffi Sorensen will be on site in Greenville, reporting from the sidelines of every game as the SEC crowns a new champion. Courtney Lyle & Carolyn Peck and Eric Frede & Tamika Catchings will be on the call throughout the SEC Women’s Tournament.
    • SEC Now gets things started for SEC Network’s Champ Week coverage in studio in Charlotte, as analysts Andy Landers and Andraya Carter join host Alyssa Lang to provide pre-game, halftime and post-game insights throughout the week
  • The first, second and quarterfinal rounds of the ACC Women’s Basketball Championship will be available on ACC Network Extra with the semifinals and championship televised on ACC Network and ESPN2 respectively.
    • Beth Mowins and Debbie Antonelli will be on the call for the semifinals and championship games.
    • Nothing But Net, ACCN’s signature basketball program, will be live in-studio with pre and postgame coverage throughout the tournament. The ladies night edition will be hosted by Kelsey Riggs with analysts Kelly Gramlich, Muffet McGraw and Monica McNutt.

Compliments of ESPN.com and espnW

  • com will track Champ Week brackets and automatic NCAA tournament berths in real time, in addition to predicting the player of the year in each conference, as well as the team expected to clinch the tournament’s bid.
    Bracketology projections from bracketologist Charlie Creme will be updated nearly every day leading into Selection Monday.
  • com’s Mechelle Voepel will examine the debate regarding players in the running for national player of the year.
  • Ahead of the Mountain West Conference tournament, ESPN.com’s David Hale will take a closer look at name, image and likeness (NIL) rights in college sports, and how the real beneficiaries of expected changes won’t be sports’ biggest superstars but social media celebrities, such as Fresno State’s Cavinder twins, athletes whose accomplishments are dwarfed by massive TikTok followings.
  • Before Champ Week ends, ESPN.com will name its National Player of the Year, Freshman of the Year, Coach of the Year and All-Americans.

All Roads Lead to the Alamodome
Teams receiving NCAA Tournament bids will be revealed during the NCAA Women’s Selection Show Special on Monday, March 15 at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN. The special will be hosted by Maria Taylor, joined by analysts Rebecca Lobo and Andy Landers, bracketologist Charlie Creme and reporter Holly Rowe. In-depth analysis and reporting will continue on ESPNU at 8 p.m. with NCAA Women’s Selection Special Extended Coverage.

ESPN’s exclusive coverage of the 2021 Women’s Basketball Championship begins Sunday, March 21 with games available across ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and, for the first time, ABC. The entire Women’s Final Four (April 2-4) will air on ESPN live from the Alamodome.

Beginning this year, all 63 games of the tournament will be available nationally, meaning that first and second rounds will no longer be regionalized.
