Women’s basketball “Super Six Series” includes six conferences
Six conferences joined forces to create the Super Six Series womenâ€™s basketball challenge set to begin this season. Conferences in the series include the Atlantic Coast, Big East, Big 12, Big Ten, Southeastern and Pacific-10.
Two teams from each conference will participate, resulting in six games played in on-campus venues. Each conference will have one home game and one away game annually. Games will be played during the beginning of the season each year.
The opening matchup of the Super Six Series on November 17 will be broadcast nationally on www.bigtennetwork.com. It features Pittsburgh at Minnesota.
â€œThe initiation of the Super Six Series is an outstanding opportunity for our coaches and student-athletes to compete against some of the best competition in the country,â€ said Big Ten Associate Commissioner Andrea Williams in a statement. â€œWith compelling matchups and top players, we anticipate this series will provide the participating teams with a unique and competitive preseason experience.â€
