March 22nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

With the pairings set ticket sales have picked up for the NCAA womens basketball regional which begins in Des Moines on Saturday. Nationally top ranked Baylor plays Georgia Tech and Tennessee will play Kansas in Wells Fargo Arena. Chris Connolly, general manager of the Iowa Events Center says sales have been strong despite not having a local team in the field. Top ranked Baylor enters the “sweet 16” with a record of 36-0. Connolly says the city of Des Moines has developed a strong relationship with the NCAA and that should help attract future events. Saturday’s winners meet Monday night for the right to advance to the Final Four.
