           === NCAA switches women's regional site to Bridgeport ===
 
 Indianapolis,  IN (Sports  Network) - The NCAA announced Friday it has moved a
 women's basketball regional site from Trenton, N.J. to Bridgeport, Conn.
 
 On  Oct. 15, the NCAA relocated six 2013 championships from New Jersey because
 of  a  new state  law  there  allowing  sports  wagering on  professional  and
 collegiate games.
 
 The  games March  30 and April 1 at  Webster Bank Arena at Harbor Yard will be
 co-hosted  by the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference and Fairfield. The winner
 of  the regional will advance to the 2013 Women's Final Four in New Orleans on
 April 7 and 9.
 
 "Bridgeport has proven to be a great host for our championship in the past and
 we  are excited to be making a return this March," Carolayne Henry said, chair
 of   the  Division   I  Women's  Basketball  Committee  and  senior  associate
 commissioner  of  the Mountain West  Conference. "We appreciate both the Metro
 Atlantic Athletic Conference and Fairfield University stepping forward to host
 because  of  this special circumstance  and know our student-athletes and fans
 will enjoy a first-class experience."
