Behind The Scenes

Behind the scenes of ESPN’s
NCAA women’s hoops coverage

KINGSTON, R.I. — So much goes into the production of all 63 games of the 2012 Women’s Basketball Championship Presented by Capital One.

Front Row gives you an inside look into the ESPN production behind the Kingston Regional from March 25 and 27, where No. 1 seed Connecticut, No. 2 Kentucky, No. 4 Penn State and No. 11 Gonzaga contended for a Final Four berth.

ESPN’s own Dave O’Brien, Doris Burke and Holly Rowe had the call of the games and spent much time preparing for the telecasts — between player interviews, production meetings, time at practice evaluating the teams, all leading up to the Regional Semifinals.

ESPN’s exclusive coverage of the NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship Presented by Capital One has reached its peak as all four No. 1 seeds will meet at the Final Four in Denver Sunday, April 1 and Tuesday, April 3.

ESPN and ESPN3 will full studio and game coverage throughout the weekend, starting with the National Semifinals: Connecticut versus Notre Dame at 6:30 p.m. ET, followed by Stanford versus Baylor at 8:30 p.m. The championship game will air Tuesday, April 3, at 8:30 p.m.
