VICTORIA — An NCAA basketball tournament will return to B.C., for a second year.

Eight women's teams will compete Nov. 28-30 at the University of Victoria. Last year's event featured women's and men's teams.

Mississippi State, national runner-up in 2017 and 2018, and recent Final Four teams Stanford and Syracuse headline the field.

Bowling Green, Cal Baptist, Green Bay, Houston and San Francisco round out the entrants.

It will be the second NCAA basketball neutral-site event in November in Canada.
