Women's Final Four Officials

Anyone know who they are?

Although, typically you can guess 4 or 5 of them and be right in any given year.

haven't seen it listed yet. This may be a silly question, but is there ever any "cross over" of officials that have been in both sets of ncaa finals in their careers?

Lisa Mattingly is working Wash/Syr game. Big surprise. Every women's game I see on TV either has Mattingly or Kantner. Brooks a lot too.

Kyle Bacon from PHX, working the Washington/Syracuse game. I believe the first for him. The last official I knew worked men's and women's tournament games was Bob Scofield. I don't know of any that worked finals.

UConn/Oregon State:

Brenda Pantoja
Felicia Grinter
Joe Vaszily


Washington/Syracuse:

Lisa Mattingly
Denise Brooks
Kyle Bacon


Almost surely means Dee Kantner will work the final, and I wouldn't be surprised if Tina Napier is, too.

Thumbs up Well-deserved

Great to see Kyle Bacon recognized. All-around good dude. How you like them apples, Mulkey?

Wasn't Brenda Pantoja working the NBA? Is she still working games there?

She was. It doesn't appear as though she has worked any NBA games since the '13-14 season.

As to the championship, I'm thinking Bryan Burnette will be on the court. He was the ALT last year and on the women's side that tends to mean you get the Chip the next season.

It may/may not be that way but you'd never hear me complain about it, even if I was at that level. As one of my supervisors said a few seasons ago, "We're in their game."

Oddly enough, none of my NCAAW supervisors is female. If I get picked up by one or more of the conferences I'm going for this summer that will change but the only female supervisor I work for is in NYC GV. I worked about 40 3-person games NCAAW & HS combined this past season. I had a female partner in 13 of those games (two unlucky women worked with me twice ). I had only one game where I was partnered with two women.

Not to segway on this thread, but I'm sure this has been discussed here before, and I'm wondering why any of you think we will get over the "gender" card in the striped world and there will come a day when a woman will be able to work mens' ball on a regular basis and have an opportunity to maybe someday work the tournament, and maybe even a Final Four?

An annual thread at this exact time of year, at least for as long as I've been a member.

Actually it's mainly D2 conferences but I wouldn't turn away A-10/Patriot . At any rate there are four D2s in my neck of the woods that have schools I can reach. D2 is the first level where I see female officiating supervisors.
