The Women’s Final Four weekend will tip off in the Short North Arts District with the new Thursday Pick and Roll event!
Fans are invited to pop around High Street to experience Columbus shops and restaurants from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. on Thursday, March 29. Former players and the participating bands and spirit squads will be at select locations meeting fans throughout the day. Tourney Town presented by Capital One located inside the Greater Columbus Convention Center on High Street will also be a stop filled with hours of fun activities for fans of all ages. The more places fans visit during the Thursday Pick and Roll, the more chances they have to win Women’s Final Four prizes.
