OK, folks you have a few years to get shined up and lean on your Columbus friends for tickets. Per The Columbus Dispatch:
City of Columbus, Ohio State University and Nationwide Arena officials gathered tonight in the Buckeye Hall of Fame Grill to celebrate the city’s selection to host the NCAA women’s basketball Final Four in 2018.
The NCAA made the announcement on ESPN at halftime of the Kentucky-Baylor women’s game in Lexington, Ky., and drew an ovation in the Grandview restaurant.
This is a really big deal from a prestige and financial perspective for the Columbus community.

Congratulations to all involved who brought this tournament to Columbus. Well done.
