There are 87 NCAA Division I women’s college basketball programs with at least one representative on hand at the North Tartan Meltdown this week, along with many more DII and DIII coaches. When the host club’s top 9th grade team takes to the court, pretty much every last eyeball is glued to the proceedings, and why not.
