2014–15 NCAA Division I women's basketball season

The 2014–15 NCAA Division I women's basketball season began in November and ended with the Final Four in Tampa, Florida, April 5–7. Practices officially began on October 3.

This was the final season in which NCAA women's basketball games were played in 20-minute halves. Beginning with the 2015–16 season, the women's game switched to 10-minute quarters, the standard for FIBA and WNBA play.[1]

Season headlinesEdit

  • May 14 – The NCAA announces its Academic Progress Rate (APR) sanctions for the 2014–15 school year. A total of 36 programs in 11 sports are declared ineligible for postseason play due to failure to meet the required APR benchmark. While no women's basketball teams will be forbidden from postseason play due to APR sanctions, three Division I women's basketball teams are facing level 1 or 2 sanctions:[2]
  • Southern is declared ineligible for postseason play in all sports for failing to supply usable academic data to the NCAA.

Milestones and recordsEdit

  • February 3 – Connecticut's Geno Auriemma earns his 900th career win in the Huskies' 96–36 blowout of Cincinnati. Auriemma, coaching in his 1,034th game, breaks the previous record that was held by Pat Summitt for the fewest games to reach 900 wins.[3] He also becomes the first man ever to reach the 900-win mark in NCAA women's basketball; the previous six coaches to do so are all women.[4]

Conference membership changesEdit

The 2014–15 season saw the final wave of membership changes resulting from a major realignment of NCAA Division I conferences. The cycle began in 2010 with the Big Ten and the then-Pac-10 publicly announcing their intentions to expand. The fallout from these conferences' moves later affected a majority of D-I conferences.

Conference winners and tournamentsEdit

Thirty-one athletic conferences each end their regular seasons with a single-elimination tournament. The teams in each conference that win their regular season title are given the number one seed in each tournament. The winners of these tournaments receive automatic invitations to the 2015 NCAA Women's Division I Basketball Tournament. The Ivy League does not have a conference tournament, instead giving their automatic invitation to their regular season champion.

All-America teamsEdit

The NCAA has never recognized a consensus All-America team in women's basketball. This differs from the practice in men's basketball, in which the NCAA uses a combination of selections by the Associated Press (AP), the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), the Sporting News, and the United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) to determine a consensus All-America team. The selection of a consensus team is possible because all four organizations select at least a first and second team, with only the USBWA not selecting a third team.

However, of the major selectors in women's basketball, only the AP divides its selections into separate teams. The women's counterpart to the NABC, the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA), selects a single 10-member (plus ties) team, as does the USBWA. The NCAA does not recognize Sporting News as an All-America selector in women's basketball.

With that in mind, the following players were named to at least two of the three major teams:

"Consensus" All-Americans
Player Position Class School AP[44] USBWA[45] WBCA[46]
Brittany Boyd G Senior California 2nd Yes
Nina Davis F Sophomore Baylor 1st Yes Yes

Coaching changesEdit

A number of teams changed coaches during and after the season.

Team Former
coach
Interim
coach
New
coach
Reason
Air Force Andrea Williams Chris Gobrecht Williams was fired after five seasons and a 22–128 overall record, including a 2–28 record this season.[53] Yale's Gobrecht was hired as the next head coach.
Detroit Autumn Rademacher Bernard Scott Rademacher was fired after four seasons and a 101–120 overall record. She led the Titans to the 2013 WBI title and a WNIT berth in 2012, but never made the NCAA Tournament and went 12–18 this season.[54]
FIU Cindy Russo Inge Nissen Marlin Chinn Russo announced her resignation during her 36th season at FIU on January 22, effective immediately. In her announcement, she alluded to burnout from balancing coaching with caring for her ailing mother, who died earlier this season. Russo finished with a 667–371 record at FIU and 707–391 overall.[55] FIU hired Maryland assistant Chinn after the season.[56]
Georgia Andy Landers Joni Taylor On March 16, Women's Basketball Hall of Fame member Landers announced his retirement. Hired in 1979 as the program's first full-time coach, he led the Lady Bulldogs to 31 NCAA Tournament appearances, five Final Fours, seven SEC regular-season titles, and four SEC Tournament crowns.[57] Georgia stayed in-house for its new coach, promoting top assistant Joni Taylor on April 12.[58]
Kansas Bonnie Henrickson Brandon Schneider Henrickson was fired after 11 seasons. Although the Jayhawks made two NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearances, those were the team's only NCAA tournament appearances under Henrickson, and the team never finished higher than sixth in the Big 12.[59]
Lafayette Dianne Nolan Theresa Grentz On March 26, Nolan announced her retirement after five seasons at Lafayette and 38 seasons overall.
