The 2018–19 NCAA Division I women's basketball season began in November 2018 and will end with the Final Four title game at Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida on April 2019. Practices officially began in September 2018.

Season headlines[edit]

Milestones and records[edit]

  • November 13 – Rutgers head coach C. Vivian Stringer became the sixth college women's coach with 1,000 career wins following the Scarlet Knights' 73–44 pasting of Central Connecticut. She also became the first African-American college coach to reach the milestone.[6]
  • November 18 – Sabrina Ionescu recorded her 12th career triple-double in Oregon's 102–82 win over Buffalo.[7] Already the holder of the all-divisions NCAA women's record for career triple-doubles, Ionescu equaled the NCAA record for all players regardless of sex, previously held by former BYU men's player Kyle Collinsworth.[8]

Conference membership changes[edit]

Six schools joined new conferences for the 2018–19 season. Four schools switched between Division I conferences for the 2018–19 season. In addition, two schools moved from Division II starting this season. The former Division II schools are ineligible for NCAA-sponsored postseason play until completing their D-I transitions in 2022.

School Former Conference New Conference
Cal Baptist PacWest (D-II) WAC[9]
Hampton MEAC Big South[10]
Liberty Big South ASUN[11]
North Alabama Gulf South (D-II) ASUN[12]
North Dakota Big Sky Summit League[13]
USC Upstate ASUN Big South[14]

In addition to the schools changing conferences, the 2018–19 season will be the last for Savannah State in D-I with its decision to reclassify all of its sports to D-II.[15]

Finally, one D-I member adopted a new institutional and athletic identity. The 2017–18 school year was the last for Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) as a single institution. Following the school's split into separate institutions governed by Indiana University and Purdue University, IPFW degree programs in health sciences are now overseen by Indiana University Fort Wayne, while all other degree programs are governed by Purdue University Fort Wayne (PFW).[16] As noted in the "Season headlines" section, the IPFW athletic program, rebranded in 2016 as the Fort Wayne Mastodons, became the Purdue Fort Wayne Mastodons, representing only PFW.

Arenas[edit]

New arenas[edit]

Arenas reopening[edit]

Four teams are returning to newly renovated arenas, all of which were closed for the 2017–18 season.

Arenas closing[edit]

Temporary arenas[edit]

With the reopening of Fertitta Center delayed, Houston will begin the 2018–19 season at Texas Southern's Health and Physical Education Arena, where the Cougars played most of their 2017–18 home games.

Robert Morris planned to open the new UPMC Events Center on the site of its former on-campus Sewall Center in January 2019, but the opening has now been delayed to that summer. Until the new arena opens, the Colonials will continue to use the Student Recreation and Fitness Center, a building in the school's North Athletic Complex that opened in September 2017 as part of the UPMC Events Center project.

Upsets[edit]

An upset is a victory by an underdog team. In the context of NCAA Division I Women's Basketball, this generally constitutes an unranked team defeating a team currently ranked in the Top 25. This list will highlight those upsets of ranked teams by unranked teams as well as upsets of #1 teams. Rankings are from the AP poll. Bold type indicates winning teams in "true road games"—i.e., those played on an opponent's home court (including secondary homes, such as Intrust Bank Arena for Wichita State).

Conference winners and tournament winners[edit]

Each of the 32 Division I athletic conferences ends its regular season with a single-elimination tournament. The team with the best regular-season record in each conference is given the number one seed in each tournament, with tiebreakers used as needed in the case of ties for the top seeding. The winners of these tournaments receive automatic invitations to the 2019 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Tournament.
