Quandt Fieldhouse on the campus of UW-Stevens Point has been named host of the 2014 Division III women's basketball Final Four.

Unlike previous releases, this championship hosting announcement covered just one year, leaving open the possibility that a future Division III women's basketball championship might get the same treatment the Division III men's basketball championship will get this spring -- a joint host city with the Division I Final Four.

Quandt Fieldhouse is the facility the school uses for men's basketball. It has a listed seating capacity of 2,787. The Pointers women's basketball team chooses to play in Berg Gymnasium, a facility that seats approximately 1,200 people at the other end of the building.

The 2013 Division III women's basketball championship will be held at Hope College in Holland, Mich., for the second consecutive year.

Quandt Fieldhouse hosted Division III women's basketball sectional play in 1987 and 2004. The playing surface was renamed Bennett Court in 2009 to honor former men's basketball coaches Dick Bennett and Jack Bennett.
