Duke loves to host the First and Second Rounds of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament, and the Division I Women's Basketball Committee is returning the love for the second straight year.

Duke, which will host the first two rounds at Cameron Indoor Stadium this season, will also host the first two rounds in 20011, the NCAA has announced.

The games will be held either March 19-21 or March 20-22, 2011.

"We are thrilled to once again host the NCAA Tournament in the most amazing collegiate basketball venue in the world," Duke coach Joanne P. McCallie (pictured) said. "Cameron Indoor Stadium is special and the program history is filled with pride, tradition and excellence. We are honored by the opportunity to be an NCAA host site for the second straight year."

ACC rivals Maryland and Virginia were also selected as the early-round sites for the 2011 tournament, which will move on to regionals in Dayton, Ohio; Philadelphia; Dallas; and Spokane, Washington with the Final Four in Indianapolis.

Duke, which will host for the 11th time in school history and the second consecutive year in 2011, will host this season's First and Second Rounds on March 20-22.

Duke has won 12 straight NCAA Tournament games at Cameron.
