OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — College softball coaches are questioning the format and scheduling of the Women’s College World Series. Oklahoma coach Patty Gasso notes that the women’s event is crammed into about a week while the men can play their series over nearly two weeks.

The issue of equality at NCAA championship events has been a topic all spring. It was raised during the March Madness basketball tournaments and again during the women’s volleyball tournament in April.
