Category:NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament[edit]

The title should be Category:NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament, as this is the proper hierarchy for NCAA sports. There is no such thing as "Men's Division I" in the NCAA; there is Division I, which includes a competition class called "men's basketball". You can see this hierarchy on NCAA's website, where "Division I" appears in small text above the page title "Men's Basketball". Other sources also tend to use this word order as well; compare Google ncaa division i men's basketball tournament to Google ncaa men's division i basketball tournament. Reliable national-level sources tend to use "Division I Men's Basketball", whereas "Men's Division I Basketball" tends to only be used by fan pages or occasionally small local news outlets. I'd also like to propose all of these related moves:

The 1968/69/71 moves might need further explanation: In 1973 and earlier, "Division I" was known as "University Division". Additionally, the word "Men's" was not typically used in the name prior to the first women's tournament in 1982. These names match the article titles on English Wikipedia (see en:Category:NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament). –IagoQnsi (talk) 19:37, 7 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Ok, find a suitable name and then we'll move to the new name. -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 19:56, 7 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Blackcat: Oops, I listed all the subcategory moves, but forgot to list the main category move. I'm proposing Category:NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament be moved to Category:NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament. I've added the red link to my post above now. –IagoQnsi (talk) 20:37, 7 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Wikipedia would seem to agree with this. SecretName101 (talk) 00:10, 8 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@SecretName101: not necessarily we need approval or sanction by Wikipedia, our naming scheme is different from them, and only occasionally some names can coincide. For example, whereas they write "American basketball players" we write "Basketball players from the United States"...  :-) -- SERGIO (aka the Blackcat) 08:20, 19 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Blackcat: We definitely have to make a decision one way or the other, as there are already a number of categories using the proposed naming scheme (see Category:NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament by year). –IagoQnsi (talk) 01:06, 20 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

✓ Done: renamed as nominated. --ƏXPLICIT 06:09, 30 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
