Women's NCAA Tournament field set

Women's NCAA Tournament field set

The national championship game is April 1.

UConn, Notre Dame, Louisville and Mississippi State are the No. 1 seeds in the NCAA Women's Tournament. 'Notre Dame did have the top strength of schedule in the country and they did have the best strength of schedule in the country and they had nine more top-50 wins than Baylor and those were the reason that the committee put Notre Dame on that one line and Baylor on that two line'.

The other potential Sweet 16 pairing would see the Tennessee duo of Jaime Nared (17.1 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 2.3 spg) and Mercedes Russell (15.3 ppg, 9.1 rpg) taking on a young Baylor squad that will be without senior point guard Kristy Wallace, who suffered a torn ACL in her right knee less than two weeks ago. The Gamecocks are the two-seed. That streak was snapped when they were defeated by SC, but that doesn't make what Mississippi State's women have done this year any less remarkable-and the seed reflects that. "We were a two seed in 2005 and we played and won the national championship".

The Irish are in the Spokane Regional and open up against Cal State Northridge on Friday.

"We wouldn't be in that kind of position if we didn't have a great year and we hope to keep that going", OR coach Kelly Graves said. "For our Duck fans it's close enough where they can justify a trip there". That seeding doesn't come as much of a surprise-at 32-2, Louisville, the No. 1 seed in the Bears' regional, deserves the credit and respect it was given-but Baylor looks like a plenty strong candidate to come out of the Lexington regional, and its road to the Elite Eight actually looks a bit easier than Louisville's. The SEC has seven teams in the tournament, and the Pac-12 has six.

Buffalo (27-5) is an 11-seed after losing to Central Michigan in the MAC championship.

"A great reward for this team for what they've been through. playing the toughest schedule and getting a No. 1 seed", McGraw said. A win then would pit them against the victor of No. 8-seed South Dakota State versus No. 9-seed Villanova. "Good luck with that".

"I am watching that game", Auriemma said.

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid Confirm Their Break-Up With Heartfelt Statements
The couple did not disclose why they broke up, but we're glad that they were able to do it with so much respect for each other. Zayn made headlines earlier this year for his latest tattoo, a pair of eyes many fans speculated were Gigi's .

Everyone who follows women's basketball turned their eyes to the Albany region once the bracket was released.

Rutgers, which finished 20-12, was left off despite having beaten Minnesota head-to-head.

Where a school is located played a role in where they were sent for their first games and that may have hurt some in the tournament.

No. 1 UConn def.

"Brackets are brackets. There are good teams in every bracket", UConn coach Geno Auriemma said. "We seed the teams and then we place them in the bracket using that "S" curve and geography is one of the things that we consider and one of our principals". "We're going to give it our best shot and let the chips fall where they may".

Wilson and the Gamecocks face a hard path in front of them as they attempt to defend last year's NCAA title. With most of their players back from last season's runner-up finish - including Morgan Williams, who hit the game-winner in overtime to knock off UConn - the Bulldogs hope to make another deep NCAA run.

The Bobcats are now on a 22-game winning streak.
