NEW YORK (AP) – UConn, Mississippi State, Baylor and Notre Dame would be the top seeds if the NCAA Tournament began Monday.
For the third and final time this season, the NCAA women’s basketball committee revealed the projected top 16 seeds for the NCAAs, giving a snapshot of who would host the opening two rounds of the tournament.
South Carolina, which was a one-seed in the first two reveals, fell to fifth. Texas, Maryland and Oregon State were the other two seeds. The Longhorns made the biggest move, climbing five places since the previous reveal on Feb. 6.
Florida State, Stanford, Duke and Washington would be the three seeds. The Cardinal can’t host because of a previous commitment at their home arena.
UCLA, Louisville, Kentucky and Oklahoma would be the four seeds.
Selection Monday is on March 13 and the NCAA Tournament begins that weekend.
