NCAA Tournament Guide: A look at women’s field
Question of the Day
Two undefeated teams, talented players and record-setting performances.
Get ready for March Madness in the women’s tournament.
History could be made in Nashville on April 8 with unbeaten Notre Dame and Connecticut potentially squaring off for a national championship.
UConn. No. 1 overall seed, 34-0, defending national champions. Nuff said.
Notre Dame. Oh, by the way, they also entered the tournament undefeated at 32-0. With all the hype surrounding Connecticut you almost wouldn’t know it.
Tennessee. The Lady Vols are trying to end a Final Four drought - by their standards. Would be something for them to end that five-year skid and make it to Nashville. Stanford was the last team to win a national championship in its home state and that was back in 1992.
Louisville. The Cardinals shocked the basketball world by upsetting Baylor in the regional semifinals last season en route to an appearance in the national championship game. Now to get back to the Final Four, Louisville would just need to win two home games if the Cardinals can make it to the Sweet 16.
South Carolina. Dawn Staley has led the Gamecocks to their first No. 1 seed in school history. They’ll be out west for the first four rounds of the tournament playing in Seattle and Stanford if they can last that long.
Breanna Stewart, Connecticut. The sensational sophomore is the hardest player in the country to guard. Her wingspan is nearly 7-feet making her a factor on both ends of the court.
Samantha Logic, Iowa. The Hawkeyes’ stellar point guard is a triple-double waiting to happen. She had three on the season and will have the benefit of a home crowd in the first two rounds.
Chiney Ogwumike, Stanford. She’s put up video game-like numbers this season, averaging 26.8 points and 12.3 rebounds while shooting 61 percent from the field.
