Being a basketball fan during this season is the best thing ever. Teams are cutting down the nets as they win conference tournament championships and move to the Big Dance later this month. The NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament is quickly approaching, and it’s time to prepare for one of the most thrilling tournaments in history.


Now that the bracket is full, some anticipated teams are leading their respective areas. South Carolina is the top overall seed following a perfect 32-0 season. They’ll have some stiff tests if they want to return to the national championship game, as Notre Dame, Oregon State, Indiana, and Oklahoma are all in their region. Iowa and Caitlin Clark are also No. 1 seeds, and they will face Kansas State, a familiar opponent in their regional. Other No. 1 seeds include USC and Texas.


The journey to Cleveland is underway. The NCAA Women’s Tournament Selection Show determined all automatic qualifiers and at-large participants. All that’s left is to watch them play.


South Carolina was named the No. 1 overall seed for the third time in as many seasons as expected. The Gamecocks are six wins away from being the 10th team in NCAA Division I women’s basketball history—and the first since UConn in 2016—to go unbeaten for the full season.

8:25 p.m.: Virginia Tech is the 4-seed in the Portland 1 Regional. It’ll take on ASUN champion 13-seed Marshall, who is appearing in the NCAA Tournament for the second time in program history.
