The NCAA has actually revealed the 2nd expose of the predicted leading 16 seeds in the Department I ladies’s basketball competition, plus the truth that the regionals– all kept in San Antonio– will be called after well-known websites in the city: the Alamo, the Hemisfair, the Mercado and the River Stroll.
The seed forecasts are through Saturday’s video games and do not take into consideration video games on Sunday. The choice program is Monday, March 15 at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
UConn is the general front runner, followed by No. 2 Stanford, No. 3 Texas A&M and No. 4 South Carolina. Those are the No. 1 local seeds. In the very first expose on Feb. 15, the leading 4 were UConn, South Carolina, Stanford and Louisville. The Cardinals have actually fallen from the No. 4 seed general to No. 9.
Just one group fell out of the leading 16 from the very first expose: West Virginia, which was changed by Arkansas. That offers the SEC 6 groups in the leading 16– Texas A&M, South Carolina, No. 11 Georgia, No. 13 Tennessee, No. 14 Kentucky and No. 16 Arkansas– for the many of any conference.
On The Other Hand, the Pac-12 has 4 groups: Stanford, No. 7 Arizona, No. 10 UCLA and No. 15 Oregon.
The NCAA competition will be held totally in the San Antonio location, with some first-round video games in neighboring San Marcos and Austin. All video games from the Sugary food 16 on will be at the Alamodome, with the Women’s Last 4 there on April 2 and 4.
Due To The Fact That it’s a single-site occasion, there will be a real S-curve for the bracket, rather of location affecting where groups are put.
In the nationwide semifinals, the Alamo local winner will deal with the Hemisfair winner, and the Mercado winner will fulfill the River Stroll winner.
Alamo area: 1. UConn, 2. Arizona, 3. Georgia, 4. Arkansas
Arizona remains in this local rather of the River Stroll– which is where the Wildcats fall on the S curve– to keep Pac-12 opponents Stanford and Arizona from being 1-2 in the very same area. Baylor goes to the River Stroll rather.
River Stroll area: 1. Stanford, 2. Baylor, 3. Louisville, 4. Tennessee
Baylor went up 2 areas from the last expose, from No. 10 general to No. 8.
Mercado area: 1. Texas A&M, 2. Maryland, 3. UCLA, 4. Kentucky
The Aggies moved from No. 5 general in the last expose to No. 3 general.
Hemisfair area: 1. South Carolina, 2. NC State, 3. Indiana, 4. Oregon
The Wolfpack went from No. 6 last time to No. 5, and according to Bracketologist Charlie Creme, NC State is still in the mix for a No. 1 general seed.
