NCAA & WNIT Tournaments

Only four B1G teams made the big dance, Maryland a 3 seed, Ohio state as a 5 seed, Purdue and Michigan State both enter into the tourney as 9 seeds. Sort of surprised that Michigan didn't make the cut. Other than the B1G teams that the Huskers played that made it, the other teams the Huskers played followed by their seeding that made it in were, UConn (1), California (9), Creighton (7), Drake (10) and Missouri (6).

 

The Bracket

 

My final 4 picks - UConn (1), Washington (3), Stanford (2), South Carolina (1). 

 

How do you see it playing out?

For those interested in the Post Season WNIT Tourney Michigan received the automatic bid from the B1G. Other B1G teams to make this tournament were Indiana, Iowa and Penn State. Other teams the Huskers played this past year that made this tourney were Colorado State, Virginia Tech and Virginia

i am really surprised. finish 3rd in the big ten; 23rd sagarin/cbn rpi; 46th ncaa rpi; rpi better than some teams that got in.

guess the 1-4 finish really hurt. 0-4 top 25 and 4-7 against top 50

 

still, i thought they would make it.

Texas might be a dark horse pick.  Joyner Holmes could be a monster player before she leaves Austin.  The Longhorn bugaboo is Turnovers.  I have Florida St going a long way.  Baylor needs Alexis Jones healthy.

Watched the Washington games the past two rounds where they've dismantled both Montana St. and last night Oklahoma. Kelsey Plum is a stud. She had 29 against MSU and threw in a measly 38 last night against OU. They pass the ball better than any team I've seen the past couple of season's, defense is suspect though. Of course I'll admit I watch U-Dub because of Natalie, she had 11 pts the first round and 20 last night hitting on 6 of 10 three pointers.

Along with those 38 points, she had 11 assists.  How often do we see something like that?  They crushed OU 108-82.  Guess they didn't need much defense last night when they put 108 on the board.

Probably should not overlook Stanford.  But after watching UConn last night it's apparently a race for runner up.  That team is a bunch of athletes who are fundamentally sound and move the ball without the dribble better than men's teams.

Also watched a few minutes of the Wash. game. Romeo didn't score a point while I was watching....watched some of the UConn game ...they're just such a force...scoring by every player, passing and assists, ....the unselfish "team" play is just something to watch. UConn has really jelled this year with several new players. More so than I thought they could going into the season.

 

As said...who will be the runner up?
