NCAA women's basketball reveals top 10 seeds for tournament
UConn, South Carolina, Notre Dame and Baylor are the four No. 1 seeds right now according to the NCAA women's basketball selection committee.
Taking a page from the college football playoffs, the NCAA decided this year to release the top 10 women's teams three times in February to help build a buzz for the tournament in March. The first list came out Monday night.
The top four teams mirrored The Associated Press women's basketball poll that was released earlier Monday. Texas was fifth, followed by Ohio State, Arizona State, Oregon State, Maryland and UCLA on the NCAA's list. The Bruins are ranked 14th in the current poll.
Florida State, Louisville, Mississippi State and Texas A&M also were receiving consideration from the committee.
The NCAA will release the top 10 teams twice more on Feb. 15 and Feb. 29. The NCAA Tournament field will be revealed on March 14.
