Will there ever be a true Cinderella??

One of these coaches will likely make the Final Four...okay, it's Kim Mulkey

No surprises at the top as the top overall seed is #1, and undefeated, UConn, followed by the next three in the rankings as Baylor, Notre Dame, and South Carolina round out the other three 1-seeds. Tennessee also continues their streak of being selected for every NCAA women's tournament ever, quite a run for the Lady Volunteers.

Your Kansas State Wildcats are a 9-seed in the Sioux Falls Region, playing George Washington in Columbia, SC with the winner to face South Carolina (well, technically the winner of SC/Jacksonville, but c'mon...). Joining K-State and Baylor from the Big 12 in the Big Dance are 2-seed Texas, 6-seed West Virginia (also in the Sioux Falls Region), 6-seed Oklahoma, and 7-seed Oklahoma St.

For those that don't follow the women's tournament too closely, the NCAA went back to having the top four seeds in each regional host the first and second round games. However, Michigan St. was unable to host due to an event conflict, so Mississippi St. will get to host in their place as the 5-seed.
