Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Baylor, Stanford, Connecticut and Notre
Dame earned No. 1 seeds for the women's NCAA basketball tournament, which
begins Saturday at campus sites around the country.
New York, NY (Sports Network) - Baylor was a unanimous No. 1 in the Associated
Press poll for the 15th straight week and became only the eighth women's team
to go wire-to-wire atop the basketball rankings for the whole season.
Bloomington, IN (Sports Network) - Indiana fired head women's basketball coach
Felisha Legette-Jack following a 6-24 season, saying Monday that she was "no

The last of the mid-major conference tournaments wrapped up Sunday and another interesting assortment of mid-major teams have emerged to take their places on the main stage that is the NCAA Tournament. Obviously, the seeds assigned by the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee, the match-ups between each team and its opponents and the sites at which the games will be played are all factors that will play significant roles in how each team fares. But as we await the Monday's announcement of the actual pairings, here are some of the teams to watch out for.
Green Bay, WI (Sports Network) - Julie Wojta scored 29 points and Megan Lukan
added a career-high 20 points as No. 10 Green Bay downed Detroit, 66-53, in
the Horizon League Tournament championship game.
Upper Marlboro, MD (Sports Network) - Elena Delle Donne scored 27 points and
grabbed 10 rebounds, leading Delaware to a 59-43 victory over Drexel in the
championship game of the Colonial Athletic Association.
“What are we going to do about Britney Griner?" When you’re facing Baylor, this is a question you invariably have to tackle.
By the looks of today’s game between Baylor and Texas A&M, Texas A&M had that question locked down, as much as a team can. Griner, who on Friday set a Big 12 tournament single game record with 45 points against Kansas State, scored only 11 points. She had as many fouls and turnovers as rebounds, a mere three.
Upper Marlboro, MD (Sports Network) - Two-time Colonial Athletic Association
player of the year Elena Delle Donne put in another complete performance with
15 points, seven rebounds, three blocks, an assist and a steal, as No. 7
Delaware rolled past UNC-Wilmington 66-39 in a CAA Tournament semifinal.
Kansas City, MO (Sports Network) - Odyssey Sims had a season-high 26 points, Destiny Williams scored 12 with 11 rebounds and top-ranked Baylor cruised to a 73-50 victory over No. 22 Texas A&M in the Big 12 tournament championship game.
