The Women’s NCAA bracket is out following the Selection Monday show on ESPN. Gonzaga is staying home in Spokane for the opening round, set to face Iowa on Saturday. The winner of that matchup will face UCLA or Montana in the second round, also set to take place in Spokane. All told, the lady Zags received a favorable draw, especially in the location of it all.
The full Women’s NCAA bracket can be found over at SB Nation. As expected, UConn, Tennessee, Baylor and Stanford received No. 1 seeds, with the Cardinal snagging the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament.
The biggest surprise, as noted by Nate Parham, came from the Dallas region. Baylor and Texas A&M were placed in the same region, taking the first and second seeds, respectively. The Big 12 mates are on a collision course in the Elite Eight, should the seeding hold true to form.
