Moni's 2011 Women's NCAA B-Ball Bracket
The usual basketball royalty grabbed the Number 1 seeds in the women's NCAA tourney. UConn, Stanford, Tennessee and Baylor with the Huskies getting the Number one overall tournament.
That 90 game UConn winning streak didn't include any wins over Tennessee, but the Huskies may have to go through the Lady Vols to get to their eighth NCAA title. I'm also happy to see my Lady Cougars get their first invite to the tournament since the Chandi Jones era in 2005, but we're in the Dallas Regional and looking at a potential second round matchup with Houston homegirl Brittney Griner and her Baylor.Lady Bears.
Speaking of the Lady Bears, they are also facing a potential fourth battle with bitter rival Texas A&M with a trip to Indianapolis on the line. The same is true for Stanford, who has beaten UCLA three times in the Pac-10 this year as well.
It's going to be an interesting road to the Final Four in Indianapolis.
