Defending Champ Baylor Women No. 1 Seed Again 3/19/13
WACO, Texas - Top-ranked and defending national champion Baylor is
again the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament.
Brittney Griner and the Lady Bears (32-1) open Sunday at home against
Southwestern Athletic Conference tournament champion Prairie View (17-14). It's
the same opening matchup Baylor had two years ago, when it hosted and was a No.
1 seed for the first time.
If the Lady Bears keep advancing, and other top seeds hold as well, the rest
of the tournament could have a very familiar feel.
Also in Baylor's bracket is No. 2 seed Tennessee from the SEC. The Lady
Bears beat the Lady Vols in a regional final last year.
The rest of the No. 1 seeds are the same as last year, including Stanford,
the only team to beat Baylor this season.
