Defending champions South Carolina are the 1-seed in the first section of the bracket as they chart a path to the Elite Eight and on to the Final Four in Dallas.
The Gamecocks come into the NCAAB Championship having completed a perfect 32-0 season, which saw them lift the SEC Tournament Championship earlier this month.
Having seen off 2-seed Maryland 81-56 earlier this term, the defending champions should be confident of maintaining that perfect record through the regional round and making it to Texas.
#1 South Carolina vs. #16 Norfolk State
#2 Maryland vs. #15 Holy Cross
#3 Notre Dame vs. #14 Southern Utah
#4 UCLA vs. #13 Sacramento State
#5 Oklahoma vs. #12 Portland
#6 Creighton vs. Illinois/Mississippi State
#7 Arizona vs. #10 West Virginia
#8 South Florida vs. #9 Marquette
Indiana fell in the Sweet Sixteen last year but the Hoosiers return this year as the 1-seed in the second Greenville regional. After a 27-3 campaign, they should be confident of a first ever run to the Final Four of this competition.
While Indiana lost only two times in their own conference this season, one of those defeats did come in the semi-finals of the Big Ten tournament, meaning they come into the NCAAB Championship on the back of two losses in three.
#1 Indiana vs. #16 Tennessee Tech/Monmouth
#2 Utah vs. #15 Gardner-Webb
#3 LSU vs. #14 Hawai’i
#4 Villanova vs. #13 Cleveland State
#5 Washington State vs. #12 Florida Gulf Coast
#6 Michigan vs #11 UNLV
#7 NC State vs. #10 Princeton
#8 Oklahoma State vs. #9 Miami (FL)
Virginia Tech are the top seed in the first Seattle regional, having won 11 straight games to end the season by taking the ACC Women’s Tournament championship.
However, there’s tough opposition for the Hokies as the 2-seed is record 11-time champions UConn. The Huskies are searching for a first championship since 2016 and they finished the season with a 18-2 record in the Big East tournament, claiming the championship to enter the first round in good shape.
#1 Virginia Tech vs. #16 Chattanooga
#2 UConn vs. #15 Vermont
#3 Ohio State vs. #14 James Madison
#4 Tennessee vs. #13 Saint Louis
#5 Iowa State vs. #12 Toledo
#6 North Carolina vs. #11 Purdue/St. John’s
#7 Baylor vs. #10 Alabama
#8 USC vs. #9 South Dakota State
Stanford hope to claim a third championship as the 1-seed in the final section of the bracket. The 2021 champion will battle it out with the Iowa Hawkeyes, who took advantage of Indiana’s early exit to claim the Big Ten crown.
Stanford fell short in the Pac-12 Tournament with a semi-final exit and face a tricky field with Duke and the Texas Longhorns coming into the tournament with strong records this season.
#1 Stanford vs. #16 Southern/Sacred Heart
#2 Iowa vs. #15 Southeastern Louisiana
#3 Duke vs. #14 Iowa
#4 Texas vs. #13 East Carolina
#5 Louisville vs. #12 Drake
#6 Colorado vs. Middle Tennessee
#7 Florida State vs. #10 Georgia
#8 Ole Mis vs. #9 Gonzaga
