Oklahoma women's basketball: Sooners receive No. 12 seed in NCAA Tournament

13 March 2018, 07:37 | Shelley Chandler



While a matchup against No. 12 seed Davidson on Thursday is not too daunting, the Wildcats are looking at potential match-ups against No. 4 seed Arizona in the Round of 32 and a Sweet 16 contest against top overall seed Virginia.

Don't forget before the NCAA Tournament begins, you can also play Bracket Games through CBS Sports by creating a pool with your office, family or friends, or filling out your bracket online.

ESPN's Dick Vitale says he doesn't understand the decision.

The Rams are finishing their seventh straight week in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll and have boasted an RPI ranking in the top 20 since their strong nonconference performance. Villanova, Kansas and Xavier joined Virginia as No. 1 seeds, but they, along with the other 64 contenders, will play against the backdrop of an investigation-riddled season in which bribes and payoffs made bigger headlines than 3s and layups. The SEC sent eight teams and the Big 12 sent seven.

"I understood how their minds and hearts may be hurt, how they probably are disappointed".

"Let's note Oklahoma State being left out despite having one less loss and much better wins than Alabama ... which is a No. 9 seed". They were booted from their conference tournament in their first game by Oklahoma State.

"I see no logic".

"I'm just really excited and really thankful and really happy to be in the tournament", junior forward Kianna Ibis said. "To tell you the truth, it frustrates the hell out of me", Vitale said.

"It's nearly unjustifiable", said ESPN's Jay Bilas. USC finished second in the Pac-12 and was runner-up in their conference tournament and gets snubbed. "The committee had them 16th in their [February] reveal, which is insane town".

Dubbed "Guard U" when it was on fire to start of the season, Arizona State is led by senior Tra Holder, who dropped 40 points on the Musketeers and scored another 29 in the win against the Jayhawks just two weeks later. But at the end of the day, the selection committee decided they wanted Young, one of the nation's most talented and entertaining players, in the Big Dance.
