West Virginia, Penn State Women's Basketball Teams Head To NCAA Tournament

The West Virginia and Penn State women's basketball teams have both made the NCAA women's tournament.

↵

After beginning their season with 16 straight wins, the WVU women fell apart down the stretch, losing eight of their last 12, and now they have a No. 9 seed. That's respectable, certainly, but if they win their first game against No. 8 seed Houston (at 5:10 PM Sunday in Waco), they'll likely have to face No. 1 seed Baylor, one of the best teams in the country. And that game will also be in Waco, where Baylor is based.

Penn State has a No. 6 seed and will get a home game against No. 11 Dayton at 11:10 AM on Saturday. If Penn State can win that one, it will face either No. 3 DePaul or No. 14 Navy. Penn State went 24-9 overall, performing well down the stretch with an 11-5 Big Ten record with a win over Ohio State and two wins over Iowa.
