The NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship Sport Committee announced the second of three February top-10 rankings in seed order today. This is the second of three times the potential seeding will be announced during Big Monday games (also  Feb. 29). The announcements will have no bearing on the final bracket that will be revealed on Selection Monday, March 14, at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.

The 10 teams are identical to those identified in the first ranking on Feb. 1.  Teams making the biggest jump over the last two weeks were Ohio State from No. 6 to No. 5, while Oregon State moved up from No. 8 to No. 7.

“What we saw over the last two weeks was that the top-10 teams from February 1 for the most part handled the challenges that came their way,” said Chris Dawson, chair of the committee and associate commissioner at the Pac-12 Conference.  “It’s a great time of year for basketball fans with so many key matchups scheduled over the next several weeks.  The committee will continue to closely monitor what is taking place, and we look forward to our next top 10 ranking on February 29.”

  1. UConn
  2. South Carolina
  3. Notre Dame
  4. Baylor
  5. Ohio State
  6. Texas
  7. Oregon State
  8. Arizona State

The first and second rounds of the 2016 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship will be played March 18-21 on the home courts of the top 16 seeds.  Regional action will take place March 25-28, with Lexington, Ky. (Rupp Arena) and Sioux Falls, S.D. (Denny Sanford Premier Center) hosting on March 25 and 27, while Bridgeport, Conn. (Webster Bank Arena) and Dallas, Texas (American Airlines Center) will host regional games on March 26 and 28.  The 2016 Women’s Final Four will be held April 3 and 5 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
