NCAA unveils first of three top 16 reveals for 2017

Published on January 23, 2017


The results of the first of three NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship Sport Committee top 16 reveals took place during the telecast of the Mississippi State vs. South Carolina game Monday evening.

Top 16 Seeds According to the NCAA Selection Committee

No. 1 Seeds

1. Connecticut
2. Baylor
3. South Carolina
4. Mississippi State

No. 2 Seeds

5. Florida State
6. Washington
7. Notre Dame
8. Oregon State

No. 3 Seeds

9. Maryland
10. Texas
11. Duke
12. Stanford

No. 4 Seeds

13. Louisville
14. UCLA
15. Kentucky
16. Arizona State

The committee, which made top 10 announcements three times last season, increased the number to include the top 16 this year to correspond with those seeds having the opportunity to host first- and second-round games during the upcoming championship. Stanford will not able to host early rounds due to a conflict with the Pac-12 gymnastics championship taking place at Maples Pavilion at the same time.

Additional reveals of the top 16 will take place Monday, Feb. 6 and Monday Feb. 20. The three announcements will have no bearing on the final bracket that will be revealed on Selection Monday at 7 p.m. ET March 13 on ESPN.
