The NCAA’s Division I Women’s Basketball Committee announced the third and final regular season top-16 reveal on Monday. The seeds remained the same from the last announcement on February 1. UConn, Mississippi State, Louisville and Notre Dame are the four No. 1 seeds. Baylor, Oregon, South Carolina and Texas  are the No. 2 seeds.

The committee also designated region assignments for all 16 seeds.  If the season ended today, UConn would be the No. 1 seed in the Albany Region, while Mississippi State would be the top seed in the Kansas City region, Louisville in the Lexington Region and Notre Dame in the Spokane Region.

Per the NCAA: “The three top-16 announcements will have no bearing on the final 64-team field for the 2018 NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship that will be announced during the Selection Special on Monday, March 12 at 7 p.m. on ESPN.”
