NCAA unveils third of three top 16 reveals for 2017

Published on February 21, 2017


The NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship Sport Committee provided the third of three regular-season top-16 rankings in seed order Monday evening. According to the NCAA, the three announcements will have no bearing on the final bracket, which will be revealed on Selection Monday, March 13 at 7 p.m. Eastern time on ESPN.

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.
