“Since our first reveal on February 11 there has been significant movement on all of the seed lines,” said Rhonda Lundin Bennett, chair of the Division I Women’s Basketball Committee and senior associate athletics director and senior woman administrator at the University of Nevada. “We have two teams that have elevated from No. 2 seeds to the one line in Notre Dame and UConn and other teams moving up or attempting to play their way to higher seeds. We look forward to conference tournament play over the next two weeks that will go a long way to determining which teams are in contention for not only top-seed consideration but at-large bids as well.”
