The NCAA tournament field is taking shape, as two more automatic bids were won Monday. But all eyes are on the bubble, and in Charlie Creme's latest projection, Southern California is out and South Dakota State is in. Minnesota, Rutgers and Creighton join the Jackrabbits in the "last four in."
February has arrived, which typically means one thing in espnW's mid-major rankings: Green Bay is back at No. 1.
Applying the philosophy the NCAA Division I women's basketball committee appeared to use in its first reveal shed some light further down the S-curve. That was good news for Creighton, Purdue and Nebraska but not for TCU.
Florida Gulf Coast, South Dakota State and Green Bay maintain their hold on the top of the mid-major rankings. But while the Jackrabbits are chasing the Eagles, there isn't a better mid-major player than South Dakota State's Macy Miller.
The door seems open for mid-major teams to contend for at-large invitations to this year's NCAA tournament. But other than the familiar trio of Green Bay, South Dakota State and Florida Gulf Coast, many mid-majors have played themselves off the board.
There's a new No. 1 as Florida Gulf Coast replaces Green Bay atop Graham Hays' biweekly mid-major poll. Mercer and Central Michigan break into the top 10.
The Phoenix still lead the way and the top three remain the same in espnW's biweekly rankings. But Florida Gulf Coast jumps three spots to No. 4 and a pair of MAC teams make their debut.
Asia Durr scored 18 of her 20 points in the second half and No. 4 Louisville overcame an eight-point halftime deficit to beat South Dakota State 68-64 on Sunday.
Green Bay replaced South Dakota State on the top line, but No. 3 New Mexico made the biggest jump in espnW's biweekly rankings. Middle Tennessee and Belmont round out the top five.
With Macy Miller back after a knee injury sidelined her for most of last season, South Dakota State holds the top spot in our first poll of the season. Northern Colorado, Green Bay, Middle Tennessee and Western Kentucky round out the top five.
With three victories against power conference schools, Gonzaga climbed to No. 1 in espnW's mid-major poll. Two new teams -- South Dakota and Harvard -- joined the top 10.
Jazmine Jones scored a career-high 15 points to lead No. 8 Louisville to a dominating 83-30 victory over South Dakota State on Wednesday night.
Thought we were done talking about a 1-vs.-2 showdown? Not so fast. Green Bay and South Dakota State, the top teams in espnW's mid-major poll, clash Friday. Five new teams joined the top 10.
Peyton Little scored 17 points to lead No. 13 Oklahoma to a 74-60 victory over South Dakota State on Wednesday night.
South Dakota State remains on top, but Gonzaga jumps six spots to No. 2 after its first win in program history over Stanford. Drexel, which upset Syracuse, and three other teams join the top 10.
How competitive is women's basketball outside of the Power 5 conferences? The two mid-major teams that met in last season's WNIT final aren't even in our preseason rankings.
This season's Stanford team isn't as dominant as it had been in the past, but the Cardinal's grit has led them to the Sweet 16, where they will meet top-seeded Notre Dame.
Lili Thompson made a go-ahead 3-point play with 8.2 seconds left, and Erica McCall delivered a big block moments later to lift No. 4 seed Stanford to its ninth straight Sweet 16.
South Dakota State's upset bid denied
The Jackrabbits had a chance to be the fourth 12-seed in women's NCAA tournament history to make the Sweet 16, but their potential game-winning shot was blocked by Stanford.
