Top Overall Seed


The changes since April's bracket begin at the top. LSU won the national championship -- and the offseason, with the additions of transfers Hailey Van Lith and Aneesah Morrow. Morrow's decision to leave DePaul for Baton Rouge pushed LSU past UConn for the top overall seed. UCLA and Ohio State bump conference rivals Utah and Iowa to claim the final two No. 1 seeds. That shift hints at how compelling the Pac-12 and Big Ten races will be, as those conferences lead the way with nine and eight bids, respectively.
