The teams on the bubble of the women's NCAA tournament had their status confirmed by the selection committee on Sunday.

The NCAA released the names of what's called the "debatable eight," the last eight teams under consideration for at-large bids into the tournament. Only four will make it into the field. That will be announced on Monday's Selection Special on ESPN (7 p.m. ET).

The eight, in alphabetical order: Arkansas, Auburn, Indiana, Ohio, Princeton, Tennessee, TCU and UCF.

However, Princeton locked up an automatic NCAA berth on Sunday by winning the Ivy League tournament shortly after the NCAA released its debatable eight.

Tennessee, one of three teams from the SEC, has never missed the field since the NCAA tournament began in 1982.

Arkansas made it on the strength of the Razorbacks' run to the SEC tournament championship game, which it lost to projected No. 1 seed Mississippi State. Tennessee and Auburn lost in the SEC tournament quarterfinals.

Indiana won the WNIT title last season, and TCU was a WNIT semifinalist. The Hoosiers lost in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament, and TCU did the same in the Big 12 tournament quarters. TCU has not made the NCAA field since 2010.

UCF, seeking its first NCAA tournament bid since 2011, lost three times to projected No. 1 seed UConn this season, including in the American Athletic Conference tournament title game.
