1/3 Women's Basketball Bracketology Breakdown

Last Four In: USC, Nebraska, Kansas State, Florida
First Four Out: Michigan State, Rice, Tulane, Texas Tech
It has been a while since our last bracketology, but things have begun to shape out this season, especially with the start of conference play. South Carolina, Stanford, and Connecticut are once again the dominant programs, but with Ohio State, LSU, Utah, and Indiana showing prowess. Duke is somewhat of a surprise in the ACC, who have taken the early lead in conference play along with Florida State, NC State, and Notre Dame. Kansas has really started strong this season in the Big 12, while Tennessee in the SEC and Texas in the Big 12 aren’t quite living up to their expectations this season, but they still are safely in the field of 68.
