2/18 Women's Basketball Bracketology Breakdown

Rutgers Women's College Basketball

Last Eight In: Duquesne, Charlotte, South Florida, Michigan State, LSU, Kansas, Washington, Arkansas

First Eight Out: West Virginia, Rutgers, Illinois, Virginia, Saint Joseph’s, St. John’s, Saint Mary’s, Wyoming

Unlike on the men’s side of things, the top teams in the world of women’s college basketball are taking care of business. On the other end, the Atlantic 10 is dominating the bubble right now. Dayton is the obvious force in the conference, but Charlotte, Duquesne and Saint Joseph’s are all right in the mix. Charlotte moves into this week’s bracket with a 19-4 overall record. They finish up the regular season with three of their final four games on the road, but they are playing great basketball right now and are still projected to end the year in the 2013 NCAA Tournament. The Lady Dukes took a bit of a hit with a thrilling loss to Saint Joseph’s on Wednesday, but they have the opportunity to get a huge win at Dayton. The Hawks, who also play at Dayton before the end of the season, had a good week but also have to play at Fordham this week.
