Three Tough Outs for the Women's Basketball NCAA Tournament

Three teams stand out as potential tough outs in the upcoming women's NCAA Tournament:


BAYLOR - This may be Coach Kim Mulkey's best coaching job ever and that says a lot since she has two national Championships. Senior guard Odyssey Sims may be the best in the country and Mulkey has made the best out of numerous freshmen starters. She lost a lot from a team which was picked to win it all last year and there were low expectations entering the season, but this group has the talent to make it all the way to Nashville.


ST. JOHN'S - Sophomore guard Aliyyah Handford has been sensational for a team which many thought would finish in the middle of the Big East. They currently sit at 19-5 after a win over Villanova and can win the Big East Championship in Chicago in March.


RUTGERS - We have been critical of Rutgers over the past few years, but Vivian Stringer has a running team which certainly gets the fans excited. They are currently 20-5 and, after missing the NCAA's last year, should be a six seed this season. Sophomore guard Kahleah Copper can score with the best of them and the team has pulled out many close road games with clutch shooting.
