Oklahoma, Oklahoma State nab at-large bids to NCAA women's basketball tournament

  • This year's NCAA Tournament is a bit tainted

Syracuse and Oklahoma State will play at Humphrey Coliseum at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

The slate included four teams - No. 1 Connecticut, No. 2 Baylor, No. 6 OR and No. 8 Texas - that are firmly in the Final Four OR national title picture.

Arguing the case for a team such as Oklahoma or Syracuse being in the tournament is preferable to arguing about the credibility and legitimacy of major college basketball.

University of Arizona's (27-7) head coach Sean Miller is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for allegedly paying his recruits to play for the Wildcats. "So we look at all the games".

Bringing home OU's first Freshman of the Year honor adds to a growing list of national recognitions.

The Rhode Island Rams (25-7) are coming from a 58-57 loss to Davidson in the final game of the A10 division.

Battle is the fifth player in Syracuse history to reach 1,000 points in his first two seasons, joining Lawrence Moten, Johnny Flynn, 2003 NCAA Tournament victor Gerry McNamara and Billy Owens.

"It felt like the whole season", OU graduate guard Maddie Manning said. Gonzaga broke through its glass ceiling previous year, advancing to the Final Four for the first time. "That group of guys set the bar". Louisville didn't beat anyone in the top 50 of the RPI.

"We weren't quite as close to the bubble as we thought we were", Boynton said. "We're not scared of anybody". "Now it is up to us to play that way".

The Rams were a No. 11 seed last season, downing Creighton in their opening game, 84-72, and falling short against OR, 75-72, in Sacramento. 1 seed Kansas twice, topping teams ranked in the top seven by the AP poll a total of four times.

"It kind of makes sense", Hurley said. "We're still not quite there yet but we're getting better every day".

And to be frank, I don't think anyone here got "snubbed".

The Sooners finished 18-13 overall and just 8-10 in the brutal Big 12, putting themselves on the bubble heading into Sunday.

That, a 6-4 finish over their last 10 games and an 11-7 conference record defined the Sooners' inclusion, according to selection committee chair Rhonda Lundin Bennett. Young became the first player in NCAA history to lead the nation in scoring and assists, averaging 27.4 points and 8.8 helpers. "It's going to be a fun matchup".

Sometimes, there are conspiracy theories, and this there were three after the NCAA Tournament field was announced on Sunday night.

"And when you didn't watch the games, you're left to make decisions via spreadsheet".
