In Related News: NCAA Women's Basketball Championship Edition


After a 68-62 defeat at the hands of Rutgers in the quarterfinals of the Big East Women's Basketball Championship, all Marquette (23-8, 10-6) could do is sit back and wait to hear their name called during the NCAA Women's Basketball Championship Selection Show.  That happened this evening, as Marquette was issued an 8 seed in the Dayton Region.

This gives the Golden Eagles a first round matchup with the region's 9 seed, Texas (19-13, 7-9) in Knoxville, TN, on this coming Saturday at 12:30pm Central.  As with the men's tournament, the 8-9 game leads to a 2nd round matchup with the 1 seed in the region, presuming they get past the 16 seed.  In this case, it would me that the winner of Marquette-Texas would end up playing Tennessee on Monday.

I'm going to need someone to explain to me how the 5th place team in the Big East is an 8 seed when the sub-.500 in conference play 7th place team in the Big 12 is a 9 seed.
