Tough road for UCLA women

If UCLA beats Big Sky champion Montana in the first round, as it should, it will have to play the No. 6 Iowa (22-8)-No. 11 Gonzaga (28-4). That means UCLA, a No. 3 seed, could face Gonzaga in Spokane.

    Nikki is learning that R-E-S-P-E-C-T is hard to get… but if UCLA goes far this year I am pretty sure we will get a seeding that reflects our players’ ability next year.

    That’s a ridiculous seeding. UCLA should have been a 2-seed, given that 3 of their 4 losses were to #2-ranked Stanford. Not only that, they’re in the same region as Stanford. Growl!!!!!


    They hate on the BRUINS! Its okay LADIES you got this!

    now, where is the logic in placing #1 and #2 teams of a conference (Stanford and UCLA) in the same bracket?

  • Larry

    Nod NY. I thought the selection committee tried to avoid putting conf teams together in the same bracket. 4 losses on the year and 3 of them to #2 Stanford and we get the same bracket. WHAT UP? Then maybe play the Zags in a home game for them! WHAT UP? And only a 3 seed! WHAT UP?

    Our women got screwed with this seed.

    Can’t wait to see the ladies knock off Stanford!!!
