Ducks At No. 14 In First NCAA Seed Reveal While Stanford Leads Pac-12

EUGENE – Oregon checked in at No. 14 in the NCAA Selection Committee’s initial release of its top 16 seeds Thursday.

The NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee has tabbed South Carolina, Stanford, NC State and Tennessee as the No. 1 seeds in the first top 16 early reveal.

If the season ended today, Louisville, Indiana, Texas and Arizona would be the No. 2 seeds. The nine through 16 seeds feature Michigan, Iowa State, UConn and LSU on the three line, while Baylor, Oregon, Georgia and Kansas State were tabbed as No. 4 seeds.

In addition, the committee provided region assignments for all 16 seeds. The Bridgeport Region included NC State, Indiana, LSU and Baylor. South Carolina would be joined by Arizona, Michigan and Kansas State in the Greensboro Region. The Spokane Region included Stanford, along with Texas, UConn and Georgia. Tennessee was the top seed in the Wichita Region, joined by Louisville, Iowa State and Oregon.

“Even though we are 46 days from Selection Sunday, this first reveal allowed the committee to dig into the games played to date and not only helped to identify those teams that were in the top 16 but also those teams to watch closely as the season progresses,” said Nina King, vice president, director of athletics at Duke and chair of the Division I Women’s Basketball Committee. “We will continue watching hundreds of games over the coming weeks as we ready for selections in early March.”

The Ducks are 12-5 on the season and 4-1 in Pac-12 play and are currently on a five-game winning streak, including two wins over top-10 teams in Arizona and UConn. Oregon is one of five teams nationally with multiple wins over current top 10 teams and one of six with at least three victories over top-20 teams after also beating Oklahoma earlier in the year.
