Women's basketball draws 10 seed, will play Michigan Friday

The Montana Grizzlies are a 14 seed in the NCAA Tournament as the selection committee placed them in the West Region. Tipoff will be at 7:10 p.m. (CBS).

The Jayhawks were named as one of four No. 1 seeds in the tournament, third-seeded overall, and assigned to Wichita.

And now, their quest for a national championship can begin as close to home as possible. "The teams that go in clicking and playing their game the best are the ones that win games". But even as the layers of this mess unfold, the Spartans (29-4) don't seem distracted. That ranks as the fifth-longest active streak among Division I schools. UM won the tournament title. "We took a day off, a day and a half off". "If you came to a workout over the summer you just knew that once we got on the court, magical things are going to happen".

Rounding out the top five are Tom Izzo's Michigan State Spartans.

Michigan State will be the #3 seed in the Midwest Region for the NCAA Tournament, and will play #14 seed Bucknell on Friday at Little Caesars Arena.

The team, which won the WNIT championship last season, was on the bubble previous year after losing three of its final four games in the regular season.

MI accepted an invitation to the WNIT the previous four years since last earning an NCAA Tournament berth in head coach Kim Barnes Arico's first season.

MSU has only once previously played Bucknell, a 64-52 victory at Breslin Center on November 21, 2003.

Conference strength matters: Two teams from the same conference have reached the Final Four 13 times in 19 years. Last year, the only one to get that far was No. 11 Xavier. "We don't want to be a team that showed up and wasn't ready to play, we want to make sure we're prepared to give our best against MI".

"We really think this game is a microcosm of life and it's not about the end result of a game, it's how we position ourselves for the rest of our lives".

LeBron James won't let injuries be excuse for Cleveland Cavaliers
If James were to sign with the Lakers or stay in Cleveland, he may have to readjust his thinking on a couple of key fronts. The world knows what I can do and what I bring to the table.

"Definitely not taking anybody for granted". Stephen Brown averages 14.9 points and 4.3 assists per game while shooting 48 percent from the floor.

UConn, which has been a No. 1 seed every year since 2007, opens up against 16-seed Saint Francis (Pennsylvania) on Saturday morning.

MSU lost, 88-81, to the Blue Devils on November 14 in the Champions Classic in Chicago.

But the Spartans are not looking ahead to any potential rematches.

Sophomores Miles Bridges and Joshua Langford have also had their struggles on offense lately.

Last NCAA appearance: 2017, lost to Kansas in second round.

MSU will have no public sale of its ticket allotment. The Cornhuskers will play seventh-seeded Arizona State at 3:30 p.m. (ET) Saturday on ESPN2 with the victor of that game advancing to play No. 2 seed (and subregional host) Texas or 15th-seeded ME on March 19.

MSU's loss to MI snapped the Spartans' 13-game win streak.

However, ESPN's Jay Bilas thinks there is another team worthy of a top seed. "Not that you need any motivation this time of year".
