Women’s Selection Sunday live updates


After five months of regular-season and conference tournament action, we have finally reached the best stretch of the year.

It’s March Madness, and it’s setting up to be yet another eventful NCAA Tournament.

At 32-0, South Carolina seems like the easy pick to make it to the championship game, but we thought that last year, too. Fellow No. 1 seeds — Iowa, USC, and Stanford — will look to make deep runs to challenge the Gamecocks.

Like every year, injuries will play a major role in the NCAA Tournament, and none may have a bigger impact on a team than three-time ACC Player of the Year Elizabeth Kitley’s knee. Kitley injured her knee in the regular-season finale, and if she’s not at 100 percent, the Hokies could be on upset alert early in the tournament — even with the hot play of Georgia Amoore.

All eyes — well, most eyes — will be on Caitlin Clark as she plays in her final tournament before departing for the WNBA. The same can be said for Rickea Jackson and Cameron Brink, and possibly Angel Reese and Kamilla Cardoso, among others. But the spotlight will also be on the next generation of stars, including USC’s JuJu Watkins, Notre Dame’s Hannah Hidalgo, South Carolina’s MiLaysia Fulwiley, Texas’ Madison Booker, Nebraska’s Natalie Potts, LSU’s Mikaylah Williams and more.

Fill out your bracket. Set up your casting devices. Block off time on your calendar.

It’s time for March Madness.
