NCAA Women's Pairings

North Carolina, Florida State, UCLA and Stanford are the top seeds in the 64-team NCAA Division I women's tournament.

Maryland (15-4-1) earned a No. 4 seed and will host matches Friday at Ludwig Field in College Park. The Terps face Monmouth (15-4-1) and Villanova plays Washington State. The survivors meet Sunday.

Virginia Tech (14-7-0) is a No. 3 seed but didn't earn hosting rights and will play Murray State (11-8-2) in Dayton, Ohio. Dayton faces Marquette. (Two other seeded teams also will have to travel.)

Virginia (9-5-5) will play St. John's (13-6-1) in State College, Pa., as part of a doubleheader with fourth-seeded Penn State and Colgate.

The College Cup (final four) is Dec. 4-6 at Texas A&M. Click here for the complete bracket.

I don't like Jim Weaver.

COngrats to the Lady Jacks for winning the Big Sky title again, but Portland last year and Stanford this year isn't much of a reward. I can dream for an upset, right?

Could be worse. You could be High Point with 4 wins all season playing UNC at UNC.

Go 'Gate.

Why no mention of Loyola (MD) vs. West Virginia, both sort of local schools?

WVU is closer than Virginia Tech (according to MapQuest) 209 miles vs. 271.

Let's go Mountaineers!

Actually, High Point has seven wins, not four, but who cares? Perhaps they just need to lure the Pope back.

Rutgers is actually slightly closer to D.C. than WVU, so I guess they're a local school, too.

It is a shame that the Hokies weren't given the home-field advantage that they earned. I wish that the NCAA would give home-field advantage to the higher-seeded team, period.

OSU will be a winner in the first round. You can bet on it.

I said sort of local! ;)

Actually, jermWV, I regard WVU as more than a "sort of local" team, and I will be following them just as you are. When they made the quarters a couple of years ago, I drove up to morning Morgantown to see them play USC.

Nice! Fans of WVU are always welcome!
