NCAA women's basketball committee releases top seeds

By DOUG FEINBERG
AP Basketball Writer

Connecticut, South Carolina, Notre Dame and Tennessee would be the top seeds in the NCAA women's basketball tournament if the season was over.

The NCAA women's basketball committee decided for the first time to release its top four teams to this point in the season as well as the top 20 schools alphabetically. Wednesday's list gives a snapshot of the top teams, but there is still a lot of basketball left to be played over the final month of the season.

For the first time since 2003, the women will have the top 16 teams host the opening two rounds of the NCAA tournament. Over 40 teams bid to host the first two rounds and it may not be as simple as just having the top four seeds in each region host.

Arizona State and Louisville both are on the NCAA's list. Neither school submitted a bid to host because of scheduling conflicts.
