Of course, it wasn’t a must-see for the Indiana women’s coach; at the time she had no idea that her team would end up facing the Longhorns in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The two teams meet Friday in Eugene, Ore.

Moren took a few mental notes, but there was something about Texas that definitely stood out.“Joyner Holmes is going to be a beast to deal with,” Moren said.

“If you look at her, you’d think she was just a post player, but if you look closer you’ll see a post/forward/guard,” Moren continued. “She can face up and that’s always a concern when we go into a game with the size problem we have.”

If seventh-seeded Texas (23-9) has any advantage over 10th-seeded Indiana (20-12), it will its height edge with 6-3 Holmes, 6-4 post Jatarie White and 6-5 post Charli Collier. By contrast, the Hoosier’s tallest starters are 6-2 forward Kym Royster and 6-foot forward Brenna Wise.

Texas ranks fourth in the country, out of 349 teams, in rebounding, averaging 10.4 more boards a game than its opponents. The Horns have won the rebounding battle in 28 of 32 games this season and 117 of their last 137.

This marks the sixth straight season the Longhorns have earned a tournament bid under seventh-year coach Karen Aston. Texas has not lost a first-round game during that stretch, but Indiana, the 10th-place team from the Big Ten, is not traveling to Eugene to observe its nature trails.

“You’ve got more than 300 teams competing (in women’s basketball) and only 64 make it,” Wise said. “So this is a special 64 and we’re all aiming for the same end game.”

Indiana, which played in the WNIT the past two years, must have impressed the NCAA selection committee with a few quality wins. The Hoosiers defeated five teams that currently rank in the top 50 of the Ratings Percentage Index that the committee uses to select the 64-team field — No. 7 Iowa, No. 35 UCLA, No. 41 South Dakota, No. 43 Michigan State and No. 46 Michigan.
Michigan is the only common opponent for Texas and Indiana.

Texas defeated the Wolverines 69-52 in the Gulf Coast Showcase on Nov. 24 in Fort Myers, Fla., behind White’s 15 points and 7 rebounds; Indiana split their Big Ten season series against the Wolverines, winning 70-60 on Jan. 24 at home and losing 67-58 on Feb. 14 in Ann Arbor.

Indiana’s best player is junior guard Ali Patberg, whose basketball journey has been filled with highs and lows. A graduate of North High in Columbus, Ind., she was named a McDonald’s All-American before enrolling at Notre Dame.

Her freshman season was wiped out, though, when she tore the ACL in her right knee one week before the season. As a sophomore, she played in 22 games for the Fighting Irish, averaging 7.7 points per appearance. She transferred to Indiana after that season.

After sitting out the 2017-18 season per NCAA transfer rules, Patberg caught fire this season. She scored 16 points in her Hoosiers debut against Wisconsin-Milwaukee and had a season-high 30 points in a November game against Wake Forest. When Iowa eliminated Indiana 70-61 from the Big Ten tournament two weeks ago, she scored 25.

“Even though she’s a junior, she’s more like a freshman because she didn’t have many minutes behind her (when she enrolled at Indiana),” Moren said. “It was a tall task to lead our team, but she stepped up in a big way.”

Patberg shares the backcourt with 5-10 sophomore guard Bendu Yeaney, whose trip to Oregon is a homecoming. She was a four-year varsity player at St. Mary’s Academy in Portland — 110 miles north of Eugene — where she averaged 28.3 points, 13.1 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 4.6 steals as a senior.

“My phone’s been buzzing ever since the brackets were leaked early (on Monday),” Yeaney said. “It’s going to be great to get back to my roots.”

The Texas-Indiana winner advances to play Friday’s Oregon-Portland State winner on Sunday. For TV purposes, game time for the Sunday game has not been determined.The 64-team field was scheduled to be unveiled tonight on ESPN. It appears that ESPNU has accidentally leaked the information.

The Texas-Indiana would advance to play the winner between Oregon and Portland State. The winner advances to the Portland (Ore.) regional.

Other notes: Texas A&M will play host to first- and second-round games in College State. Iowa State will play host as the No. 3 seed in Ames. Kansas State of the Big 12 made the field as a No. 10 seed.

Uconn vs Towson

Uconn vs Towson : Towson women’s Basketball 2019 Receives No. 15 Uconn vs Towson seed in NCAA tournament, will face UConn on Friday. Towson University Towson Tigers pulled off season’s first big Uconn vs Towson upset, defeating UConn 33-18 Thursday night at Rentschler Field in East summary of the Towson Tigers vs UConn Huskies basketball game.

The Huskies have won 25 consecutive first-round games by an average of 48.8 points per game with their last loss being to Louisville in 1993. They have also won 25 consecutive second-round games including 19 in a row by at least 15 points or an average of 32.1 points per game.

Samuelson is expected to play for the first time in five games after sitting out the last four with a back injury suffered on Senior Day. She has scored in double figures in every game this season.Christyn Williams had intended to take a nap before heading over to the Werth Center around 6:30 p.m. Monday to watch the NCAA Selection Show with her teammates.

Those plans were interrupted, though, by UConn associate head coach Chris Dailey.“I just got a call saying, ‘Get to the gym before 5,’ ” Williams, a freshman, said. “We were originally supposed to be here at 6:30. That’s a big difference.”

Williams and her teammates got to watch the tournament reveal together, albeit much earlier than expected after ESPN inadvertently displayed the 64-team bracket on screen in the afternoon.

That surprise was topped by another when they learned their seeding. The Huskies were placed in the Albany (N.Y.) Regional not as a No. 1, but as a No. 2. They will begin their quest for a 12th national championship against No. 15 Towson (20-12) Friday at 6:30 p.m. at Gampel Pavilion.

“One seed, two seed, either way basketball has to be played,” guard Crystal Dangerfield said. “We get a game Friday. If we do well in that one, we get one Sunday.”

UConn (31-2) is No. 2 in the Associated Press poll, but the selection committee placed ACC runner-up Louisville (29-3) as No. 1 in the regional — partly due to the Huskies’ weak American Athletic Conference schedule. It’s the first time since 2006 that UConn is not a No. 1 seed.

“They were our No. 1 two seed,” Committee Chair Rhonda Lundin Bennett explained on ESPN following the broadcast. “So, the things that were deciding factors were strength of schedule, as well as strength of their conference. And our committee watched UConn and … really just thought that playing down the stretch, the teams that made it onto the one line were stronger.”
This is the first season since 2012-13 that UConn has lost more than one game. One of those defeats was a 78-69 setback at Louisville in January.

“We did lose two games. I’m surprised we’re a No. 2. I thought we’d be like a (No.) 4 or 5,” Auriemma said sarcastically. “We’re not in one of those conferences that perennially wins women’s basketball national championships, so we can’t be expected to lose games and, you know, not drop.”

Baylor — which beat UConn 68-57 in January at home — earned the No. 1 overall seed out of the Greensboro (N.C.) Regional. Defending national champion Notre Dame (Chicago) and Mississippi State (Portland, Ore.) also received No. 1 seeds.

When asked whether he thought a weak AAC schedule impacted the Huskies’ seeding, Auriemma said bluntly, “Not if we had gone undefeated, would it. So, if we had won those two games we lost, then we’d be a No. 1 seed, right? Then the strength of our conference wouldn’t mean (crap), would it? There goes that theory.”

The only other team from the AAC to make the tournament was UCF, which received a No. 12 seed. The Knights will play No. 5 Arizona State in the Portland Regional.

Elsewhere in the Albany bracket, Louisville will face No. 16 Robert Morris and No. 3 Maryland will open with No 14 Radford. Rounding out the top five seeds are No. 4 Oregon State facing No. 13 Boise State and No. 5 Gonzaga playing No. 12 Little Rock.

No. 7 Oregon women’s basketball opens its third-straight NCAA Tournament at home Friday night against instate-opponents, 15-seed Portland State, in the first round of the Tournament. The No. 2 seed Ducks (29-4) host the first two rounds of the Tournament at Matthew Knight Arena for the second-straight year.

“This game is the most important game of the year because it’s the one that we’re playing right now and the one that we’re guaranteed,” Oregon junior guard Sabrina Ionescu. “We were that team that came in as a 10-seed and upset teams that overlooked us.”

Oregon ended conference play behind a loss to No. 6 Stanford in the Pac-12 Tournament championship game, while the Vikings (25-7) are coming into the weekend with momentum off a Big Sky Tournament championship victory, securing the Vikings a spot in the NCAA tournament. The Vikings are looking for their first ever NCAA Tournament win, behind a 16-point upset of Big Sky regular season champions and No. 1 seeded Idaho in the conference tournament semi-finals.

Oregon has won 26 of the last 28 games against their northern neighbors, with the last Viking victory over the Ducks coming in 2012 in Eugene. Behind back-to-back Elite Eight runs, the Ducks are 6-2 in the NCAA Tournament in the last two years alone and are hoping to advance past the Regional Final for the first time in program history.

“We know that they’re a potential Final Four team, but we’re excited about the opportunity to come here and play the best basketball we can,” Portland State head coach Lynn Kennedy. “We’re trying to take a couple things away from them early on and then hopefully get into the third quarter.”

Portland State’s 25 season wins is the most of any 15-seed, and the Vikings have lost just three more games than the Ducks this season. The Vikings outshoot Oregon from the free-point line 79 percent to 77 and outrebound the Ducks averaging 39.6 a game to Oregon’s 37.5.

Meanwhile, the Ducks’ offense averages 86.1 points per game compared to the Vikings’ 71.7 and their average scoring margin is over 11 points more than the Vikings.

Portland State is the only Big Sky team to make it to the NCAA Tournament, while the Pac-12 boasts six teams, including two No. 2 seeds and No. 4 Oregon State.

Redshirt sophomore guards Sidney Rielley and Ashley Bolston are two of Portland State’s primary outside threats, while six-foot, four-inch forwards Courtney West and Jordan Stotler dominate the Vikings post.

“I think Sidney Rielly is a Pac-12 caliber player. She’s got good range, handles it pretty well and she’s a slasher,” Oregon head coach Kelly Graves said. “Bolston is one of the better players we’ve played this year. She isn’t their leading scorer, but she impacts the game in more ways than anyone they have.”

According to Head Coach Kelly Graves, the Oregon Ducks are looking to get their mojo back in the NCAA Tournament. Oregon lost in the Pac-12 Tournament nearly two weeks ago against the Stanford Cardinal. The team has had a chance to rest after a three-day gauntlet and to prepare for a homecoming of sorts that could take them all the way to the Elite 8.

Oregon opens the 2019 Women’s NCAA Tournament as a 2 seed in the Portland Regional. They host Portland State on Friday night. The Vikings are the 15 seed and playing in just their second ever NCAA Tournament after finishing the regular season at 25-7. PSU set a Big Sky Conference record with 25 wins this season and have some momentum with the Conference Defensive Player of the Year Courtney West.
own finishing the regular season with just four losses and a 16-2 mark in the Pac-12 Conference. The Ducks and Vikings have faced each other in recent years but did not play each other this season.

Kelly Graves, fresh off a new extension has an Offense putting up over 85 points per game, good enough for third in the NCAA entering the NCAA Tournament. Sabrina Ionescu is primed to break out in the postseason. She currently holds the mark for triple-doubles for both the Men’s and Women’s game at 17. She could put on a show on Friday night against Portland State.

For the Oregon Ducks, injuries hit late in the season. Ruthy Hebard missed limited time with a knee injury but returned. Taylor Chavez missed all three games of the Pac-12 Tournament with a foot injury. Graves said earlier this week that he expects Chavez to play but is not sure when she will see the floor in the NCAA Tournament.
