Oregon Ducks get No. 2 seed in NCAA women's tournament”

The Pac-12 Conference women's basketball contingent doubled up the number of bids the men's teams earned to the NCAA Tournament, landing six teams into the field that was announced Monday on ESPN.

Seattle U earned its NCAA berth by winning the WAC Tournament over the weekend, while the Ducks secured their berth by winning the Pac-12 tournament two weeks ago in Seattle.

Seattle U is seeded No. 15 in the Spokane region while OR is seeded No. 2.

After three consecutive seasons hosting games in Corvallis, the Beavers on Monday drew a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Tournament's Lexington Regional and will open at 9:30 a.m. Friday against No. 11 seed Western Kentucky (TV on ESPN2) in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Sabrina Ionescu, the Pac-12 player of the year and conference tournament most outstanding player, leads the Ducks, averaging 19.4 points and assists 7.8 assists.

If Oregon wins, it will host the victor of No. 7 seed Wisconsin-Green Bay and No. 10 seed Minnesota on Sunday.

Notre Dame, Louisville and Mississippi State are the other No. 1 seeds.

Last season, the Ducks set a program record by reaching the NCAA Elite Eight.

Both the Oregon and Oregon State squads made the tournament. We have the best fans, and to play on our home court again, that is where we're at our best. "When the fans get involved, it's just a great atmosphere".

Should Oregon State advance, it will play on Sunday against the victor of No. 3 seed Tennessee and No. 14 seed Liberty. The second-round victor will head to the Sweet 16 at the Lexington Regional. A trip to the Final Four would take them to Columbus, Ohio.
