Notes on the bracket:
Seeds and locations are not matched yet. The committee matches seeds with locations after it fills out the bracket on Selection Monday.
Unlike the men's tournament, women's teams that host the first and second round not only can play at their host site, they are required to play there. However, regional hosts cannot play at their host site, so that means Dayton cannot be in the Dayton regional, and Memphis cannot be in the Memphis bracket.
Conferences with more than one bid:

10: Big East
6: ACC, Big 12
5: Big 10
4: Pac 10, SEC
3: A-10, C-USA, OVC, Sun Belt, WAC
Last four in: Houston, Louisiana Tech, Middle Tenn St, Purdue.
Close, but NIT (Not In Tournament): Duquesne, Michigan, Texas, Toledo.
Teams marked with a * either have already received automatic bids or are current leaders of conferences with automatic bids.

The conference leader is defined as the team with the highest RPI among those with the fewest conference losses. Once the conference tournament starts, the conference leader is the highest seed still alive.

The selection committee (year term expires):
  • Jane Meyer (10) - Iowa - Chair
  • Tina Cheatham (10) - Southland
  • Greg Christopher (12) - Bowling Green
  • Leslie Claybrook (14) - Rice
  • Richard Ensor (11) - MAAC
  • Heather Gores (12) - Gonzaga
  • Carolayne Henry (14) - Mountain West
  • Marilyn McNeil (11) - Monmouth
  • Camden Wood Selig (11) Western Kentucky
  • Jaclyn Silar (10) - Duke
