Seattle U to face OR in NCAA women's tournament

Oregon head coach Kelly Graves holds the championship trophy after the Ducks won the Pac-12 tournament championship in Seattle

The Oregon women's basketball team won't have to leave the Pacific Northwest until the Final Four round in the NCAA tournament.

The Ducks, who ended a 12-year NCAA Tournament drought and made a run to the Elite Eight last year as a No. 10 seed, won their first conference championship since the 1999-2000 season and cut down the nets at the Pac-12 Tournament for the first time ever.

Friday's game will be at 7 Eugene and will air on ESPN2.

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

The Ducks (30-4) hope to see those fans and thousands more on Friday, when the arena hosts two first-round games.

If the Redhawks can find a way to upset the Ducks in the opening round, they'll face the victor of the Green Bay-Minnesota game in the tournament's Eugene pod.

College basketball team bus crashes in Minnesota
Several people were hurt when a basketball team's charter bus heading back to IL from NDSCS in Wahpeton crashed on I-94. The team had taken part in a basketball tournament at the North Dakota School of Science in Whapeton, North Dakota.

The No. 1 seed in the Spokane Regional is Notre Dame. Wing Satou Sabally was named conference freshman of the year.

OR swept the Pac-12 championships this season, winning the regular season title for the first time since 2000, and winning the conference tournament for the first time ever.

Seattle averages 68.9 points per game and holds opponents to a.393 shooting percentage.

OSU is led by senior Marie Gulich, who averages 17.1 points, 8.9 rebounds and almost three blocks per game. We have the best fans, and to play on our home court again, that is where we're at our best. Instead of getting in, though, it was passed over just like the USC men's team. The other first-round matchup in Knoxville pits No. 3 seed Tennessee against 14th-seeded Liberty, with tipoff at noon. The second-round victor will head to the Sweet 16 at the Lexington Regional. The 32-0 Huskies enter the NCAA Tournament as the lone unbeaten team and went wire-to-wire as the unanimous top team.

The Beavers head to this year's NCAA Tournament with a record of 23-7 - its fifth straight 20-win campaign.
