NCAA women’s basketball tournament 64-team bracket revealed: Stanford is overall top seed

Corrections and clarifications: In an earlier version of this story, the school with the overall No. 1 seed was misstated. Stanford earned the overall No. 1.

The 2021 women's NCAA tournament is finally here and the road to the national title began Monday night with the tournament's 64-team bracket reveal. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all games will take place in and around San Antonio this year, with regions named after Texas landmarks.

No. 1-seeded teams include N.C. State (20-2), South Carolina (22-4), Connecticut (24-1) and Stanford (25-2). The Cardinal are the overall No. 1 and will be pursuing their third national title.

The 2019 national champion Baylor Bears are a No. 2 seed in the River Walk region.

The Huskies will be without coach Geno Auriemma for the opener Sunday as he isolates after a COVID-19 positive test Sunday. The school announced the news Monday, just hours before UConn was named a No. 1 seed.
