Nearly 160,000 brackets were completed in this year's Women's Tournament Challenge.

But the 13 we're paying the closest attention to are the brackets that WNBA players and ESPN.com contributors filled out as part of Bristol's Best. The annual league allows you to track your favorite player's picks and compare your predictions to brackets from ESPN's analysts.

ESPN analyst Nancy Lieberman, right, was one of three people in the group to nail the Final Four.

Almost half of our entrants tabbed LSU as their winner, but Diana Taurasi and Bird made sure Connecticut was a favorite on their brackets. Tennessee was Tamika Catchings' pick, and was the champ on four total brackets.
