Who will win women's tourney?

Bracketmania didn't end Sunday. On Monday, the women's NCAA tournament field was released, with -- as expected -- UConn (34-0) earning the No. 1 overall seed for its quest to win a record ninth title. Fellow No. 1s are Notre Dame (also undefeated), Tennessee and surprising South Carolina, with Duke, Stanford, Baylor and West Virginia receiving No. 2s. Which team will take the whole thing? Are you rooting for the Huskies to make history?

A battle of the point guards?

Brittney Griner is literally and figuratively the biggest star when No. 1 Baylor hosts No. 2 Connecticut, but does Odyssey Sims (above) give Baylor a big edge at point guard?

SportsNation

Who leads No. 2 Connecticut?

The unbeaten Huskies have a talented center of their own in sophomore Stefanie Dolson (above), but is she the best player on a team long defined by Maya Moore?

SportsNation

Just how good is Brittney Griner?

Speaking of Moore, she had a pretty good run with two titles and a record winning streak. But is Griner already a more dominant player?

SportsNation

Who is the Big 12's best coach?

Baylor's Kim Mulkey already has one national championship, but is she the best coach in a conference with no shortage of big names?
