NCAA women's bracket 2013: Baylor the top seed in Griner's final season

Matt Ryerson-US PRESSWIRE

The field of 64 is set for the women's tournament, which kicks off March 23.

The committee has spoken on Selection Monday and the field is set for the 2013 NCAA Women's Tournament. The top seeds were awarded to Stanford, Connecticut, Notre Dame and Baylor, with the Lady Bears awarded the No. 1 overall seed for the tournament.

Baylor will be going for its second consecutive title, and third overall, in Brittney Griner's senior season. In January, Griner broke the NCAA record for blocks, a record she will surely build on in the tournament. Notre Dame will be attempting reach the final game for the third year in a row, while UConn has reached the Final Four every year since 2008.

Having split their season series, Cal and Stanford are in the same region as the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds. It would be a fascinating Elite Eight matchup if both teams can get through their first three games.
