ESPN’s Women’s College Basketball Bracketologist, Charlie Creme, has updated his bracketology for the week.
Overall there aren’t many changes. He still has Oregon as the number one seed, hosting the first and second rounds in Eugene, and playing in Portland if they were to reach the Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight.
He has UC Davis, who is sitting at 14-10 overall and 9-2 in the Big West, as the 16 seed, with Drake out of the Missouri Valley as the eighth seed and Tennessee as the nine seed.
If those are the possible teams that would be making their ways to Eugene, it would be two very winnable games to try and advance to Portland.
The most interesting part of these new projections is Oregon being in the same region as UConn. Of course, The Ducks dismantled the Huskies just a couple of weeks ago, but that doesn’t guarantee the same thing would happen.
If that were to end up being the Elite Eight matchup, it would be the second straight season Oregon has a rematch at that point in the tournament. Interestingly enough, the team that Oregon played to reach the Final Four last season was Mississippi State, who Oregon had beaten earlier in the season, and they are the projected three seed in the latest projection.
Of course, there are some important games still to be played. Oregon has an upcoming matchup with Stanford, and a Pac-12 Tournament to play.
