UConn a 2 seed (most had still predicted a 1 seed)

UCF, #15 rpi, a 12 seed. Lowest in either tournament history for a seed that high.

No third team from the conference gets in

We are doomed even if we improve if this is the way it is to be

I don't understand half of what you typed there... Though I get your point...

Fixed it. Kind of.

The women's seeding is often unfair.

I had a "facebook memory" pop up the other day reminding me of an issue with the seeding in 2012.

When asked why Ohio State was given an 8 seed despite a 25-6 record and 8 RPI top 50 wins Greg Christopher the NCAA Division I Women's Basketball committee chair replied, "I wouldn't put a whole lot into individual seed positions... in the sense that... keep in mind that we move people up and we move people down..."

Apparently nothing has changed. Rice is 38-3 ranked #21 in the AP poll and 31 in RPI and they got a 12 seed.
