COLLEGE

NCAAW

Dawn Staley and South Carolina could see familiar faces on their path to an undefeated season. The Gamecocks, named the No. 1 overall seed in the women’s NCAA tournament Sunday, are looking to become the 10th women’s basketball team to go unbeaten for an entire season. They had a chance last season before falling short against Caitlin (KATE-lin) Clark and Iowa in the Final Four. The Hawkeyes received the other No. 1 seed in the Albany Regional on Sunday. The two teams wouldn’t face off until the national championship game. Iowa is a one-seed for the first time since 1992.

NCAAM

Defending national champion UConn, a day removed from winning the Big East tournament and improving to 31-3, was chosen as the men’s No. 1 overall seed Sunday during the NCAA tournament selection show. The Huskies, who have won seven in a row and finished 7-2 this season against teams in the Associated Press Top 25, are joined on the 1 line by Houston, Purdue, and North Carolina. These are three teams that have been consistently in the top 10 during 2023-24 but lost in their respective conference tournaments last week.

SOFTBALL

Battling inclement all day on Saturday, the Texas A&M University-Commerce softball team fell 14-1 in five innings to the Southeastern Louisiana Lady Lions at the John Cain Family Field. The series finale between the Lions and the Lady Lions began as scheduled on Saturday afternoon, but a lightning delay of seven hours and 40 minutes followed while the game was at the bottom of the second. The game resumed on Saturday night, with Southeastern winning the series sweep.
