NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament 1999
Women of the Court
NCAA women's basketball fans know that the men's game isn't the only one in town.
Though the men get more media attention, and far more discussion around water coolers, the NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Tournament cannot be overlooked when it comes to the players' excitement, tenacity and intense desire to win.
Three-time defending champion Tennessee leads a record eight Southeastern Conference teams into the 64-team tournament. Just how tough was the SEC this year? Consider that Florida was given an 11-seed in the Midwest with a 19-13 overall mark. They were 6-8 in conference play.
The No. 1 seeds from each bracket —and the favorites to reach San Jose— are Tennessee (East), Connecticut (Mideast), Purdue (Midwest) and Louisiana Tech (West).
