Texas Southern, Hampton women learn NCAA Tournament fates

One day after the men’s teams learned where they will be placed in the NCAA Tournament, the ladies got their assignments as well. The MEAC and SWAC champs both have their work cut out for them.

Texas Southern will make its Women’s NBA Tournament debut against no. 1 seed Baylor. TxSo finished 23-9, claiming its first-ever SWAC Tournament title in Houston on Saturday.

“We’re happy to be in Texas, it gives our fan base the opportunity to come out as well to enjoy the show and see what these ladies have to offer,” Texas Southern coach Johnetta Hayes-Perry said on Monday.

Hampton (20-12) was given a no. 15 seed and travel to Durham, NC to take on no. 2 Duke for the third time since 2010. This is the Pirates sixth trip to the NCAA Tournament in eight seasons.
