The First Four of the women's NCAA Tournament continues when Purdue and St. John's and Tennessee Tech and Monmouth battle for bids in the field of 64.
The women's tournament expanded to 68 teams last year and, unlike the men's tournament where the First Four is held in one location, the women are playing at campus host sites.
Four teams – Saint Louis, Southeastern Louisiana, Southern Utah and Sacramento State – are going dancing for the first time all in hopes of making some noise in the tournament. The field will be looking to knock off defending national champion and undefeated South Carolina, which has spent the entire season ranked No. 1.
Here is more information about the second day of the First Four at the women's NCAA Tournament on the road to the Final Four in Dallas, Texas.
