March Madness: Stanford earns No. 4 seed, will host Gonzaga

STANFORD — The quest for back-to-back appearances in the Women’s Final Four for No. 15 Stanford begins Saturday as a No. 4 seed in the Lexington Region.
The Cardinal (22-10) will host No. 13 seed Gonzaga (27-5) at Maples Pavilion, tip-off scheduled for 3 p.m.
That game will follow an opening-round matchup between No. 5 Missouri (24-7) and No. 12 Florida Gulf Coast (30-4) at 12:30 p.m.
After finishing the nonconference slate with a 6-6 record and falling out of the AP Top 25 poll in mid-December for the first time since 2001, Stanford bounced back to finish as the Pac-12 runner-up in both the regular season and conference tournament.
Cal (21-10) earned a No. 7 seed in the Albany Region and will face No. 10 Virginia (18-13) on Friday at 2 p.m. PT in Columbia, South Carolina.
Top-ranked UConn (32-0) is the overall No. 1 seed.
Other Pac-12 teams in the tournament include:
• Oregon (30-4), seeded second in the Spokane Region;
• UCLA (24-7) and Arizona State (22-12), third and seventh seeds, respectively, in the Kansas City Region;
• No. 6 Oregon State (27-3), a No. 6 seed in the Lexington Region.
USC missed out on the field of 64.
