Indiana women’s basketball selected as No. 4 seed, to host NCAA Tournament


Indiana women’s basketball was selected as a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament as the field of 68 teams was unveiled Sunday. 

Despite the Hoosiers falling to Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals March. 8, the selection committee determined the cream and crimson were worthy of a host spot. 

In the Round of 64, Indiana will take on No. 13 seeded Fairfield University. The Stags enter the tournament with a 31-1 record, defeating Niagra University in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship on March 16. 

The winner of the matchup between the Hoosiers and the Stags will take on the winner of the No. 5 University of Oklahoma and No. 12 Florida Gulf Coast University. All three games will be played inside Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.

Indiana and Fairfield will face off at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
