The Iowa State and Iowa women each learned their seeds and opponents for the NCAA Tournament in the selection show Monday night. The Cyclones won a number four seed in the Berkley Region and will face East Tennessee State in the opening round of the tournament Sunday at 6 p.m. in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
If the Cyclones win, they could face two-time defending national champion Tennessee. The Lady Vols are the fifth seed and will face tournament newcomer Ball State in Sunday’s other game at Bowling Green. The Iowa women earned an 8 seed and will take on the number nine seed Georgia Tech.
The Hawkeye women are hosts for the first and second round games, so they would play at home at 8:30 p.m. If Iowa wins the first round game, they would likely face top-seeded Oklahoma.
Oklahoma faces 16th seed Prairie View A&M in Sunday’s other game in Iowa City. The winners will play Tuesday night in the tournament’s second round at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
