TV Alert: Pac-12 Networks set to talk about conference NCAA tournament teams

The excitement of “Selection Monday” is over. ESPN unveiled the NCAA tournament field and Stanford supporters are hyped about the Cardinal (29-3) being a No. 2 seed. You can thank Washington for that. According to Carolayne Henry, the Division I women’s basketball committee chair,  Stanford’s one loss against an opponent with a low RPI — ahem, UW at 89 — was worse than any of South Carolina’s losses.

So, South Carolina (27-4) is headed to Seattle to play No. 16 seed Cal State Northridge (18-14) on Sunday at 2:30pm at Alaska Airlines Arena in the NCAA tournament first-round. Oregon State (23-10) returns to the city as a No. 9 seed to play No. 8 seed Middle Tennessee State (29-4), which features Storm G Alysha Clark as an assistant coach. That game is set for 5pm on Sunday at Alaska Airlines Arena.

For more on the bracket from a Pac-12 view, flip to Pac-12 Networks at 7pm on Monday for the “Pac-12 Sports Report: Women’s Basketball Selection Special.” The show is mostly specific to the Pac-12, including interviews from coaches headed to the big dance, videos from the watch-parties, breakdowns of the matchups and the top-12 women’s basketball plays of the year, in addition to analysis on a national scope.

Following at 8pm is the debut of the 30-minute documentary “Tara VanDerveer: Life in a Season.”
